Major Developments in 2022

Strategies and Policies

The promotion of electric mobility is a multisectoral and multidisciplinary challenge in Spain, involving local, regional and General State administrations. To accelerate EV development, on June 15, 2022, the Government created a governance group for the deployment of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (GTIRVE) in which Sectoral associations and administrations at different levels are represented. The main objective of the group is to identify barriers hindering the deployment of public access charging infrastructure and to propose measures to accelerate this deployment. In the regulatory field, measures have been developed to reduce administrative barriers to the deployment of charging infrastructure, as well as measures to facilitate a significant deployment of infrastructure both in service stations and in non-residential car parks.

Incentives Programs to promote EVs

In keeping continuity with previous editions of the MOVES Program, on April 14, 2021, the Council of Ministers published Royal Decree 266/2021, MOVES III. MOVES III establishes direct grant amounts to the different regions within the framework of the European Recovery and Resilience Facility, initially endowed with €400 million—with the potential to be increased up to €1.2 million at the request of regional administrations. The program will be open to applications until December 31, 2023, and is aimed at incentivizing the purchase of electric vehicles and the deployment of charging infrastructure for these vehicles.


Spain has the objective of climate neutrality in the transport sector by 2050, with an intermediate objective of fully decarbonising the Spanish market of new cars and vans by 2040, according to the key target of a progressive decarbonising of the economy. In this way, PNIEC establishes an objective to have 5 million electric vehicles (cars, vans, busses, and motorbikes) on road by 2030. A large number of these will be used in car-sharing platforms, which means around 16% of the current Spanish fleet will be in this category. This implies an accumulated energy savings of 3,524.2 kt for the period 2021-2030, representing a 25% share of the total energy savings expected for the transport sector (13.888 kt) in that period. It is estimated that in 2025 a price parity will be reached for EVs compared to conventional vehicles, so from 2025 onwards, it will not be necessary to give any more public funding for EVs.
