Car incentives 2022: how the new eco-bonus works

Car incentives 2022

The 2022 car incentives represent an important benefit for all Italian motorists interested in buying a new car; in 2021, they made a substantial contribution to the four-wheeler market and, in particular, to the sales of models with low or no environmental impact (at least as regards the emissions linked to the use of the vehicle itself).

Only thanks to the eco-bonus was it possible to obtain a discount of several thousand euros on the final price for the purchase of a car. With the new treasury, intended for car incentives 2022, it is once again possible to access a useful contribution to reduce the purchase cost of eco-sustainable models. The discount is applied to the final price, thus significantly reducing the cost of purchasing the desired car.

The new car incentives for 2022 aim to offer the possibility of purchasing a new car at discounted price both to those who consider the purchase of an electric car and to motorists directed towards the hybrid. It should also be noted that the new 2022 eco-bonus, taking into consideration the emissions data, can also be extended to full and mild hybrid models, petrol, diesel, methane and LPG that comply with the CO2 emission limits set by the legislation. br>
Let's see, therefore, everything there is to know about the new 2022 car incentives and how to apply for the benefits and buy a new car at a discounted price:

Who can take advantage of the auto bonus and how the incentives work

The objective of the car incentives is to support the automotive sector and all the supply chain by offering a contribution to the purchase to customers who have, in this way, the possibility of accessing a vehicle with favorable conditions. At the same time, however, car incentives are also a tool for renewing the fleet with the introduction on the roads of new cars with low or no environmental impact.
For electric cars, with zero emissions, it is possible to access the higher value of the contribution provided by the car incentives. On the other hand, as emissions increase, there will be a decrease in the amount of the discount that can be accessed thanks to the eco-bonus which will then be canceled once the maximum limit set by the legislation is exceeded.

The contribution to The purchase envisaged by the car incentives is paid by the seller to the buyer by offsetting the purchase price. In essence, the amount of the eco-bonus is transformed into a discount on the sale price offered by the dealer, thus allowing the customer to access the vehicle with favorable conditions. It should be noted that the dealer is required to apply a discount to the list price of the vehicle sold with the support of the incentives.

Car incentives 2021: the discounts available for electric and hybrid vehicles with or without scrapping

In the course of 2021 it was possible to access various car incentives to buy electric cars, hybrids (in various forms) or in any case models with a low environmental impact. The eco-bonus structure followed what is indicated in the previous paragraph. The discount is granted to the customer during the purchase phase (of a vehicle approved as category M1) with the actual amount of the incentive linked to the homologation data of CO2 emissions as well as the possibility of scrapping a used vehicle compatible with the legislation ( registered for at least 10 years, pre-Euro 4 homologated and belonging to the same category as the vehicle to be purchased).

A maximum list price of 50,000 euros was set for the purchase of vehicles falling within these two ranges (including optional, excluding VAT; with VAT the maximum price was 60,000 euros). The third bracket, including vehicles with emissions between 61 and 135 g / km, could have access to an incentive of 1,500 euros (+2,000 euros discount from the dealer) with simultaneous scrapping. For this category of cars, the legislation set a price limit for the vehicle to be purchased equal to 40,000 euros (including options, excluding VAT; with VAT included, therefore, the limit increased to 48,880 euros).

To state incentives regional car incentives can also be added together with individual local authorities that have launched independent initiatives to support the diffusion of ecological cars. Among the regions that have launched purchase incentive plans during 2021 we find Lombardy, Piedmont, Trentino and Sardinia as well as the autonomous provinces of Trento and Bolzano. Access to regional incentives is always linked to the availability of regional funds which are distinct from funds for the national eco-bonus.

Car incentives 2022: purchasable models, amounts and limits

Incentives cars for 2022 will follow a slightly different pattern than those of 2021. The definitive legislation will be made official starting in April. The guidelines have already been clarified. The eco-bonus for 2022 will continue to follow the same delivery methods with the possibility for motorists to obtain a discount on the price for low environmental impact cars. With the scrapping of a used vehicle up to Euro 5, an additional discount can be obtained on the purchase of models falling within the first two bands.

Three bands are set for access to the car incentives for 2022:

0-20 g / km: up to 5,000 euro discount in case of scrapping and up to 3,000 euro discount without scrapping 21-60 g / km: up to 4,000 euro discount in case of scrapping and up to 2,000 euro discount without scrapping 61-135 g / km: up to 2,000 euro discount in case of scrapping; the incentive is not provided without scrapping Unlike what was recorded with the car bonuses for 2021, the legislation for 2022 provides for different limits regarding the maximum price of cars that can be purchased with the incentives. Pending the decree that will formalize the new limits, a lowering of the maximum price that cars that can be purchased with the bonus can have has already been anticipated.

In particular, a ceiling of 35 thousand euros + VAT is envisaged for cars falling within the 0-20 g / km category (therefore for electric cars) and 45,000 + VAT for vehicles in the 21-60 g / km category (consisting essentially of plug-in hybrid cars only). There is also a cut to 35 thousand euros + VAT as regards the maximum price of cars with emissions falling within the 61-135 g / km range that can be purchased thanks to the scrapping bonus. As regards the methods of accessing the car bonuses, however, there will be no substantial changes compared to what already happened in 2021. The concessions will continue to be recognized in the form of a discount on the purchase price applied by the dealer and only if all the requirements are met.

The success of the 2022 car incentives will be defined by the funds available for access to the concession. Also for this year, in fact, access to incentives is not unlimited but bound to the actual availability of funds that can be consulted in more or less real time by connecting to the appropriate official website of the Mise.

For 2022, a total allocation of 615 million euros is foreseen (considering all the types of eco-bonuses that can be disbursed). Funds of 220 million euros are foreseen for the models in the 0-20 g / km range. For the 21-60 g / km range, however, the funds reach 225 million euros. The funds for the 61-135 g / km range are 170 million euros.

As regards the 2022 car incentives, there will also be the possibility of relying on regional incentives in addition to the national eco-bonus. able to guarantee an additional discount on the purchase of a low environmental impact model. Access to regional car bonuses is linked to the region of residence and the availability of funds allocated by local authorities.
