- The plan allocates more than 9 million to the acquisition of efficient vehicles, in addition to the installation of 26 charging points
- The majority option of users has been the purchase of electric cars
The Plan to Promote Mobility with Alternative Energy Vehicles (Movea Plan) has distributed 9,258,646 euros in aid for the acquisition of alternative energy vehicles in 2017, of which 202,196 have been used for the installation of recharging points. The profile of the average beneficiary of the aid has been that of an individual who has acquired a new electric tourism. Community of Madrid, Catalonia, and Valencian Community lead purchases thanks to the initiative.
Most of the vehicles purchased through the program have been those powered by electric power (67%), those that run on Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) have represented 21%, and those of Natural Gas 12%. 96% of the reserves correspond to new vehicles and the rest to used vehicles less than nine months old. The average life of the cars to be scrapped is 16.5 years.
By Autonomous Communities, the Community of Madrid was the one with the most validated requests with 1,093, followed by Catalonia with 590 and the Valencian Community with 171. After them, Andalusia (97), Castilla y León (72), Basque Country and Canarias (68) and Galicia (66).
Due to the legal nature of the beneficiaries, requests from individuals have been the majority (1,349), followed by companies with 895.
In total, the program has received 4,352 requests, of which 4,166 were for vehicles and 186 for charging points. Of the 4,166 vehicle aid applications, 2,444 have been validated and 870 rejected for failing to comply with the program's rules, either due to conditions or due to time limits. The dealers for their part have canceled another 331 requests. 521 requests on the waiting list were also canceled, which did not become active either due to lack of funds or due to a request from the point of sale. For charging points, 26 requests have been validated.
In global figures, both for cars and for charging points, the allowable reserves of the plan were 3,441 for an amount of 13,385,330 Euros. 2,470 files have been validated (72.4% of those evaluated) and 941 were rejected, the amount of which amounted to 4,128,684 euros, for not complying with the rules of the program. Hence, the 14.2 million with which the call came out have not been covered.
The objective of the Movea Plan is to promote the acquisition of vehicles with alternative energies, as well as granting aid for the implementation of electric vehicle charging points.
