Natural gas powered trucks will pay less in German tolls

The German Federal Parliament has approved the resolution to exempt alternative natural gas traction vehicles of more than 7.5 tons of the air pollution component of motorway tolls from January 1, 2019 for an initial period of 2 years.

This means that natural gas fleets will enjoy the same benefits as electric vehicles and will only have to pay tolls for infrastructure costs and the noise components of toll rates.

This exemption, together with the aid for the purchase of natural gas vehicles announced in July (€ 12.000 for LNG and € 8.000 for CNG vehicles), further increases the financial benefits of these sustainable trucks for German logistics operators, with savings ranging from 9.3 to 18.7 cents per kilometer, depending on the weight category.
