New Road taxes starting 2022 Fribourg?

By chance I was looking through the ocn.ch website and saw that for high powered cars the new road tax is now going to almost double, at least for me, starting Jan 1st 2022

So, my emission B6c rated 2.981 (3.0) liter vehicle (331kW / 450Hp) will now be taxed at CHF 1'251 per year starting Jan 2022
Currently for 2021, I'm paying CHF 730 based on the engine size

My old car (now sold, a 3.8 liter non turbo engine B5a rated 283kW / 385Hp) was at the time costing me CHF 870 per year (2019) and from 2022 this would come to CHF 1'081

Not sure why they are doing this... I guess more and more cars are becoming turbo charged because of emission and tax rules so they need to claw in the cash from somewhere...

Re: New Road taxes starting 2022 Fribourg?

Congrats on driving a car with 450 HP

Back to FR taxes, they're quite strange. Older cars have larger engines (2X) to deliver the same kW as modern cars. An older car will burn more gas and therefore emit more pollutants. There's no difference in road tax between emissions of engines with different volumes and same output. If AG ever came up with something like this, I'd go for a 1990s V-12.

The really idiotic thing is the reduction for delivery/work vehicles. People won't buy a small and clean car and work car. The only thing this incentive accomplishes is that people buy only 1 car which could be a Ford Ranger, Toyota hilux and VW Transporters and use it both for work and during the weekend yielding higher fleet average fuel consumption and emissions

It takes pretty much the same fuel to produce the same power, regardless of whether it's turbo or displacement.
