What is the Electric Vehicle Toll Incentive scheme (EVTI)?

The Electric Vehicle Toll Incentive (EVTI) is part of the Irish Government’s investment strategy for supporting the uptake of electric vehicles in Ireland.

From June 2018, electric vehicle owners will see a reduction in tolling costs on some Irish toll roads. The incentive hopes to encourage more road users to consider electric vehicles.

How do I qualify for the scheme?

Your vehicle will qualify for the scheme if it is:

  • A Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) or a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) with CO2 emissions of 80gm per KM or less.
  • Registered Tag Account
  • An EU registered vehicle
  • An electric motorcycle or van (where the gross weight does not exceed 3,500)
  • A small Public Service car, like taxis, will be considered as a private vehicle under this scheme.

Conventional Hybrid Vehicles, i.e those that cannot be plugged in, are unfortunately not covered, so double check before you sign the dotted line.

How much do I save?

How you save depends on the type of vehicle you have and the times at which you use the toll. Please refer to the below details on your savings.
