More than a third (37.4%) of cars for sale in Portugal will get even more expensive with the socialist proposal
More gasoline cars to rise in price than down with the proposal of PS change of vehicle tax (ISV). Calculations of ANECRA indicate that more than one third (37.4%) of cars for sale in Portugal will get even more expensive, which exceeds the price decline seen over a quarter (27.9%) of the units available by marks. One example is the Dacia Duster, in version 1.6 diesel with 115 horses. With 155 grams of carbon dioxide (CO2), shall pay an additional 1.2% of ISV with the socialist amendment to OE 2016. There are over 51 euros between the State Budget 2016 delivered by the Government and the socialist proposal.
The reverse side we have the Audi A1 1.0 turbo, petrol, with 95 horses and CO2 emissions of 97 grams. The reduction is significant percentage of 10.5%. But in the final accounts are only 27 euros less in face-to-face between the PS and the Government proposal.
The Socialists want a reduction in the ISV at the lowest level, up to 99 grams of carbon dioxide (CO2), from 5.10 to 4 euros, according to the document tabled in Parliament. It is also revised down the amount of the portion to be slaughtered, the 450 to 370 euros.
“This change is intended to benefit the most efficient vehicles from the point of view of CO2 emissions, for the most polluting,” justified in note socialists. “It promotes more sustainable from an environmental point of view, also is contributing to the reduction of emissions to combat climate change context,” adds the document to which the Mad Money had access.
The automobile industry associations is that they are not at all satisfied with the proposal. “It is a sophisticated way to increase revenue in the most polluting cars with the decline in car less displacement. It is demagogic “, attacks Jorge Neves da Silva, the ANECRA.
“There are no major changes. We had requested a correction in the cylinder component and the maintenance of incentives to electric car purchase, which were not heard, “lamented Hélder Pedro, the ACAP.
The OE 2016 report indicates that “are reviewed ISV rates with an upgrade component cylinder by 3% and increases the environmental component of 10% to 20% (with a relief for less car pollution) in order to strengthen the role tax as an incentive for the purchase of less polluting vehicles. ”
The state, with these changes in the ISV, aims to raise 70 million additional euros for 2016, according to the document sent on 5 February by Finance Minister Mario Centeno, vice president of the European Commission Valdis Dombrovskis and the European Commissioner for Economic Affairs Pierre Moscovici. This is one of the “structural measures” sent to Brussels in the negotiations for the state budget.
