November 14, 2017, the government discussed the possibility of lifting the transport tax for electric car owners. This tax can be canceled already in 2018 and do not charge it for the next five years. However, there are opponents of such a decision. So, the head of the State Duma Committee on Budget and Taxes, believes that the bill to abolish the transport tax in its current form is not considered, since in this case the owners of expensive electric cars of the Tesla brand will not have to pay a luxury tax. Recall that in the summer of 2016, information appeared that the government was considering the abolition of the transport tax on electric vehicles in the framework of the program for the development of electric transport, calculated until 2025.
