The proposal in question does not lie. In the report ‘Sharp goals, sharp choices’, the Interdepartmental Climate Policy Research makes the necessary sharp proposals. One of the most striking of these is the increase in bpm, the tax on new cars that is based entirely on CO2 emissions. No bpm is therefore paid at all for electric cars. Nevertheless, according to the IBO report, electric cars are more expensive than combustion engine cars. To solve this, the latter would have to be made considerably more expensive by raising the bpm ‘to the old 2010 level on average’. That is the year in which CO2 emissions were introduced as a basis, before that a fixed percentage of about 45 percent (!) of the new value applied. Hardly a surprise, the RAI Association is not happy with that proposal. Section Chairman Passenger Cars and Light Commercial Vehicles Huub Dubbelman: “In addition to food, housing, education and health care, easily accessible and affordable mobility is a basic need for everyone. If the cabinet chooses to fine cars with a combustion engine and at the same time does not encourage electric vehicles, driving will become unaffordable for many people.” According to the RAI Association, such a higher purchase tax would also be counterproductive, because it would also make relatively clean and economical cars unaffordable. According to RAI, motorists would also drive longer in their older car instead of switching to a newer and cleaner fuel car (or hybrid, ed.). The Association also lacks an incentive option. After all, such an incentive would actually make the desired ‘CO2-free’ cars more attractive, instead of making the alternative less attractive.
