State Budget 2024, Car Taxes |  Sudden changes to car taxes for 2024

2024 is the last year in which, according to politicians’ goals, gasoline and diesel cars can be sold in Norway. In 2025, the goal is for all car sales to be electric.

Due to the EEA Agreement, it would not be possible to enforce the ban. Instead, politicians should make it undesirable to buy anything other than electric cars, something everyone is avoiding.

In practice, this means hefty fees. This carries the 2024 budget no fingerprint. If anything, electric cars fare worse than petrol and diesel cars.

The government is not proposing any major tax changes to regular passenger cars, beyond the usual price increase. In addition, the weight discount for hybrid cars, which is currently 10 percent, will be eliminated. As a result, there is the potential for a huge tax change in next year’s budget.

Note that this is for the government suggestion To budget the new state. They must agree with SV in negotiations. Historically, the EV Association and SV have had close relationships. There is reason to believe that SV will push for changes to the proposal during the negotiations.

– Puts our trust in SV

Norway’s largest car importer is relieved that the government is not proposing tougher taxes on electric cars, but is disappointed that good solutions have not been found to electrify the company car and rental car market.

The majority of people who buy new fossil fuel cars today are buyers of company cars, car rental companies, or car sharing companies. There is no indication that this state budget will change that. “We have to put our trust in SV,” says Ulf Tore Hickenby, Managing Director of Harald A. Møller AS, in a survey.

He adds:

– These are fossil fuel-powered cars that will be on Norwegian roads for years, so we are missing clearer steps that would push the much-needed technological change forward as quickly as possible.
