How long shall enjoy E-vehicles privileges? Unlike cars with petrol or diesel they are not subject to the fuel tax – that tax, so that accounts for about half the price of Petrol and the Federal government helps to Finance the construction and maintenance of national roads.
The question arises even more, as vehicles with conventional drive is always more efficient and the revenue from the mineral oil tax already sinking. In addition, the Park of the purely electrically powered vehicles is growing, last year there were close to 30’000.
electric cars today are multiple preferred
in order for no funding gap, will the FDP act-councillor Damian Müller now. All modes of transport, the pay date, no mineral oil tax, shall contribute to the financing of the road infrastructure. Of vehicles with hydrogen propulsion would be affected, for example. The Federal Council must present Parliament with an appropriate template.

But when the E-levy is coming, seems more uncertain than ever. Was planned: originally, 2020. The Federal roads office (Astra) announced in 2018, however, it will 2022. The entire Federal Council, however, does not want to set, apparently, on a specific date. In a response to a parliamentary proposal, he spoke last year of a "later" than 2020.

Existing taxes should be replaced by a performance-related charge. May, the Federal Council will integrate the E-tax, this new levy. However, it is questionable whether such a Mobility-Pricing the majority will be capable and the policy around the normal way of it for years. The E-tax would be caught in a political loop.

Ultimately the decision is up to the Parliament: For the introduction of E-tax, it needs a law.
