ROME – The wait is over. The car incentives officially start with the publication in the Official Gazette of the specific decree which will thus make it possible to stipulate contracts at the dealerships – but which will oblige to wait until May 25 for the activation of the platform on which commercial companies will have to ‘book’ the practice for the bonus. The discounts that can be obtained vary from 2,000 euros for vehicles with traditional low-impact engines, up to 5,000 euros for 100% electric cars with scrapping of a vehicle below the Euro5 classification.
Not “the” definitive cure but certainly a signal to restart. First because it is not, at least for this time, a measure of a few months (they will last until 2024 and then will be reshaped) and above all because they clearly indicate that the path to follow is that of ecological transition. Focusing on electric and hybrid vehicles means marrying the mobility revolution and above all it finally indicates that we will all have to try to change pace and idea of the car. What you see on the horizon will be electric or in any case with very low emissions and will be used with more intelligence and less waste. With all due respect to the “electro-skeptics”, in short, the way is marked.
Now we come to the models. A very long list that includes pure electric cars (with CO2 emissions from 0 to 20 g / km (bonus of 5 thousand in case of scrapping, for a total cost of up to 35 thousand euros, excluding VAT), plug-in hybrids (21-60 g / km of CO2 with 45 thousand euros as an expense ceiling) and the other models with thermal engines with emissions between 61 and 135 g / km and 35 thousand euros as a ceiling)
Among the diesels, the best-selling model in April was the Peugeot 3008 BlueHDi which costs 36,000 euros and emits 104 g / km of CO2. It falls within the range of traditional low-emission engines (61-135 g / km) and prices up to 35 thousand euros excluding VAT. So it will benefit from a reduction of 2,000 euros but only with scrapping. The Fiat 500X 1.6 TD (26,400 euros and 121 g / km of CO2) and the Jeep Compass Longitude (32,900 euros and 135 g / km of CO2), which are in second and third place on the market, will also obtain an incentive, again with scrapping, of 2,000 euros.
Even the Mhev or Hev petrol hybrids will have access to the 2,000 euro bonus. This bonus which, for example, will be given to the Fiat Panda 1.0 FireFly 70Cv, the sales leader again in April (13,850 euros, 111-109 g / km of CO2), to the Toyota Yaris Hybrid (24,950 euros, 115 g / km of CO2) and to the Lancia Ypsilon (14,000 euros, 110/112 g / km of CO2), second and third respectively.
For plug-in hybrid models, those rechargeable even with the plug and therefore able to travel a few tens of kilometers in electric mode, the bonus with scrapping reaches 4,000 euros. A few examples? There is certainly the Jeep Compass 4xe Phev whose price list of 45.890 euros falls within the range of the provision (45 thousand + VAT), the Jeep Renegade 4xe Phev (38.550) and the Bmw X1 Phev (46.499).
The greatest benefits are obtained by purchasing a 100% electric model. The best-selling of April, the Nuova 500 Elettrica benefits from scrapping a total bonus of 5,000 euros and therefore goes from 27,300 to 22,300 euros. Same advantages for the Smart Eq Fortwo (starts at € 25,026) and the Dacia Spring EV (€ 22,103) which drops to just over € 17,000. In short, just enough to get the Italian car market back on track
