These cars are eligible for Italy's EV incentives

Italy has ratified a comprehense EV subvention programme that implies bonuses up to €6,000 for zero-to-low-emission cars until December 31, 2021. Not only consumers, but also companies can apply for an incentive towards the purchase or leasing of a green car. 

There are two categories: 0-20 g/km - basically only battery-electric vehicles - and 21-70 g/km - which actually only comprises plug-in hybrids. Regular hybrids, like the ones built by Toyota and Hyundai, exceed the threshold. Fleet Europe has made a list of the cars that are sponsored by the Italian State:
