Moving to Luxembourg? A story about...
Simône van Schouwenburg, Head of Expat Services at Spuerkeess gives you a unique insight into the experiences she has made. Advantages, challenges...
At present, we clearly see greater demand for gasoline-powered cars. This change is probably due to the thought process or awareness of consumers with respect to their vehicle usage and lifestyle.
Sales of purely electric vehicles are still relatively low and represent around 3% of our sales
However, demand for hybrid vehicles is significantly on the rise. Our salespeople have received special training on the different types of engines, in order to better advise customers who are interested in these cars, as well as pinpoint their needs better and propose suitable models to them.
Most hybrid vehicles we offer are relatively costly, and although the tax rebates are a significant advantage, this type of purchase is based mainly on a choice made by the consumer. However, we regularly receive this type of question. As mentioned before, our team members have been trained to answer all these questions.
The Autofestival is the main automotive event in Luxembourg and is a real tradition. It is during this period of time that brands offer the biggest discounts and we make our biggest sales of the year.
The Autofestival is not only synonymous with special conditions on the various brands and models, but it also offers an attractive package for purchasing a vehicle. Insurance providers make efforts, and financial institutions in particular offer extremely favourable special rates and conditions for obtaining personal loans.
In order to promote zero-emission vehicles, certain banks, notably Spuerkeess, even offer additional reductions in the base rate, which can provide further incentive to purchase this type of vehicle.
