So let’s get rid of old diesel car, and get a bonus of 10,000 Euros. Then you can an electric car. I mean here’s an interesting program folks.  In France, car drivers with an old diesel car are being given up to 10k Euros. For that’s thanks to the French government.

Like Cash for Clunkers

This rebate program is like the US cash for clunkers but even better.  Instead it’s replace a car that’s diesel and get euros. This program can get you into an EV instead!!

Diesel car euros

So those older diesel car engines that don’t meet new emission standards. For they produce extremely high levels of pollution. I mean you know soot and all that nasty stuff. That’s versus the new TDI or diesel cars that are much cleaner.

Bye Bye Diesel Clunkers

However, nothing is ever better than an electric car so this “new scheme” is to get the old diesel clunkers off roads. So get those drivers into much cleaner and greener cars.

From April, anyone with a diesel car that is at least 13 years old is invited to scrap their existing vehicle and swap it for an EV in exchange for a “super bonus” of 10,000 euros. The only condition is that they must live in one of France’s PPA zones, which designate high pollution areas and concern almost half of French residents.


The 10,000 euro bonus is actually the result of combining two financial incentives

For its the existing environmental bonus of 6,300 euros for purchasing a new EV and the new bonus of 3,700 euros for scrapping an old diesel car. If drivers prefer to replace their diesel vehicle with a rechargeable hybrid, their total bonus will be up to 6,500 euros.

In order to further encourage drivers to adopt EVs, the French government announced the installation of seven million new charging points. That’s across the country. It will also become a legal requirement to supply charging stations in car parks, train stations, supermarkets and airports.
