CO2 taxes: zoom on the 2019 scales

Several taxes are intended to encourage motorists to buy less polluting cars: CO2 tax, ecological malus and annual tax on the most polluting vehicles. Here are all the details on the 2019 scales.

Ecological malus: the scale hardens

The ecological penalty is a tax on CO2 emitted by new motor vehicles. It is paid at the time of registration, either directly from the dealer, or in addition to the payment of the tax on the registration certificate on the ANTS website. To promote the purchase of less polluting vehicles , the scale of the ecological penalty has been reinforced: the trigger threshold of the penalty is lowered each year. By way of comparison, the threshold for triggering the malus was 120 g of CO2 / km in 2018, with a penalty of 50 €. For the year 2019, the Finance Act has fixed the following scale (for vehicles which have been the subject of a Community approval):

  • rate lower than or equal to 116 g of CO2 / km: 0 € of penalty;
  • 117 g of CO2 / km: 35 € of penalty;
