Leasing first, other purchasing assistance then. In wanting to emphasize the electric car rental formula at moderate rents which has, to say the least, been very popular with the French and which should return in 2025, the government has left aside other purchasing aids (ecological bonus, conversion bonus and retrofit) maintaining confusion among both professionals and motorists. Fortunately, after weeks of waiting, he deigned to share the details of the developments concerning them. Focus in this article on the scrappage bonus.
As for electric
Main change compared to 2023, the decree “removes the conversion bonus for the acquisition of a new Crit’Air 1 passenger car or van”. In other words, this boost from the State will only be granted to French people opting for a 100% electric or hydrogen vehicle. Scrapping an old car and targeting a thermal model to replace it will no longer allow you to enjoy it.
Another important novelty, and this goes hand in hand with what is planned for the ecological bonus, you must opt for one of the models appearing in the government list (details ici and there) and having a good environmental score. That is to say models produced for the majority of them in Europe.
A decreasing amount
We are waiting to see the summary table from the government and we will update this article when this is the case. Because, for the moment, the decree is singularly lacking in clarity. To summarize, however, the amount of the conversion bonus is down by €1,000. Which would mean that it would be, according to our calculations, between €1,500 and €5,000. To be confirmed soon.
One thing is certain: the values of the reference tax revenues per share (RFR/share) “involved in determining the aid amounts” have been reviewed. While the conversion bonus was aimed in 2023 at all French people with a RFR/share lower than €22,983, the limit was raised to €24,900 in 2024.
