The Subsidy Withdrawal Mechanism of Electric Motorcycles

February 28, 2019

There are three subsidies to encourage people to purchase electric motorcycles, which are enacted by the Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Environmental Protection Administration, and its local Environmental Protection Bureau. The subsidy varies depending on the countries people lived and whether the old motorcycle belongs to a second-stroke scooter. Take Chiayi City as an example, people who want to get a new motorcycle could receive 10,000 NTD from Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs, 3,000 NTD from the Environmental Protection Administration, and an additional 9,000 NTD from Chiayi Environmental Protection Bureau. The amount of subsidy is 2,2000 NTD per motorcycle in total. Besides, if people replace the second-stroke scooter at the same time, the subsidy will increase up to 2,9000 NTD. However, supportive measurements will be closed by the end of 2019. A new electric vehicle costs an extra 1,2000 to 1,9000 NTD and it will hinder the sale performance of the electric vehicles.
