Purchase subsidies

The Impulsprogramm E-Mobilität (E-mobility impulse programme),  supports the purchase and registration of electric cars with up to CHF 3 000 for vehicles that cost at least CHF  20 000. The subsidy decreases accordingly for cheaper models. It also provides subsidisation for leased vehicles, provided the contract has a duration of at least 3 years.
