The Netherlands Subsidizes Euro VI Trucks and Buses

| The Netherlands

The government of The Netherlands has introduced a subsidy for trucks and buses whose emissions meet Euro VI standard, this year and next, up to 4500 euros (approx. USD 6000) per vehicle. The subsidy is to help offset the incremental cost of Euro VI vehicles over Euro V models. The State Secretary Atsma (Infrastructure and Environment) says, ‘The gains this new generation of engines has made toward air quality is very large. I also hope that the urban distribution transport and bus companies move quickly to invest in Euro VI engines; they can make a huge difference in inner city environments. ”
