The annual car tax of the Grandeur 3.3, which costs 40 million won, is 860,000 won, and the BMW 530i, which costs 80 million won, is 520,000 won.

Why is the cheaper car more expensive and the more expensive car cheaper?

automobile tax (Automobile) is the person/corporation that owns the vehicleaimed at taxto be. Since automobile tax is a tax on ownership, it is calculated and levied in the same way even if you are not actually driving.

The standard for imposition of tax on passenger cars and small vans is displacementis, The standard for tax imposition varies depending on the type of vehicle (general passenger car, van, truck, special vehicle) and use (personal vehicle, business use). In principle, there is no charge for official vehicles.

In other words, since the tax is based on the displacement rather than the value of the vehicle, the following reversal occurred.

So, why tax based on emissions?

The reason lies in the purpose of the ‘automobile tax’.

‘Automobile tax’ is not a concept of ‘property tax’. In other words, we’re not trying to pay higher taxes on more expensive cars. Expensive vehicles are already subject to additional taxes such as value-added tax, individual consumption tax, and acquisition tax upon purchase.

The ‘automobile tax’ is considered to have a greater impact on air pollution in the order of high emissions, and imposes a levy on the environment accordingly.

In fact, in the past, the higher the emissions, the greater the amount of carbon dioxide and exhaust gas, so it was accepted as a reasonable figure to some extent.

But these days it’s a little different.

Even in the same 1600CC vehicle, the K8, a 1600CC turbo hybrid vehicle, and the Avante Nline, a 1600CC turbo general gasoline vehicle, have different exhaust gas emission levels and fuel efficiency despite the different car classes.

In addition, because electric vehicles do not have displacement, Tesla Model S pays only 130,000 won per year in car tax of 150 million won.

Considering that EVs emit no emissions while driving, they also emit more CO2 than the production and operation of internal combustion engine vehicles during battery production.

A reasonable reform of the automobile tax appears to be essential.
