VDA statement on the agreement between the European Commission

Berlin, 01 December 2016

“In the VDA’s view, some questions remain unanswered even after the compromise reached by Berlin and Brussels. For example, it is still unclear to what extent the toll will actually generate any significant additional revenue. Legal disputes with neighboring European states should be avoided. The rules introduced must ensure that as announced there will be no extra burdens on for German drivers. The planned increased vehicle tax relief for Euro 6 passenger cars is welcome. This could create additional incentives for replacing the fleet with more ecological vehicles.”
