As Austrian e-bike sales crack the 200,000 units barrier for the first time, the government is increasing purchase premiums and subsidies for charging infrastructure, zero-emission and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
“The subsidy rates for electric two-wheelers, including e-bikes will also be increased for private individuals from 400 to 850 euros for electric bicycles.” as stated in this article.
“The purchase of at least five electric bicycles will also be supported for companies, municipalities and associations. The VAT rate for bicycle repair services was also already reduced from 20 to 10 percent at the beginning of the year”, as stated here.

Depending on your region, you can benefit from lump-sum compensation as well as taxes advantages and a bonus for the purchase of a bicycle, between 20 to 40% of the purchase price including VAT (40% for unemployed citizens) with ceilings depending on the type of bike.

French residents can benefit both from local and national help. Some conditions are needed and they are all listed here but if you want to buy a new e-bike that doesn’t contain a lead acid battery you should be able to accumulate both bonuses (up to 500 euros in total). The state's ecological bonus can be paid in addition to people with modest incomes, up to a limit of 200 euros.
In concrete terms this means: you must first benefit from a local aid for the purchase of a VAE to also receive the ecological bonus. The national aid does not replace the local aid, but completes it to allow the beneficiaries to obtain a more interesting amount. You can find more details about this offer here.

Despite Germans being huge aficionados of bikes, the current status for subsidies from the government varies depending on which federated states you live in.
We would recommend you to check your city hall or regional office as well as their website before purchasing your e-bike to make sure that there aren’t any new programs or current grants allocated to this.

Because electric bikes can transform both our cities and our lives, the UK Government has agreed upon a Cycle to Work scheme, which allocates employees to buy an e-bike at a discount, provided that it is used for commuting to work.
This scheme is available only to those in work, whose employer registers with the scheme, and whose main use is for daily travel to their workplace. It is not available to those who are self-employed, mature students, job-seekers or to retired people; it also excludes people new to cycling, or who do not wish to go to work by bike, as we can see here.
