According to reports in France, the scheme covers 40% of a company’s conversion costs up to a total of €50,000 per vehicle.

Moreover, €50,000 is available for the purchase or rental (for a period of at least two years) of a new electric and/or hydrogen truck, bus or coach.

The grant scheme, known as the “retro-fit bonus” had already been in place for light commercial vehicles, but has now been expanded to trucks.

In addition, a zero-interest loan scheme for the purchase of small electric vans priced under €60,000 has also been announced.
