In the past few months, it has been hard to get out of the news: In September, the Dutch government announced an increase in the BiK to the EVs, which will take effect as of next year.
In the study "Electric cars in the corporate market: from addition benefit to disadvantage", the effects of the policy change analysed and placed in an international context. The research shows that the changes in the BiK rules, electric driving, for employees with "a company car", makes them uninteresting. In 2019 already for the more expensive electric cars and in 2020 and thereafter also for the cheaper car segments. As a result, sales are expected to fall sharply.
The study also shows that while the Dutch government is prematurely phasing out the so far extremely successful incentive policy for electric cars in the corporate market, foreign governments are actually improving their incentive policy for electric cars. This will have a negative effect on the availability of electric cars for the Dutch market.
For this analysis, FIER's experts have used their years of experience in pan-European projects aimed at analysing the effectiveness of policies to promote electric mobility.
