How do European governments intend to support the demand of passenger cars?

In light of the various COVID-19 imposed lockdowns across Europe, all of the manufacturing plants and most of the dealer sites were closed.
Some OEM’s developed or enhanced their respective online purchase processes (such as PSA or Volvo).
Despite these initiatives there was still a significant reduction in new passenger cars registrations.

In the 5 major markets in Western Europe, the automotive industry is a strategic, industrial sector of their respective economies. That is why their governments have decided to support large stimulus plan in order to boost production and sales of vehicles with a strong focus on electric vehicles.
