The subsidy scheme to encourage motorists to purchase electric cars will continue again next year, the Croatian government confirmed this week…
Around 2 million euros has been pumped into the programme, which helped subsidise the cost of around over 440 electric vehicles so far this year. The number of electric vehicles being purchased is on the rise, with just 13 registered in Croatia last year.
In a move also to promote and encourage energy efficiency, Croatia’s Minister for the Environment Michael Zmajlović also this week announced changes in vehicle registration costs, with car owners from next year now paying according to omissions and distances travelled. Those registering clean vehicles will end up paying less than their counterparts in conventionally fuelled cars. (pic: illustration)
