Bonuses, grants and subsidies
Each year, several organizations and institutions launch aid programs and subsidies aimed at promoting the purchase of low-emissions vehicles which are environmentally friendly.
Diversos organismes i institucions convoquen anualment programes d'ajudes i subvencions, orientats al foment de la compra de vehicles de baixes emissions i respectuosos amb el medi ambient.
Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia)
Each year the Department of Territory and Sustainability approves the regulations of the subsidies for the purchase of low-emissions vehicles intended to serve as taxis, and in particular those which are electric or hybrids or run on LPG or Natural Gas.
The Catalan Energy Institute (ICAEN) is the public agency in charge of handling these subsidies which are typically issued at the end of the year.
Institut Català d'Energia (ICAEN)
The Institute for Energy Diversification and Savings (IDAE) is in charge of the Movele Programme nationwide, which encourages the purchase of electric vehicles.
The programme relies on an annual allocation of aid intended for the direct purchase of an electric vehicle or by means of leasing or renting.
