France To Ban Adverts Of SUVs To Discourage People From Buying Polluting Vehicles - autojosh

France is planning to double the penalty owners of gas guzzlers must pay to 50,000 euros (₦22.7m) in 2022.

This move by French government is designed to hasten the demise of the internal-combustion engine.

It will affect models from Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and top-line Mercedes models.

Luxury cars that will be affected includes Rolls-Royce’s Ghost and Cullinan; Bentley Flying Spur and Mercedes’s AMG and G-Class cars.





Others are Lamborghini’s Urus and Aventador and Ferrari’s Portofino and 812.

A draft budget law currently under consideration by France’s parliament may force car shoppers to reconsider purchases of gas guzzlers like Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini models.

According to Bloomberg, the French government is planning to more than double the penalty consumers must pay based on cars’ carbon-dioxide emissions to as much as 50,000 euros ($59,000) in 2022.

If this proposal is approved in Europe’s second-largest auto market, the amount would more than double its current taxes on powerful and polluting passenger vehicles.

This move by the French government is designed to hasten the demise of the internal-combustion engine. It will surely cause a drop in sales of top models from makers of supercars and luxury vehicles.





Under France’s latest plan, cars emitting more than 225 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer will be taxed a maximum rate of 40,000 euros next year and 50,000 euros in 2022.

According to Bloomberg, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and top-line Mercedes models would be hit with the upper-limit levy.

Models that would be affected by this move includes Lamborghini’s Urus and Aventador and Ferrari’s Portofino and 812.

Others are Porsche’s 718 Spyder and 911; Rolls-Royce’s Ghost and Cullinan; Bentley’s Flying Spur and Mercedes’s AMG and G-Class cars.
