MOVALT Vehicles Plan/ Promotion of Alternative Vehicles

Last updated: 5 November 2017
In recent years, Spain has approved a number of initiatives intended to boost alternative-energy vehicles, both in industrial terms and to promote demand. These include infrastructure support. Noteworthy among the actions undertaken are the grants-in-aid for replacement of alternative-energy vehicles within the framework of the 2008–2012 Energy Savings and Efficiency Action Plan, the MOVELE pilot project and the subsequent MOVELE programmes, with the recent addition of the MOVEA plans. Given the difficulties that still exist with regard to the market penetration of this type of vehicles, it is necessary to continue providing aid for their purchase by regulating the granting of direct subsidies. For this purpose, the aid programme for the purchase of alternative-energy vehicles was approved: the MOVALT Vehicles Plan. The initial funding for this programme was a maximum budget of €20 million, with a limit of €600,000 for electric motorbikes (L3e, L4e, L5e). The aid included will be managed by the IDAE (Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving) and will be allocated to incentivising the purchase of vehicles propelled by autogas (LPG), compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG), petrol-gas bifuel or fuel cell, as well as pure electric vehicles (BEV), extended-range electric vehicles (EREV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV).
