Cypress: Plan to link road tax to emissions agreed by lawmakers

A new policy on linking the road tax to emissions has been agreed by legislators, who will be tabling a bill to the House plenum on March 1.

Under the new regime, the road tax payable will be as follows: vehicles with carbon dioxide emissions less than 120g per kilometre, €0.5 per gramme; 120 to 150 g/km, €3 per gramme; 150 to 180g/km, €5 per gramme; and over 180g/km, €10 per gramme.

Road taxes will also feature an additional fee depending on which emissions standard a vehicle complies with.
