Law 3831/2010 on 'Revision of the vehicle taxes regime for vehicles, abolishment of the vehicles recycling measures (scrappage scheme) and measures for tackling atmospheric pollution'
This law regulates traffic taxes for different vehicles. It divides cars into four classes from A (vehicles with the lowest emissions) to D (vehicles with the highest emissions). The revised taxes are based on these four classes and on cylinder capacity. The legislation exempts from annual vehicle taxes privately owned hybrid, electric, and hydrogen passenger cars in classes A and B with capacity lower than 1,929cc. As for A and B class hybrid, electric or hydrogen vehicles with a cylinder capacity higher than 1,929cc, the relevant vehicle taxes are cut by half. Hybrid and low?emission vehicles are also exempt.
