Astypalea is becoming a model island towards climate-neutral mobility with the pioneering project “Astypalea: smart and sustainable island”. One of the main pillars of this transformation towards e-mobility, is the replacement of vehicles on the island with the use of a pioneering transport system. In order to do so, the Hellenic Republic together with the Volkswagen Group and Kosmocar have developed significant subsidies and discounts for the residents to benefit from and move towards the e-mobility.
The discount of the Volkswagen Group and Kosmocar for all the electric vehicles, Volkswagen e-up!, ID.3, ID.4 and the electric scooter SEAT MÓ 125 reaches up to €7,750. Residents can choose their favourite vehicle and view all the price overview Here
On this already preferential price the Hellenic Republic supports the purchase of an electric vehicle from the island residents, with a subsidy of 40% on the retail price before tax for electric cars, for retail prices up to €50,000, with a maximum subsidy amount of €12,000. On top of that, the residents can scrap their old vehicle, benefiting from an extra discount of €3,000. You can see all details for the subsidies of the Hellenic Republic Here.
