Description:On 1 January 2000, the registration fee (purchase tax) for cars was changed in order to provide more incentive to purchase new, more energy-efficient vehicles. The registration tax was reduced for fuel-efficient gasoline cars consuming less than 4 litres/100 km and for diesel cars consuming less than 3.6 litres/100 km. The reduction in the registration tax varies from 1/6 to 4/6 of the existing fee. In connection with this decision, the range of diesel cars qualifying for the annual "green owner fee" has also been expanded. On 1 January 2000, another four categories qualified for the green owner fee, and the lowest tax category is now for diesel cars which consume less than 3.1 litres/100 km
