Great news!

Electric car subsidy in 2023

As an individual, you can get a subsidy (SEPP) for buying or private leasing an electric car. Good news; the BYD ATTO 3 falls within this subsidy with both versions. Unfortunately, the total subsidy budget is limited, so reserve your ATTO 3 soon so you can take advantage of this subsidy opportunity.

How does it work?

To qualify for the subsidy, the list price of your car must be between €12,000 and €45,000. The amount of subsidy you can apply for this year (2023) for a new electric car is €2,950. This subsidy applies to both buying and private leasing an electric car.

No worries about extra options
Normally you have to be careful not to exceed the €45,000 limit when ordering extra options, but fortunately with BYD you don’t have to worry about that. In fact, the ATTO 3 is already very richly equipped as standard and only has two versions that both stay below that €45,000 limit. Standard equipment includes the panoramic glass sunroof, sport seats made of durable vegan leather, electrically adjustable and heated front seats and all the safety features you could wish for including 360° panoramic camera and blind spot monitor. No need to choose options and the price is just the price. Transparent, right?

At the front of the line

Would you like to be assured of your subsidy and drive the ATTO 3 quickly? Then book a test drive or order your car directly through the website or in the showroom. Most models and colors are available from stock so there is no need to wait long. As soon as your lease or sales contract is signed, you can apply for the subsidy.

  1. How and when can I apply for this subsidy?
    You can apply for a subsidy from January 10, 2023, 9:00 a.m. for your new electric passenger car with a purchase or lease contract entered into on or after January 1, 2023. You can then apply for a subsidy until the pot is empty. You can apply for your subsidy here.
  2. What are the conditions of the government subsidy?
    First of all, it is good to know that you must meet a number of conditions for SEPP in order to be eligible. These are the main conditions you must meet to receive a subsidy for your electric car:
    • The range (according to the WLTP cycle) must be at least 120 km. Fortunately, this is the case with almost all regular electric cars.
    • The list price must be between €12,000 and €45,000. So be careful ticking options on cars that are just on the edge.
    • The car must be built as an electric car. Cars that have been retrofitted to electric do not qualify.
    • The purchase or lease agreement must be in place by 2023.

  3. Who is this subsidy intended for?
    The subsidy is intended only for individuals (not business owners). You can take advantage of the subsidy once as an individual if you meet all the conditions.
  4. Am I entitled to a subsidy if I order a car in 2022?
    Have you signed a contract before January 1, 2023 and still want the opportunity to apply for the SEPP? Our leasing company will contact you itself after January 1, 2023, and in doing so will give you an option to enter into and sign a new lease contract. With the new lease contract, you apply for the SEPP. Don’t sign this new contract? Then your old contract will remain valid.
  5. What is the current state of the SEPP grant budget?
    You can find the current state of the subsidy budget on the central government website. In May 2023, the pot was still more than 50% full. For purchasing a new electric car, you can find the current budget state here. For the state of the budget when (privately) leasing a new electric car look here.
