The question on every taxi driver’s mind has finally been answered: The NTA €7,000 taxi grant is back for 2019! The renewal of this grant continues the successful 2018 offer, giving taxi drivers an extra discounts off new Electric Vehicles to be used as their taxi.
This EV incentive scheme will give Taxi drivers up to €7,000 towards the purchase of a new electric working vehicle in addition to the €3,800 SEAI grant which taxi drivers also receive, and the €600 grant from SEAI for a home charging point.
These incentives are available for the full range of eligible commercial electric vehicles along with SEAI charger grant schemes, and they will play an important role in helping commercial consumers make their purchasing decision to EVs a reality, not to mention adding to a greater number of Zero Emissions vehicles on Irish roads.
In total, that’s well over €11,000 worth of discounts available to taxi drivers as incentive to switch to Electric Vehicles.
