Transport Malta will start receiving applications for the New Grant Scheme on the Purchase of New Environment-Friendly Vehicles as from 1st January 2017.
As announced in the Budget 2017 speech, the Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure in conjunction with Transport Malta, has launched another grant scheme to incentivise the purchase of new category M1 motor vehicles (passenger cars).
This scheme is aimed at reducing the number of old motor vehicles from the road and thus reducing pollution. Subject to various conditions, the grant is as follows;

b) €700 will be given to persons registering a new Category M1 vehicle with CO2 emission levels between 101 and 130g/km;
c) €3,000 will be given to persons registering a new Category M1 Plug in Hybrid vehicle with CO₂ emissions 0-50 g/km and
d) €2,000 will be given to persons registering a new category M1 Hybrid Vehicle with CO₂ emissions between 51-65 g/km.
The Sum of €500,000 is split as follows: €400K for cars a and b, €100K for hybrid c and d Similar to last year.
They shall be given upon the purchase of a new Category M1 vehicle that qualifies for the grant scheme whilst at the same time de-registering a vehicle in the same category. Every eligible person shall be entitled to only one grant under this scheme.
