More BEV registrations in Spain in 2023

The support programs in Spain for electromobility are known as "MOVES". In April 2021, the government presented and approved the current MOVES III program. The program has a budget of 400 million euros until 2023, but can be expanded to up to 800 million euros if necessary. This increases the subsidy for the purchase of an electric car to up to 7.000 euros. In Spain, in order to obtain the full premium for the buyer, a used car more than 7 years old must be scrapped.

However, if no end-of-life vehicle is given for scrapping, the subsidy is reduced to 4.500 euros for the electric car. In Spain, both fuel cell cars, pure electric cars (BEV) and plug-in hybrids are subsidized. The highest funding for PHEV is only given if the electric range is at least 90 kilometers.

As in Germany, upper limits also apply to the acquisition costs. This may amount to a maximum of 45.000 euros net. For multi-seaters with up to 8 or 9 seats, this limit increases to 53.000 euros net. E-transporters approved as BEV, PHEV or FCEV are also subsidized with up to 9.000 euros.

Also in Spain there has been a clear trend towards electric cars this year. With the new subsidy program, up to 250.000 electric vehicles should be newly registered by the end of 2023. The charging points are to be expanded to 100.000 units.

" Sales of electrified vehicles (electric and plug-in hybrids, including passenger cars, four-wheelers, commercial and industrial vehicles, and buses) totaled 37.347 units sold through the fourth month of the year, up 45,3% from last year, an improvement of 28,8 % in April with 8.511 sales made . Despite this improvement, the electrified market continues to show very low volumes with a share of almost 10% per month. At the current pace, the target of 190.000 units set by the PNIEC to meet emission reduction requirements will not be reached.” (Source ANFAC, Spain”)
