Success of subsidy schemes in Amsterdam
Both subsidy schemes had come into effect in 2012. Since then, the numbers of electric cars on the streets of Amsterdam has risen considerably. The subsidies have helped implement around 400 electric taxis, 400 delivery vans, 25 lorries and 150 company cars; the City has granted six million Euros for vehicles and 350,000 Euros for the extension of the charging infrastructure.
New subsidy schemes
The City of Amsterdam is currently preparing a new subsidy scheme for completely electric vehicles. It has committed to continue providing incentives for purchasing electric vehicles.
