Around 70 percent of new cars sold, including hybrid, electric and fuel-cell vehicles, currently qualify for the tax cut.

I wonder which of the new cars sold are not eco-cars then. As a matter of interest, do foreign makes qualify? Is it a stupid question?

Yes for example Tesla.You buy one,register on your name use one year than may get subsidy from jpn gov/not guaranteed you may get some cash back/.

Just wondering what will happen if BYD will start sell own EV here next month and if jpn gov will apply same rule for their EVs so will put Nissan Leaf in big disadvantage abt total cost...dont need to mention japanese "love" towards China these days...and japanese mindset when korean /and highly likely chinese /EVs will be largely ignored by public unless prices will be not low end ones...

This doesn't help to motivate Japanese automakers from switching to EVs.

Remember, hybrids are banned in EU countries and US states going 100% Zero Emission by 2035.

Nothing. Japanese consumers are deeply mistrustful of Chinese and Korean brands and won't touch them.

The problem for Japanese automakers isn't Japan, but the US CARB states and EU, where Japanese brand automobiles are likely to go extinct after ICE ban in 2035, Japanese auto brands at that point follow the footsteps of Japanese electronics brands.

Japan have no efficient network for EV charging stations yest,dont need to mention have lack of capacity for E energy supply.

So here is nothing to be hurry for turning away from petrol or diesel powered cars.

Japanese cars are most wanted abroad these months and days and shipments are all time high so I have no idea what you are talking about.

For example Toyota-I am pretty sure will not follow "footsteps of Japanese electronic brands" anytime soon...

New car sales of ICE vehicles will be phased out from 2030 onwards, but there will be millions of older vehicles on the roads for years to come.

Will we still get tax breaks even if we buy a secondhand car eco-friendly car, I wonder?

Such tax cuts should be eliminated. Japan is broke and cannot afford them.
