New subsidies launched in 2019 offer private citizens a grant for the purchase of a bicycle or electric assistance bicycle
The Luxembourg state issued 2,509 subsidies for the purchase of new bicycles from January to the end of August 2019.
New subsidies entered into force at the start of 2019 entitling private citizens to a grant for the purchase of a bicycle or electric assistance bicycle. The grant represents 25% of the cost of purchase excluding VAT up to a ceiling of €300. The subsidy can only be granted once, per person aged over 18, per five-year period. Electric scooters, hoverboards and solowheels did not fall within the scope of the grant, which expires at the end of 2019.
