Can you give us 2021 pricing on these EVs?

Hi,

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

Answer

Hi Kieran,

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.

For reference:

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.
