In 2024, ecological bonuses and penalties will change. For the latter, there will be many new features. Particularly in terms of weight, as was expected. The latter will therefore be triggered earlier than in the past. It will now be activated from 1.6 tonnes. So far this is 1.8 tonnes.
This will be all the more marked as this penalty will become progressive in 2024. Thus, between 1,600 and 1,800 kilos, the kilo will be charged 10 euros. From 1,800 kilos, this will increase to 15 euros per kilo. Then at 20 euros per kilo from 1,900 kilos. The two tonnes will mean a move to 25 euros per kilo, before a limit of 30 euros per kilo from 2,100 kilos.
- Over 1,600 kg: €10/kg
- Over 1,800 kg: 15€/kg
- Over 1,900 kg: €20/kg
- Over 2,000 kg: 25€/kg
- Over 2,100 kg: €30/kg
This will particularly concern pick-ups with four or more seats, which will no longer be able to escape the penalty. While this currently affects those with five or more places.
What are the ways to escape the ecological penalty?
Note that it will be possible to escape the ecological penalty in various ways. Thus, 100% electric vehicles will be exempt. On the other hand, the situation changes for plug-in hybrids. You will also need to take out the calculator if you have a large family.
Thus, plug-in hybrids will have a tolerance depending on the weight of their battery. If their electric range exceeds 50 km, it will be possible to subtract 200 kilos from the total mass within the limit of 15% of the mass. Enough to significantly reduce the penalty.
For large families, the reduction in the weight penalty in place in 2023 should be retained. Thus, from three children, it will be possible to deduct 200 kilos per child from this penalty when purchasing a car. Enough to reduce the bill.
Note that the authorities announce that they are monitoring these exemptions from the penalty very closely. For large families, the latter can only be requested once every two years. Enough to put an end to abuse, according to Bercy.
