Description:From 1 January 2000 the registration fee for cars has been changed in order to incentivise new energy efficient vehicles. The Danish Parliament reduced the registration tax for such cars (both gasoline and diesel) consuming less than 4 litre/100 km for gasoline cars and less than 3.6 litre/100 km for diesel cars. The reduction in the registration tax varies from 1/6 to 4/6 of the existing fee. In connection with this decision, the scale of the annual "green owner fee" for diesel cars has also been expanded. From 1 January 2000, another 4 categories have been added to the green owner fee, and the lowest tax category is now for diesel cars which consume less than 3,1 litres per 100 kilometres.
