On 14 December, France revealed a list of primarily French and EU manufactured electric vehicles now eligible for tax incentives of up to €7000. The list of eligible models includes 24 produced by Franco-Italian group Stellantis and 5 by Renault. EVs made in China including Tesla’s Model 3 and the Dacia Spring were not included on the list.

Other incentives included a new €100 per month leasing scheme for low income households.

It follows a pledge made by French President, Emmanuel Macron, earlier this year to produce one million electric vehicles by 2027. The move is seen as one to encourage French consumers to ‘buy from Europe.
