An electric car pays about 680 euros less taxes a year than a conventional one

The taxes derived from the use of an electric vehicle (VE) is only 72 euros per year, compared to 754 euros collected by a gasoline car or 535 euros from a diesel car, which supposes a reduction for public coffers of up to 681 euros per year for each electric car.

This is clear from a study by the ENT Foundation published on the portal of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, which measures the average taxation of diesel, gasoline and electric cars
according to the taxes derived from its use.

In particular, it takes into account the registration tax, which in the year 2017 collected 390.2 million euros, only 36% of the amount collected in the whole year 2008. This is because, like cars every time have a lower emission of polluting gases per kilometer, up to 75% was exempt from that payment.

Another tax included in the study is that of mechanical traction vehicles (circulation), which in 2016 contributed up to 2.392 million euros to public coffers. The hydrocarbons, meanwhile, entered between 10,500 and 11,000 million in recent years.

In addition to VAT, for the calculation of the taxation of electric vehicles, the study also takes into account the electricity tax, which raised 1,481 million in 2015, and the value tax produced on electric power, which that same year entered 1,656 millions of euros.

With all these data and taking into account a baseline scenario for a VE with an expenditure of 0.20 kilowatt hours (kwh) per kilometer (km), 0.07 liters / km of a diesel and 0.09 liters / km of gasoline, the average taxation of a VE would be between 463 euros and 681 euros a year below the other two internal combustion vehicles.

Thus, with the forecasts made by the Institute for Diversification and Energy Saving (IDAE) that in 2020 there will be 25 million cars, of which 10% will be electric, next year a total of 1,430 million will be collected. euros less in taxes derived from passenger cars, 8.4% less than expected if all vehicles were internal combustion. .
