Slovenia looks kindly on low-CO2 cars
The Slovenian cabinet decided on March 18 to waive vehicle purchase tax on cars producing under 110 grams of carbon dioxide (CO2) per kilometre. A finance ministry spokesperson said this was a first step in introducing incentives for low-pollution vehicles. Slovenian vehicle tax normally ranges from 1%-13% of puchase price. The new threshold is even lower than the EU's target of average 120 g/km CO2 from new vehicles by 2010. More than 600,000 vehicles meeting this target were sold in the EU-15 in 2002 (EED 12/02/04).
