Italy: Lombardy awards €36 million to boost transition to clean fuel vehicles
The Council of the Lombardy Region approved a new resolution that allocates 36 million Euros over two years for the renewal of the region’s fleet. The goal is to encourage the shift to low or zero emission vehicles, including Autogas. 18 million in grants are already available this year and the other half in 2022. From 1 March, it will be possible to submit applications to access the incentives.
“We are moving forward to the operational phase, already announced in early January. Lombardy Region has launched a gradual, integrated, articulated path, which looks at all the complexities of our territory and sustainability. The 36 million Euros of the resolution are a mix of state resources, deriving from the air quality agreements, and regional resources. This is a double figure compared to last year. Our goal is clear: promoting and stimulating the renewal of the Lombard vehicle fleet to improve the environment, offering the maximum contribution to citizens and helping protect air quality,” said the Councillor for the Environment and Climate Raffaele Cattaneo.
The incentives will be allocated as follows:
– Zero-emission pure electric or hydrogen cars: 8,000 Euros.
– LPG, natural gas or hybrid vehicles: 5,000 Euros for CO2 emissions ≤60 g/km and NOx emissions ≤85.8 mg/km; 4,000 Euros for CO2 ≤60 g/km and NOx ≤126 mg/km; 4,000 Euros for CO2 between 60 and 110 g/km and NOx ≤85.8 mg/km; 3,000 Euros for CO2 between 60 and 110 g/km and NOx ≤126 mg/km; 3,000 Euros for CO2 between 110 and 145 g/km and NOx ≤85.8 mg/km; and 2,000 Euros for CO2 between 110 and 145 g/km and NOx ≤126 mg/km.
