More than 30 % of the quota will have already been distributed since the entry into force on the 1st June in the framework of the support plan for the automobile. What to give a little hope to the Conseil national des professions de l'automobile (CNPA).

" of Between 60 000 and 65 000 premiums have been awarded at the June 25 ", said the NFPC, greeting a success, in a press release.

This last resulted in an average rate of 10 000 premiums a week before the object of increasingly severe restrictions in July 2019, " said the organization which represents 142 000 companies in the services to the automotive dealers.

The NFPC, which considers the sector as "very fragile and the market prospects are highly uncertain" is working with the government on the terms of the next premium to the conversion, which will take the result of the current system ". A more sustainable system, but that will probably have less incentive than the current operation at this time. It is, therefore, not delay to take a decision, if you enter in the field of application of the measure.

He considers " indispensable to maintain an aid to target social and ecological, in keeping with the current scope of eligible vehicles, while adjusting the amounts and targeting priority households ".
