The echoes. “The objective is to avoid the double penalty”, explains a government source. “Data-reactid =” 19 “> Thursday, October 15, the government announced the establishment of a new automobile tax on the weight of cars. An announcement that was received rather coldly from the side of car manufacturers. So, in an attempt to make them swallow the pill, an amendment has just been tabled to extend the time limit for the implementation of the tightening of the car penalty scale, report The echoes. “The objective is to avoid double punishment”, explains a government source.

Clearly, this amendment, tabled this Friday to the finance bill for 2021, plans to spread over three years instead of two years the hardening of the scale on CO2 emissions. If today, a penalty applies when purchasing a vehicle emitting more than 138 grams of CO2 per kilometer, the scale will tighten, but less quickly than expected. The citizens’ convention for the climate had called for this threshold to be reduced to 123 grams of CO2 per kilometer from 2022. This should not be the case. The government amendment specifies that the penalty will apply in 2021 to vehicles emitting more than 133 grams, in 2022 the threshold will increase to 128 grams. And it is only in 2023 that it will be set at 123 grams, detail Les Échos.

“If the objective of a reduction of 15 grams of CO2 recommended by the Citizen’s Climate Convention is consistent with the environmental objectives, its implementation over two years, in addition to the mass component, would induce an increase in taxation too brutal for the vehicles concerned. It would thus run the risk of not allowing manufacturers and households to adapt and being considered too punitive “, the government justifies itself.
