Curious to know what the difference will be on BEV pricing under the new VRT rules compared with current pricing (which has €5,000 VRT rebate). Would be interesting to see old vs new pricing on a few e.g. Mazda MX-30, Peugeot e-208, Honda e, Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model 3.
Thanks, Kieran Donnelly

Our understanding is that the €5,000 VRT rebate will continue for electric cars with an OMSP (Open Market Selling Price) of under €40,000 and will be tapered from that to zero rebate for cars with an OMSP of over €50,000. Hence, most of the cars you mention shouldn't see much of a price change, though we don't yet have sight of how the rebate changes for cars with an OMSP of between €40,000 and €50,000.
The Mazda MX-30 currently costs from €30,495 including SEAI grant and VRT rebate.
The Peugeot e-208 currently costs from €27,334 including SEAI grant and VRT rebate.
The Honda e currently costs from €29,995 including SEAI grant and VRT rebate.
The Nissan Leaf currently costs from €29,890 including SEAI grant and VRT rebate.
The Tesla Model 3 currently costs from €47,990 including SEAI grant and VRT rebate.
