From January 1, the state eco-incentives are back, even for petrol and diesel

They have been reconfirmed government incentives on the purchase of new cars also in 2023, for all those models and fuels that reach a maximum threshold of 135 g CO2/km. This is the second phase of a larger plan, intended for the automotive sector, launched last year by the outgoing Draghi government, intended to last from 2022 to 2030. Thus taking into consideration 2023, around 650 million euros will be allocated to finance this maneuver, of which, however, 615 directly intended for individual cars (20 are dedicated to mopeds and 15 to electric commercial vehicles).

The allocated amount will thus be available from 1 January 2023 until 31 December 2023, unless stocks run out early. But let’s see now how the brackets are divided and which vehicles can access them, with the relative discounts.

Car incentives 2023: ranges and discounts

The classic three-tier breakdown also reappears for 2023, although the price thresholds for each of them have been changed. The three bands are divided as follows:

– from 0 to 20 g CO2/km: 230 million euros
– from 21 to 60 g CO2/km: 235 million euros
– from 61 to 135 g CO2/km: 150 million

Going to simplify, it is a subdivision daughter of the power supply that characterizes the various models: the first band is essentially dedicated to electric cars, the second to plug-in hybrids while the third (the one that will probably run out sooner) is for full hybrid, mild-hybrid and classic endothermic cars.

How much will be discounted for each band?

– from 0 to 20 g CO2/km: 3,000 euros without scrapping and a good 5,000 euros with scrapping;
– from 21 to 60 g CO2/km: 2,000 euros without scrapping and 4,000 with scrapping;
– from 61 to 135 g CO2/km: 0 euro without scrapping and 2,000 with scrapping (practically for only 75,000 buyers).

But that’s not all: in fact, there is also a maximum price threshold beyond which the single model will not be able to benefit from the incentive. To calculate it, just base it on the list price of the model, including options and VAT, but excluding Ipt.

– from 0 to 20 g CO2/km: up to €42,700;
– from 21 to 60 g CO2/km: up to €54,900;
– from 61 to 135 g CO2/km: up to 42,700 euros.

The clauses

In fact, we must remember that there are some “asterisks” to be able to fully benefit from eco-incentives. In the event of scrapping, it means a vehicle with an emission class lower than Euro 5 (from Euro 0 to Euro 4), registered in the name of the person who intends to make the purchase or one of his family members, for at least 12 months. Delivery times are the responsibility of the dealer: the incentive will be considered valid only if the car is registered within 270 days (nine months) from the date of the request for the state bonus and therefore of the signing of the purchase contract. The car purchased and for which the incentive has been requested cannot then be sold within 12 months, in the case of a natural person, or 24 months in the case of a rental or car sharing company.
