Subsidy To Promote CEV Purchase

Government will use public funds to subsidize part of the cost to purchase clean energy cars such as BEVs, PHEVs, and FCEVs

How to calculate subsidy

The amount of subsidy is calculated based on the grade of the clean energy vehicle. The subsidy is paid within the limits set per vehicle grade and subsidy will not be paid to vehicles if the calculated amount is under 15,000 yen.
Subsidy is given at a standard rate( per 1,000 yen) for each vehicle model/grade.

1Battery Electric Vehicles(BEV)

Subsidy is calculated based on the driving range per charge.

3Fuel Cell Energy Vehicles(FCEV)・Clean Diesel Vehicles(CDV)

Subsidy amount is calculated based on the price(MSRP)difference between the clean energy vehicle and the gasoline-powered vehicles of the same model/grade.
Subsidy amount(= vehicle price ‒ standard price)x subsidy rate
