The Transport Ministry is almost done with its review of the road tax rate structure for electric vehicles (EVs), with an announcement expected in April, said its minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook.

The aim of this review is to make the road tax for EVs more affordable compared to Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles, in order to encourage greater adoption of EVs, according to Bernama.

Loke stated that the primary challenge in this process is the comparison of engine capacity (CC) between ICE and EV vehicles.

Currently, road tax for EVs is exempted, but concerns have been raised by EV buyers regarding the possibility of higher road tax compared to ICE vehicles.

The government’s commitment lies in reducing taxes to ensure that purchasers of EVs are subject to reasonable road tax fees.

It is hoped that an announcement regarding the road tax for EVs can be made before the end of April.
