Pay according to use: the car industry wants to charge frequent drivers with road pricing

The interest groups today present a plan for car tax reform to the informateur and all political parties. “The current tax system is complex, inhibits greening and makes the market erratic,” they say. “And that makes the car buyer wait-and-see.” Because there is of course also a commercial interest in the plans of the Bovag and RAI. More cars need to be sold.

Contributing to achieving the climate goals

But ‘green’ cars, of course. Because according to the coalition, the mobility sector must contribute to achieving the climate targets for 2030. The partnership therefore asks the political parties to integrate the presented plan into the formation discussions. But what exactly are those plans?

Mileage tax based on CO2 emissions

The current car tax system must be replaced as soon as possible by pay-as-you-go (a kilometer charge), where the rate per kilometer is based on the CO2 emissions of the vehicle. The introduction of road pricing takes a minimum of 8.5 years, so it cannot play a role in the CO2 reduction for 2030.

Stimulating the influx of electric cars

That is why the collaborating parties are also coming up with plans for the transition period 2022 – 2030. This states, among other things, that the influx of electric cars must be stimulated as much as possible, that people with (financial) incentives must be encouraged to change their purchasing and travel behavior. and that the use of biofuels and synthetic fuels should be expanded.
