Tax benefits for Tesla in Germany

Tax benefits for Tesla in Germany

Hello, I am looking if there are any tax advantages to the Tesla S in Germany. I currently have a BMW 5 series and I am up for car renewal next year hover it's about a 25K jump from the BMW to the Tesla. I already know the standard tax rules for freelancers so I am only interested in the Electric car tax advantages (if any).

Thanks

I don't think you really have any meaningful financial incentives in Germany.
I could be wrong but that is what I remember.

Buy the car through via financing or lease it. Or first imagine doing it that way, so you have a better picture of how quickly the savings will make up for the price difference, not to mention that Tesla is the better car..

Your primary tax benefit in Germany may be avoiding fuel taxes. Have you checked if electric vs. gas/diesel costs over, say, 5 years, will help make up the price difference?
