In 2012, plug-in vehicle sales had been a lot higher: 1470 units, admittedly with 500 Renault Twizy among them. The end of federal tax deduction possibilities in for electrically driven vehicles in 12/2012 considerably reduced demand for 2013. As from 1/2013, the competence of environmental incentives was not any longer exercised by the federal level. The Regions decided whether or not to continue these incentives for low-emissions cars. Since 2014 the regions in Belgium grant higher support for clean vehicles.
