Purchase bonus, Atieva, Tesla, Harley, Tomahawk, Tata Motors.

Purchase bonus start is further delayed: The waiting for the start of the eMobility purchase bonus is being extended. The Ministry of Economic Affairs expects that the talks with the EU Commission about the necessary directive can be concluded “promptly”. But we know these statements: Deadlines (“We'll make an effort until the end of the year ...”, you remember.) Were never met with electromobility anyway. The effect is fatal: In the face of this uncertainty, potential customers can only despair - or buy a combustion engine.

First Atieva Stromer from 2018: The Californian startup Atieva, founded by former Tesla managers, plans to launch an e-sedan in the premium segment in 2018, which will be followed by two electric crossover models in 2020 and 2021.
