ZEV Related Policies
Under the EU CO2 standards, all new cars and vans must have zero CO2 emissions from 2035. The government targets reaching 700,000 zero-emission passenger cars by 2030, equivalent to a quarter of the passenger car fleet.

Charging Infrastructure Policies
Under the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) Member States are required to ensure a minimum total power output is provided through publicly accessible recharging stations and that fast-charging pools are installed along major European traffic corridors. Finnish EV charging infrastructure incentives include a 30% subsidy for building > 11kW public charging stations and a 35% subsidy for building >22kW fast charging stations. EV owners and users will also be able to charge BEVs and PHEVs at the workplace tax-free. In the 2022 State budget, €13.2 million have been reserved for funding charging infrastructure, renewable hydrogen, and biogas from 2022-2025.

Vehicle Incentives
While the subsidy scheme for passenger electric vehicles closed in 2022, Finland has committed €2.5 million from its 2023 budget to finance subsidies for electric and hybrid vans and trucks. Zero-emission passenger cars retain their exemption from registration tax.
