Under the EU CO2 standards, all new cars and vans must have zero CO2 emissions from 2035. The Netherlands targets 100% of all new passenger cars sales to be zero-emission by 2030. The government has announced its target to implement zero-emission zones for the 30-40 largest cities by 2025.

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. The National Charging Infrastructure Agenda, a multistakeholder policy agenda, predicted that 1.7 million chargers would be needed by 2030 to meet the growing EV demand. Over half a million chargers were installed as of June 2023, and 40,000 more will be awarded through 2025.

Vehicle Incentives
For 2023, the Netherlands has committed €99.4 million to an EV subsidy fund, including €67 million for purchasing or leasing new electric cars and €32.4 million for used electric cars. New EVs will be subsidized with €2,950 in 2023 if the price is below €45,000; €2,000 for used EVs.
