    Hi. Looking to buy a hybrid eligible for €5k SEAI grant. It’s a new model not currently available. Car won’t be delivered until July but order is being placed by the garage next week. Will it qualify for the €5k grant or given the fact that it will not be registered until July mean it won’t qualify? Thanks in advance.

    What did the dealer say?

    You agree a price with them and they claim the grant, not you, so if they have agreed a price which deducts the grant then thats what you will pay.

    What make/model car is it? Is it a plugin-hybrid?

    No confirmation only speculation that the grant is going to be withdrawn,due to run until end 2021.

    Just after reading RTE stating grants for cars over 60K discontinued from July.

    Yes ,I presume i will lose the 5K as my new car is due for delivery in July and is over the 60K threshold.

    Dealer was a little unsure to be honest, either that or wanted to let me down gently 😂. It’s a Mercedes CLA 250E, plug-in hybrid.
