WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ONCE YOU DECIDE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE THE FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR YOUR EV/BEV/PHEV?
1. What do EV, BEV and PHEV stand for?
EV stands for an Electric Vehicle – an automobile that has an electric motor and is fully or partially powered by a battery pack.

PHEV stands for a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle – an automobile or other vehicle that is primarily powered by an electric motor, whose battery can be recharged by plugging it into a power source. An internal-combustion engine takes over in cases where the battery is depleted.
These types of vehicles are covered by the subsidy programme administrated by EKII.

M1 and N1 are different vehicle categories.
M1 is described as a passenger car – a vehicle used for the carriage of passengers, comprised of not more than eight seats in addition to the driver’s seat. This includes cars like a sedan, hatchback, SUV and so on.
