Will drivers of combustion cars have to dig much deeper into their pockets in the future?

At least that's what the government's alleged considerations envisage.

The EU-wide ban on combustion engines has not even been properly decided yet, the federal government is said to be working on

further tightening

for cars with petrol or diesel engines.

The federal cabinet is said to be dealing with the question of whether conventional cars should be taxed more heavily than before.

This is reported by the "Handelsblatt".

Economical cars should therefore be relieved, and

electric cars could even receive a bonus

.

The level of motor vehicle tax is already

linked to carbon dioxide emissions

, while newly registered electric vehicles with batteries or hydrogen are exempt from this tax for ten years.

The background to the considerations is apparently the fact that new cars that emit climate-damaging emissions are to be banned from 2035 - the

stock of petrol engines.

are not touched.

Tax rewards and penalties could be an effective means of persuading as many drivers as possible to adopt electromobility before the deadline.

However, it is still completely open

what the alleged advice will actually mean to the driver in practice

The financial support for electric cars, which the Federal Minister of Finance and combustion engine fan Christian Lindner (43, FDP) questions, could turn out to be a point of contention.
