What are the arrangements for renting or maintaining a vehicle?

Today, the automobile is often an essential tool for meeting daily needs. Whether going to work, driving kids to school, or running errands, it can be difficult to get around without a vehicle.
But buying a car is a big investment, and people with the lowest incomes are faced with an expense that they cannot budget for. In some cases, it may be better to consider renting or even lending a vehicle.
Aid exists for the purchase of a car . Some are set up by the government. This is the conversion premium or the ecological bonus. In addition to these government grants, you can also benefit from assistance to buy a car from local associations and initiatives . These vary according to the territories.
Continue reading this article, you will find the list of aid for the purchase of a car or the rental with option to purchase (LOA) of a new or used vehicle, as well as local or associative initiatives to accompany you in your car trips.
This involves replacing your passenger car or petrol or diesel van with a low-emission vehicle . Your old vehicle is then destined for scrap. This premium applies for the purchase or rental with option of purchase (LOA) of an electric vehicle, private car or van, 2 wheels, 3 wheels or quadricycle.
This aid concerns vehicles intended for destruction registered before 2001 for a diesel car (2006 if the applicant is non-taxable) and registered before 1997 for a petrol car.
If your current vehicle is eligible for the scrapping bonus, the premium is determined by the type of vehicle purchased or rented, your tax situation at N-2 (2018 for purchase in 2020) as well as the mileage to get to your place of work. In 2020, the amount of the premium varies from € 1,000 to € 5,000 . This aid can be combined with the ecological bonus.

Help with the purchase of a new electric car: The ecological bonus

This government assistance is intended for adults over the age of France. The purchase or rental with option to purchase must relate to a new electric vehicle (private car, van, 2 wheels, 3 wheels or quadricycle) registered in France.
For the purchase of a car or van , the amount of this premium is 27% of the vehicle's inclusive price. This aid is capped at € 6,000.
For the purchase of a motorized vehicle with 2, 3 wheels or quadricycle , the amount of the bonus varies from 20% (or € 100) to 27% (or € 900) of the price including VAT depending on the power of the engine, plus or less 3kWh.
For the purchase of an electric bicycle , state aid comes in addition to local aid and the sum of the two premiums is the lower of the following two amounts: 20% of the purchase price including tax or 200 €.
If the dealer does not advance the amount of the ecological bonus to you by deducting it from the purchase price, it is up to you to request it online . This aid can be combined with the conversion bonus if you are eligible.

Brands that offer discounts to large families

Next, we are going to know some of the offers that brands make for the purchase of vehicles by large families. However, these discounts may vary depending on when you want to buy the car. So, the best thing is to ask the brand if there is any offer at the time of purchase, if they have varied or if they are no longer available directly. These can help you with the hardship grants from government.

Opel , for example, offers discounts on all its models that vary between 1% and 10%. However, they are usually cumulative to the campaigns in force at the time of purchase, so they can be very beneficial.

Mercedes-Benz is another of the brands that have discounts of up to 16% in the V-Class and in the Vito.

Volkswagen also offers interesting discounts on its larger vehicles, such as Transporter, Caravelle or Multivan, which can reach 20% savings. In addition, in passenger cars they offer offers of 10% not cumulative other promotions.

Ssangyong offers up to € 500 additional discount to any government aid that is requested. In addition, it can also be accumulated to promotional offers on its Rexton and Rodius models, among others.

Both Jaguar and Land Rover , both from the same company, offer up to 11% discount on the XE model and 9% on others such as the XF and F-PACE in any version. In addition, if we opt for SUVs, we find an 8% offer in Discovery and Discovery Sport and in others such as Evoque or Range Rover.

The Dacia house offers € 500 discount after the purchase of the Lodgy, something that can be added to specific offers and promotions.

If we look at the classic Fiat , we see that they offer discounts of between 13% and 25% depending on the model, but you can choose the entire 500 range, the Panda, the Freemont, the Linea, the Sedici and the Punto. Of course, in this case, these offers cannot be combined with others that the company presents at the specific time of purchase.

Lancia is another brand that offers up to 16% discount on some units in its Voyager range. In addition, add to this benefit a first and second maintenance review of those that are scheduled by the house to be passed free of charge.

Another brand that presents good offers for large families is the classic Renault . In the French house you can opt for up to € 1,500 discount on the purchase of the Espace model and up to € 1,000 on the Grand Escenic and Traffic that can be accumulated with other offers and discounts of the brand at the time of purchase.

This is a short list, but it is always interesting to ask, as each brand offers its own conditions. Look at your trusted dealer and don't miss out on your vehicle purchase without your help. Every euro you save is money you will have for your family and your children, do not forget it.

Now that you know what offers and discounts you can get when buying a new car with a large family, you only have to know, depending on your city and region and what brand you want, what you can benefit from ... And get down to work. Happy driving, family!
