For the purchase of a bicycle (VAE), aid is available everywhere in France and can go up to 500€!

Paris region: three cumulative schemes

At the forefront of the problem of road and public transport congestion, large cities are the first to encourage their citizens to opt for electric bicycles. In Paris – which boasts about 1000 km of cycle routes, three systems overlap:

In the Paris region, the territory of Grand Paris Seine Ouest also offers a subsidy of €200, and this amount is doubled by the cities of Boulogne-Billancourt, Meudon and Sèvres, while Chaville offers an additional aid of €250 for the purchase of a second VAE. Other municipalities in the Ile-de-France offer similar schemes (up to €500 in Rueil-Malmaison).

For example, if you buy the Xiaomi bike currently at 599 euros, you will get as a Parisian: 33% of the price excluding tax (499€) i.e. 164€ (Premium Paris) + 50% of the price within the limit of €500, i.e. 299€ (IDF Premium) ! So in total nearly €463 in aid for this Xiaomi bike! Note that you will have to file two different files to take advantage of this assistance.

Different systems depending on the metropolises

Several regions offer aid for the purchase of a VAE: we are talking about a mobility eco-cheque in Occitanie (€200), a subsidy reserved for subscribers to the Aléop network in Pays de la Loire (€100 for a VAE , €200 for a folding bike) and a bonus corresponding to 25% of the price of an electric bike in Corsica within the limit of €500. In Marseille, it is the Department of Bouches-du-Rhône which pilots a system capped at €400. But it is mainly intermunicipalities that subsidize the acquisition of an electrically assisted bicycle:

  • the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis and Angers Loire Métropole are limited to 25% (200€ maximum);
  • Bordeaux Métropole and Nantes Métropole grant a grant of €100, subject to resources in Bordeaux (tax quotient less than €2,200) and doubled in Nantes for employees of companies that are members of the Mobility Pack;
  • The City of Caen alone provides aid for the purchase of a VAE of 25% of the amount (250€ maximum). In addition, many medium-sized towns and conurbation communities support the acquisition of an electric bicycle (Orléans, La Rochelle, Roanne, Blois, Épinal, Épernay, Nevers, Vannes, Arcachon, etc.).

Conversion premium

You can now partially finance its purchase by scrapping your old diesel or petrol car. The conversion bonus previously reserved for the purchase of an electric vehicle has been extended to electrically assisted bicycles (VAE) since July 26, 2021. In addition, the bicycle bonus has been extended to “cargo” bicycles. Provided for in the “Climate and Resilience” bill, these provisions are detailed in a decree published in the Official Journal on July 25, 2021, which thus includes aid of up to 40% of the purchase price, with a ceiling set at €1,500 under conditions.

The ecological bonus for non-taxable persons

For people with modest resources (reference tax income per unit less than or equal to €13,489), the State has set up an electric bike bonus. The payment of this subsidy is conditional on obtaining local aid: its amount will be identical to the latter within the limit of €200. Saint-Etienne la Métropole offers as such a subsidy of €200 for taxable persons and €100 for those who are eligible for the State ecological bonus, so that the addition of the two also reaches €200.
