Sustainable Transport - Motor vehicle tax for CO2 emitting vehicles / tax exemption for EVs

Last updated: 25 May 2023

The federal council approved in 2020 a motor vehicle tax to be applied to new registrations from January 1, 2021. 


Tax rates of EUR 2-4 per gram per kilometre 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 aims to strengthen electromobility, with a ten-year tax exemption (until 2030) for all electric vehicles registered in the next five years.
