This time, it’s official: the amount of the ecological bonus has been reduced for a large part of the French. Here are the unpleasant surprises.
After having declared the end of social leasing, the government continues with the evolution of the bonus rules. While they had been expected since the New Year, the changes were finally made with the publication in the Official Journal of Decree No. 2024-102. Enough to get customers, sellers and manufacturers out of the dark.
€4,000 instead of €5,000 for the wealthiest individuals
The State therefore confirms what was no longer a secret. The amount of the ecological bonus is falling for some French people. As you can imagine, they are the wealthiest. Aid on new electric cars decreases from €5,000 to €4,000. On the other hand, for the less well off, the amount of aid does not change. The latter still benefit from an increased bonus of €7,000. Note that the distinction based on the reference tax income per share has changed. The “border” is no longer at €14,089 but at €15,400.
There are no longer any bonuses for used vehicles
This isn’t the only bad news when it comes to bonuses. As was also mentioned, the bonus on used passenger cars and vans is purely and simply eliminated. It used to be €1,000.
Companies are no longer entitled to the bonus for cars
The decree completely removes the ecological bonus applicable to the acquisition of new private cars for legal entities! This will therefore be a big unpleasant surprise for businesses. In addition, on the side of legal entities, all bonuses on electric vans drop by €1,000.
These new rules come into force the day after the publication of the decree, therefore on February 14. If you ordered your car before, the more advantageous rules in force until February 13 will apply to you if the vehicle is delivered before September 30, 2024.
