Electric car at 100 euros per month: first come, first served?

When the government soon reveals the details of social leasing and electric cars at 100 euros per month, it is expected that the eligibility criteria will be relatively “simple”.

The long-awaited social leasing, set to be unveiled by the end of the year, aims to make electric cars more accessible to the most financially disadvantaged households in France.

So far, the information available suggests that this program will primarily target the least well-off 50% of French households, with a reference tax income not exceeding 14,000 euros.

However, not all aspects of this initiative are known yet. According to our colleagues from Echos, certain criteria have been omitted to avoid adding further complexity to the program, which is already quite intricate.

No criteria apart from tax income?

According to Les Échos, criteria such as geographical location and profession for frequent drivers have been disregarded, despite initial consideration from Christophe Béchut’s office. The government has opted for a practical approach based on the “first come, first served” principle.

A selection of electric cars planned

A few weeks ago, Bruno Le Maire indicated that a list of electric cars eligible for this social leasing would be revealed. The Minister also stated that social leasing will not benefit from Chinese cars, including the Dacia Spring and the MG4, which are manufactured in China.

The government aims to put 15,000 to 20,000 cars into circulation through this social leasing, with the possibility of increasing the numbers later in the year if the program proves to be successful.
