How do I finance the purchase of an electric car?
Here you have two options:
- A private lease(1),
- Purchasing the car via a green mobility loan(2).
According to figures from the International Energy Agency (IEA), the transportation sector is the second biggest producer of CO2 emissions in the world (24%) after the electricity generating industry (41%).
Although these figures also include CO2 emissions resulting from the transportation of freight, the widespread use of private cars powered by internal combustion engines for our day-to-day journeys is just as much to blame.
You can make a positive impact now by opting for an electric car rather than a car powered by an internal combustion engine (diesel/petrol).
Green mobility remains the favoured option for reducing environmental impact:
Our partner Arval Luxembourg is also offering alternative solutions in this area – in particular electric bike rental
Here you have two options:
The lease option enables you to manage your budget by taking the cost of car ownership (insurance, servicing, tyres, etc.) off your hands. Our partner Arval Luxembourg offers a private lease solution(1) – the most appropriate solution for the majority of electric models available on the market.
If you choose to buy a car, bear in mind that the offer of a EUR 8,000 subsidy (excluding VAT) has been extended until 31 December 2024.

To reap the financial and environmental benefits of your electric car, it’s a good idea to charge your vehicle at home – where you can benefit from the renewable energy of the sun.
By installing solar panels(3), you can produce your own electricity. You can use this to charge your car on a daily basis as well as charge all the electric devices in your home. The surplus energy produced by your installation can also be sold back to the grid, giving you additional income.
The Luxembourg State supports the installation of solar panels throughout the country via a financial aid scheme. This allows you to obtain financial assistance amounting to up to 20% of the total cost of your investment.
