Romanian Clunkers Program Available For Electric Car Buyers Starting Next Week

According to the minister, people who want to buy electric carsthrough the program will receive six vouchers amounting to overEUR5,000 in return for a used car.

Borbely said the ministry will help those who want to buyelectric vehicles by paying up to a quarter of the price for anelectric car, but no more than EUR5,000, even if they have no oldcars to scrap.

Early April, Borbely met with officials of France's Renault,which owns Romanian carmaker Dacia, and discussed ways forauthorities to encourage the sale of electric vehicles.

 

Borbely said back then the Government could encourage the saleof electric vehicles by subsidizing car purchases for publicinstitutions and through the cash for clunkers program. Theministry is planning to pay up to a quarter of the price for anelectric vehicle.

"The price difference between an electric car and a regular onewith similar capacities is of about EUR5,000, so we thoughtinstitutions that have old cars they wish to scrap within theclunkers program could get six vouchers per clunker and buyelectric cars instead," said Borbely.
