What do I need to do next?
Visit your car dealer websites/showrooms to see what BEV or PHEV may be available from them. Some Dealers may have vehicles available for you to test drive. SEAI has published a list of vehicles and Dealers from which to choose your vehicle. We would recommend that you visit a number of Dealers to get the best price.
Once you’ve agreed a price, the Dealer will apply to SEAI for authorisation of the requested grant amount. Once this has been approved, the Dealer will order the vehicle and conclude the sale with the customer invoicing the customer for the vehicle at the vehicle price less the grant amount. The Dealer will supply information to SEAI at the conclusion of the sale. Once all information is in order, the Dealer will then receive payment for the remaining price of the vehicle. Using this method the scale of the loan required by the customer to purchase the vehicle is reduced.
