Brussels, 24 April 2019 – New data released today shows that motor vehicle taxation brings in €428 billion per year to governments in the EU-15 countries alone. This figure – up 3.5% compared with the previous year – represents more than two and a half times the total EU budget.

The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) published this data in the 2019 edition of its Tax Guide. This annual report contains the latest information about taxes on vehicle acquisition (VAT, sales tax, registration tax), vehicle ownership (annual circulation tax, road tax) and motoring (fuel tax) in the European Union and other key markets around the world.

The 2019 report shows major differences in tax levels across the EU. Regarding the basis of taxation, some member states still tax cars on their power, price, weight, cylinder capacity or a combination of these factors. Increasingly, however, countries are applying CO2-based taxation. According to the new Guide, 21 EU member states now tax motor vehicles based on their CO2 emission levels.
