This environmental score takes into account the CO2 emissions generated by the manufacturing of a vehicle. This rating will take into account:

  • the model of the vehicle and in particular the number of seats
  • the place of assembly
  • the volume and weight of the materials used
  • battery characteristics
  • or the delivery and the distance traveled between the production site and the distribution location

Until now, the State has not set any conditions on the manufacturing methods of vehicles purchased with the bonus. Hundreds of millions of euros of public money therefore went to vehicles with a very poor carbon footprint. From now on, it's over. To be eligible for the bonus, an electric vehicle must have a limited environmental impact, during the manufacturing and transport stages.”, assures Bruno Lemaire, the Minister of Economy and Finance.
