Spreadsheet "Efficienzvergleich" linked at the bottom of this page:

Basically G is correct, but these are obviously some sort of charge band not directly related to the efficiency codes used for advertising purposes.

Just out of curiosity, how are they charging you for F & G? Is there a penalty because it's F or G?

I always thought that the tax rate was based on the weight of the car, engine size, and max towing weight. Then, if you have efficiency of A or B, you receive a discount for the first 4 years since the car's first registration.

Each canton has it own tax-criterium. If you own a Tesla S in Zürich, you don't play taxes as it's emission free. But in Zug you pay 257.-/year based on the power of the car. In Basel-Stadt you would pay over 1000.-

What a difference, that's nuts! I was actually going by what they had listed on the Thurgau website, assuming he lives in TG. In SG it seems they don't even consider the engine size, only car weight. And the discounts apply only to A and <130g/km cars (and electric cars). So B and G cars are taxed exactly the same.

0 taxes for a tesla is stupid. The road tax is called like that since it is used in large part for the infrastructure. Environmental tax is just a small part of it. So why 0 road tax for teslas? They also need infrastructure don't they.

If anything, the environmental tax part could be lower, but even that not zero since electric cars are NOT emission free!!! , not by faaaar.

Any source to back that up? Taxes go into the budget and stuff gets paid out of the budget. I don't think CH has taxes that are bound to a specific spending...

(Fun fact: Germany introduced a special tax on sparkling wine in 1914 specifically in order to finance the navy during WW1. Guess which tax is still around today...)

Seems like the tax is similar to St. Gallen, only that in SG they don't charge the 50% penalty for F & G, they just include it in the main tax. My invoice for a Honda Accord Tourer 2.4 was 542chf. (Also category G)
