Factsheet: Bonus-Malus Vehicle Incentive System (France)


The French Bonus-Malus System is one of the main climate policy instruments in the French transport sector and has successfully contributed to reducing average passenger car emissions since its implementation in 2008. The scheme uses revenues from fees for emission-intensive vehicles to finance bonus payments for electric vehicles (EVs) to incentivise the car purchase decision. The study by Navigant and adelphi analyses the transferability of the Bonus-Malus System to the German context.
