|Climate Change Description:|
A bonus malus system for new light vehicles, with effect from 1 July 2018. The main motive is to increase the proportion of environmentally adapted vehicles with lower CO2 emissions. The bonus malus system here can complement the more generally active fuel taxes and help reduce the transport sector's oil dependence and climate impact. The bonus malus system only affects new passenger cars class I and II, light buses and light trucks. The existing fleet of vehicles is therefore not affected by the proposal and receives an unchanged vehicle tax when the bonus malus system is introduced. The fact that existing vehicles are not proposed to receive any tax increase is a difference to previously submitted proposals.
The proposal includes the following changes for vehicles covered by the bonus malus system:
Given the uncertainty surrounding the effects of the EU's new World Wide Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), the Government believes that the old European Driving Cycle (NEDC) should be the basis for vehicle taxation within the bonus malus system under a transitional period. On January 1, 2020, a transition to WLTP will take place. Then you can adjust the levels so that at least the same environmental management is maintained.
