What is more important: the E-mobility or all drivers be treated equally? The question arises, at the latest, since the people two years ago, the national road and agglomeration funds (NAF) has been approved. And thus the introduction of E-tax.
Today, E-cars to use the roads and pay nothing except for the highway vignette, unlike petrol and diesel cars, which make their contribution in addition, via the mineral oil tax and its surcharge in the price of petrol. Thus, the Federal government wants to increase the attractiveness of E-mobility. This privilege, however, is limited in time. The E-tax is coming in 2022, two years later than originally planned; so, Jürg Röthlisberger, the Director of the Federal office for roads (Astra) it had, last November, announced.
Astra of the year, call number, Federal Council
The overall Federal Council, however, does not want to commit to a specific date. In its response to an Interpellation of the national Council Jean-Luc Addor (SVP) he speaks only of a "later" than 2020. The influence of the new transport Minister Simonetta Sommaruga, whose party, the SP, a "rapid electrification of the mobility on the road" calls is shown here? The response from your Department, the Detec: no, Sommaruga had not expressed to the business.
so, Astra-Director Röthlisberger forged ahead? The Astra disagrees: "The decision was, and is, a political one." It was clear that the introduction will take place after 2020. Not that it took long, therefore, the Astra was at work, "so that the business of our page is prepared as far as necessary, if the political decision is pending". The Federal Council will submit to the Parliament at the appropriate time, the implementation provisions on the legislative level.
The output should be directed, according to Astra, according to the weight of the car and about 500 Swiss francs for two tons. A Tesla driver would come in with his heavy equipment on the full amount, a driver of a mid-sized car at slightly more than half.
share of E-cars in the new cars
boost thing is for Sure: The Federal government is seeking, together with the cantons, municipalities, the auto industry and other stakeholders, that by 2022, 15 percent of the new cars E-cars. Whether this succeeds, but is not sure. Last year 9500 new plug-in vehicles, so electric cars and Plug were enrolled-in Hybrids, which are at the 300'000 new car – only 3 percent. These comparatively meagre interim balance sheet is also the reason why the Federal Council is called, no year: "The levy should only be introduced if the market increased penetration of such vehicles substantially." Financially, the Federal Council, this wait lasts for justifiable, because the money is not sufficient in the NAF for the road infrastructure until 2023, and until then even the theoretically possible petrol price increase of 4 cents per litre is necessary.
The car industry is behind the Plan of the Federal Council. "As a start-up support for electric mobility, the current waiver of the E-car-tax is in order", says Andreas Burgener, Director of Auto-Schweiz. A flat-rate E-car-tax would work in his view "counter-productive". The auto industry does not want to promote the sales of E-cars, because from 2020 onwards, more stringent climate targets will apply: a vehicle is allowed to shoot an average of only 95 grams of CO2 per kilometre; last year there were around 138 grams.
Without the E-vehicles that qualify as Zero-emission vehicles can not reach the industry, this preference's own calculations according to: It to million heavy Fines threaten. Against this Background, car calls-Switzerland: The Federal government is allowed to introduce the E-delivery only, if the auto import can comply with your thanks in part to the increased sale of E-cars to the more stringent CO2 limit of 95 grams per kilometre with no penalty.
E-car Lobby open for introduction to 2022
The electric mobility, the Swiss Association of E-Mobility, in turn, requires that the Federal government should put the E-submission at the earliest, in the case of a new car share of 15 percent in power. This objective should remain in place until 2022 unmatched, and the income from the mineral oil to remain expensive Supplement in the NAF-pot more or less stable, you can imagine the President and the GLP-chief Jürg Grossen, "well, that is the introduction of the E-is pushed levy to continue to the rear". Still further, the SP's: In a position paper, the party of Minister of transport, Sommaruga proposes as a possible threshold for the imposition of the charge an E-car share of new cars by 40 percent.
