Therefore, according to the latest news, the government has decided to increase the already existing bonus for buying an electric bike. The change will take place on August 15, 2022. This is followed by the vote for a change in parliament within the framework of the Financial Amendment Act 2022. An additional 5 million euros will be made available for the bonus for the purchase of an electrically assisted bicycle (VAE).
Today, this bonus can be up to 200 euros. This already reduces the salty note of a VAE. But from August 15, the bonus will increase to 300 euros. And for all households. Even better, for households with more modest incomes it will be up to 400 euros.
Likewise, you no longer need to benefit from similar support from a local authority in parallel to be eligible for this bonus. In short, all the lights are on green to try your hand at an electric bike. At a time when the planet is suffering more and more and fuel prices are skyrocketing, this is excellent news.
The premium is also increased when you buy an electric cargo bike or a folding bike. So he can reach up to 2000 euros instead of 1000 euros as before. This corresponds to 40% of the purchase price of the two-wheeler.
New premium for the classic
People with disabilities are not excluded. However, the bicycles intended for them will be taken into account in this premium adjustment. Previously, this bonus was only reserved for one bike per household. Now every household member can be rewarded for riding a two-wheeler.
The period when the state did not offer any help is worrying Buying a classic bike, without electrical support, is over. On August 15, the award extension will include traditional bikes. The humblest of households can benefit from a 150 euros bonus when they equip themselves with a classic bike. Another good news to reduce your carbon footprint.
