I propose to take Questions Nos. 500 to 502, inclusive, together.
The electric vehicle purchase grant provides grant aid of up to €5,000 towards the private purchase of a new electric car. Based on supporting 5,600 privately purchased electric cars in 2020, the increased cost of doubling the purchase grant would be €28 million or €0.56 million if the grant was increased by €100.
The electric vehicle home charger grant supports the cost of installing a home charger up to a maximum of €600 for purchasers of both new and second-hand electric vehicles. An extra €100 per home charger grant based on an estimated 5,000 grants paid in 2020 would have an increased cost of €0.5 million.
