Italy bonus-malus

Last updated: 25 June 2020

Under a new amendment to the 2019 budget, anyone purchasing a new car in Italy between 2019 and 2021 can benefit from incentives of up to €6,000 if they choose a model that emits 90 grams of carbon dioxide or less per kilometre.

Meanwhile drivers who purchase more polluting cars, defined as those that produce 160 grams of CO2 per kilometre or more, will face a new so-called "eco-tax" starting at €1100 and rising to €2500 for the worst offenders.
