For German car owners the introduction of the new WLTP test cycle may be expensive! People at the new carwow purchase platform have calculated that, above all, small petrol car owners will have to pay significantly higher taxes than they have before. In Germany, the tax rate is set on the basis of engine engine volume and carbon dioxide emissions. Where these emissions exceed 95 g / km, each additional gram shall be paid two additional Euros.
With the introduction of a more realistic methodology for assessing WLTP, CO2 values for new cars on paper are jumping dramatically. Carwow registered a 20% increase over the old NEFZ methodology. Same partner and the Union of Automobile Manufacturers in Germany (VDA). It turns out that the carbon dioxide emitted in some models is bouncing boldly. According to carwow data, the increase in Skoda Fabia Combi 1.0 TSI is the most serious - 141 percent. Second, the Nissan Micra 1.0 comes with 114 percent and the third Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid 1.6 GDi with 96. That's why the Germans, drivers of the Fabia version, will have to pay 68 instead of the current 28 euros and the owners Micra 1.0 - 77 instead of 36 euros.
