The German government had intended to offer EV subsidies until 2024. However, on December 16 last year, it announced, with immediate effect, ending all EV subsidies known as the country was facing a budget crisis. The program was initially supposed to continue until December 31 and then reduced subsidy until the end of 2024. Many automakers announced they would compensate for the 4,500 EUR subsidy, including Nio, Tesla, Mercedes-Benz, Stellantis and Volkswagen.
