Incentives for citizens 

Helsinki wants to support its residents in a variety of ways towards more sustainable forms of mobility. In recent years, the city has increased the means to concretely encourage residents to move in a low-emission manner. The government also offers various financial incentives, for example, for the purchase of a low-emission car and for charging points.  

On this page, you will find compiled incentives for electronic and low-emission mobility for your daily life.
