New tax may be imposed on electric cars

Electric vehicles Due to new regulations, they have several advantages over combustion systems, especially in cities where they are subject to less severe laws when parking or driving through restricted areas For “durable vehicles” only. However, we find that in some places they are already thinking of levying tax for these cars.

This is a proposal

The proposal comes from the Center for Policy Studies (CPS). Corresponding to the UK Conservative Party. This proposal is placed in a “Think Tank”. It is defined as “a group of experts of an investigative nature and of a multidisciplinary nature for intellectual reflection and proposal of ideas about public policies”.

What is included in this offer?

This includes removing tax for electric cars. With this, these vehicles must pay for the miles traveled in a month. That’s because EV cars, which weigh more than combustion cars, damage roads more quickly, according to British officials.

From there, they confirm that the weight of electric cars, which is higher than that of combustion cars, can worsen road conditions.

However, and contrary to their argument, they believe that this tax could be eliminated on gasoline and diesel cars, Which makes the proposition completely meaningless.

With what intention is this done?

As he himself admitted, The fact that the sale of combustion cars has been banned until 2030 means that less money comes in due to taxes on fuel sold at gas stations and so on. To recover these losses, they have to adopt regulations to continue collecting.

The RAC’s head of road policy, Nicolas Lais, commented on the legislation that “as more electric vehicles hit our roads, revenue from fuel taxes and vehicle excise duty will be reduced, so it is inevitable that a new system will be developed”. is to be done.


eventually With these adaptations they will ensure that the car is only used at specific moments And necessary and become, as we have been saying, a luxury item and for a life in which money is not a major concern.

We’ll see if this law ultimately goes through, but if it does, it could set a very dangerous precedent for other European regions to follow. That they will certainly see it as a good idea to continue collecting money from drivers through absurd taxes, regardless of whether they pollute or not and the age of the vehicles they own, as in this case.
