They propose an additional tax for electric cars to make up for the damage to roads in the United Kingdom

He Electric Car It is completely unknown at the future stage fiscal, since these types of vehicles are currently exempt from taxes in Spain, there is already talk that sooner than later, they may have their own taxes. in fact, in United Kingdom just proposed additional tax for electric cars, considering that damage the roads,

Thus, a group of experts Center for Policy Studies (CPS) Did United Kingdom, He has proposed creating a pay-per-use tax for electric cars, as they cause more damage to roads than one with a conventional thermal engine, all because of their added weight.

Thus, this group of experts proposes that this tax be levied on the basis of usage, that is, the owner will have to pay one or the other amount depending on the number of kilometers travelled.

Admittedly, this is an initiative that has not been well received among British drivers, and has therefore generated a great deal of debate in that country.

but it is that mussel It has also been suggested that the new tax also applies to hybrid and combustion cars, despite the fact that these types of vehicles will be banned from being sold in Europe from 2035.

These experts have indicated that the British government should activate this tax on electric cars, and do so by promising that the proceeds go entirely to improving the national highway network.

This body has come to this conclusion based on the fact that an electric car is heavier than a combustion car with similar characteristics, as the extra weight mainly comes from the battery, which is why experts say it is more likely to hit the pavement.
