GOVT HAS SUBSIDISED PURCHASES OF ALMOST 4,000 E-BIKES SO FAR

 

The government is calling the seventh round of a 1 billion forint (EUR 286m) tender for subsidies to buy bicycles with auxiliary electric motors on Monday, state secretary of the Innovation and Technology Ministry Tamás Schanda said. In a statement, Schanda said the government had so far subsidised purchases of almost 4,000 e-bikes at a cost of 420 million forints as part of the Climate and Environmental Protection Action Plan. The subsidies can cover half of the purchase cost: up to 90,000 forints for e-bikes with cadence sensors and up to 150,000 forints for e-bikes with torque sensors.
