Private individuals can apply for up to Ft 90,000 as a state subsidy for a pedal assist sensor e-bike and Ft 150,000 for a torque sensor e-bike.
The grant can cover a maximum of half the purchase price.
The government is aiming to help commuters, so applicants should also attach employment details.
None of the subsidised e-bikes may cost more than Ft 900,000.
The 1 billion allocation will support the purchase of more than 7,000 e-bikes, according to Máriusz Révész, Government Commissioner for an Active Hungary.
