More expensive, but cheaper...
Electric cars aren’t a cheap purchase. Why? The technology is expensive and comparatively speaking,
there still aren’t that many fully electric vehicles on the market. However, when you calculate the costs
per kilometres driven, you end up paying a whole lot less than with a traditional petrol or diesel motor.
What’s more, the maintenance costs are incredibly low.
Do you have solar panels at home? That's great news! It means your electric car will save you even more money.
Electricity suppliers and car makes selling electric cars often have a price simulator that allows you to calculate
which option – electric or petrol/diesel – is the best fit for you.
Electric cars in Flanders won’t be subject to vehicle registration tax until 2020. For the time being, annual
road tax and tax benefits on company cars will continue to make the choice for an electric car a smart purchase.
Please note, tax deductibility is a federal competence, while annual road tax is determined by the regional authorities.
