There is currently a huge run on electric cars, especially for the business driver. That has to do with the addition benefit. The disappearance of this probably has major consequences.
Whoever is now in the market for an electric car for partly business use, would be wise to take action quickly. Currently, an addition of four percent applies to EVs, from 2020 that will go to eight percent. We see it reflected in the sales figures, because the Tesla Model 3 cannot be dragged on for months. People want to put their EV in their name soon before New Year. The percentage will not only increase next year, because a year later the addition will rise again (to twelve percent) and in 2022 the benefit will even disappear altogether.
A worrying development, says Rob Kroon from FIER Automotive. He told BNR that, according to him, the consequences would be considerable: “I think that when we go to eight percent next year it will not be too bad. Then the growth will go out, but it will (sales, ed.) I think will be about the same as this year. But the year after; there is a certain threshold value for people to be financially stimulated to start driving electric, which then disappears. He expects the increase to be too rapid, since EVs in themselves are not becoming more financially attractive at the same pace. A financial incentive remains necessary for this. It can be a disadvantage to go for an EV because of the higher purchase price on average.
