We are seeing this with China and the United States, which are countries that are rapidly producing more electric cars for the world. And not only that, but they also experience strong success on many occasions thanks to their competitive price. However, France has decided to act on the matter in order to basically benefit electric cars manufactured in Europe.,
And how do they want to do this? Helping indigenous vehicle buyers and putting up some barriers to those coming from abroad, This all ties into a French plan to take into account the carbon footprint of the vehicle’s production and its batteries from 2024.
From next year it will be more difficult for foreign electric cars in France
And this is what the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, made clear, after announcing that “the ecological bonus for the purchase of an electric car will be reformulated taking into account the carbon footprint of its production and thus favoring vehicles manufactured in Europe”. will be taken.”, In which he said that “it is about supporting battery and electric vehicles that are produced in Europe, because they have a good carbon footprint”.,
This means that vehicles whose production does not meet the country’s requirements will not be eligible for a maximum exemption of 5,000 euros, as long as they cost less than 47,000 euros and weigh less than 2,400 kg., However, the proposal has not yet been converted into a decree law, which will be voted on on May 17.
In this way, the proposals of the remedy shall be specified, the terms to be used To decree where the limit will be so that electric vehicles can qualify for the aid offered by the French government for their purchase,
Be that as it may, the maximum affected by this measure will be vehicles produced in countries such as China or the United States The only solution was to set up factories in the old continent to be able to get their cars to enjoy government support.
