The motor vehicle tax will apply to new registrations from January 1, 2021.
This measure is more oriented towards CO2 emissions. Tax rates of 2 to 4 euros per gram per kilometre (km) are planned for first registrations, which should apply in the range of more than 95 to 195 grams of CO2 per km.
This measure also strengthens electromobility, with a ten-year tax exemption (until 2030) for all electric vehicles registered in the next five years.
In order to relieve the financial burden on small and medium-sized businesses, a burdensome special regulation will be abolished for certain light commercial vehicles up to 3.5 tons.
