Infrastructure Minister plans to end car tax for electric cars

Wed, 15 Feb 2017

Drivers of electric cars could pay no road tax on the Isle of Man in the future.

Infrastructure Minister Ray Harmer revealed that he plans to introduce a revised Vehicle Duty Order next month making a number of changes, including abolishing road tax payments for electric vehicles.

The Minister also confirmed that there will be a full review of the system over the next year, considering whether cars using alternative fuels should also pay a different amount of tax.

There could also be more incentives for Manx motorists to drive electric behicles in the future, including introducting more charging points around the Island.
