Government to introduce new tax on cars

The government will introduce a new tax on cars, writes Dagens Industri. Cars with low emission rates will benefit from the new taxation system while cars releasing 95 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre will be penalty taxed. Buyers of electrical cars will receive SEK 45 000 from the government after six months of ownership. Many of Sweden’s most sold cars will thus be taxed, but this a step towards the government’s goal to achieve a fossil fuel free vehicle fleet by 2030. The tax will be implemented in the summer of 2018.
