ID. Volkswagen, just electric.

Our ID. models mark the start of a new era of electric mobility: intelligent, innovative and sustainable. And above all: for everyone. Because a new idea can only make a difference when everyone can be part of it. The first ID. 3 models have arrived in Ireland are available to test drive.

  • SEAI Grant - Up to €5,000 depending on the list price of the vehicle
  • VRT Relief - VRT is paid whenever a car is registered for the first time in Ireland. Electric Vehicles receive VRT relief separately to SEAI grant support. The VRT relief for Battery Electric vehicles is tapered by 50% for every €1 for vehicles with an Open Market Selling Price* of over €40,000, so that no amount of relief is available for BEVs with an OMSP value of over €50,000.
  • Low Motor Tax - At present motor tax for a BEV is €120 per annum and slightly higher for a PHEV (for example, for Golf e-Hybrid the motor tax is €140). In 2021, the emissions-based tax system for new cars tested under WLTP will continue to favour electric cars and hybrid cars.
  • Reduction in tolls - Up to €500 a year annual reduction in tolling costs on selected Irish toll roads.
  • Claim up to €600 towards the purchase and installation of an electric vehicle home charger unit from the SEAI.

    In addition, for cars purchased for commercial use, the following is available:
  • 0% BIK - Battery electric vehicles used as company cars are fully exempt from Benefit in Kind tax. To see how much you could save on BIK by switching to electric, use our online BIK calculator
