VW: No longer a privilege for diesel drivers

According to this, the "diesel privilege in the mineral oil tax" is to be lifted by January 1, 2023. The tax advantage of diesel over gasoline is around 20 cents. VW also has objections to the increase in the CO2 price. This would be going much too slowly. If Volkswagen has its way, costs should rise from the current 25 euros per ton to 65 euros per ton by 2024. To compensate, the company is calling for the budget to be relieved elsewhere.

The taxation of company cars is also discussed in the paper.

VW is demanding higher taxation for company cars with internal combustion engines.

Here the Wolfsburg propose an increase to 1.25 percent.

For plug-in hybrids, too, they would like to see an increase to 0.75 percent.

E-cars, on the other hand, should continue to be taxed at 0.25 percent of the list price.

For company cars with internal combustion engines, one percent of the gross list price is currently due as tax.

VW would like the actual e-use of plug-in hybrids to be recorded

VW is proposing another change for plug-in hybrids. The electric combustion station wagon plays “an important role in the transition”, but the tax incentives for these vehicles should, according to Volkswagen, “be linked to the actual electric mileage,” reports the portal. According to this, only plug-in drivers who mainly use the car electrically should benefit from the tax relief. For this purpose, Volkswagen would like a “practical legal framework that enables the technical determination of the electric driving component”.

In addition, the paper addressed to the possible governing parties SPD *, Greens *, and FDP * still the purchase premiums for e-cars. The group advocates a more degressive design of the subsidies. The current federal government has "promised" to keep the currently applicable environmental bonus and the innovation bonus until 2025. However, Volkswagen is in favor of abolishing state e-car subsidies and ending it completely by December 31, 2025.

Finally, VW also mentions the speed limit *.

Even before the general election, the topic caused heated discussions.

The car manufacturer demands location-based speed limits.

More precisely, it says that the restriction should be introduced “where people live and the risk of accidents is reduced and the flow of traffic improved”.
