- The cost of acquisition which must be less than or equal to 50,000 euros all taxes included

Up to € 5,000 conversion bonus
As a reminder, the new bonus can be supplemented by the conversion bonus. Conditioned to the scrapping of an old petrol or diesel car, it offers up to 5000 euros in the event of the acquisition of a new or used electric car. It can even be increased for people living or working in so-called “low emission” areas. ” If a local authority improves the conversion premium for people living or working in low-emission areas, the State will double this improvement, up to a limit of 1000 euros per premium Can we read in the government decree.
Like the bonus, the conversion bonus has been completely revised as part of the government’s stimulus package. In particular, vehicle eligibility has been extended to all vehicles classified as “Crit’Air 3”, namely petrol vehicles registered before 2006 and diesel vehicles registered before 2011.
