Legislators propose tax exemptions and marchamo (first five years) for electric vehicles

(QCOSTARICA) The president of Purdy Motor, Javier Quiros, said he opposes a proposed tax exemption on electric cars in the country and that it will not encourage people to buy them.

Quiros’ company is the exclusive Toyota dealer in the country.

The businessman said that the tax exemptions and other incentives to purchase electric vehicles will be insufficient given that the country lacks a nationwide system of “electrolineras” or charging stations.

Quiros made his views known on the morning radio program Nuestra Voz, in contrast to arguments by the proponents of the incentives, legislators Marcela Guerrero of the Partido Acción Ciudadana (PAC), Gerardo Vargas of the Frente Amplio and Natalia Diaz of the Movimiento Libertario.

Among the proposed incentives is a 100% exemption on import and sales tax and no payment of the “marchamo” (annual circulation permit) for the first five years.

The proposed initiative also calls for a minimum of 24 electrolineras in different points across the country.

The legislators added that the main purpose of their proposal is to “gradually change the Costa Rican culture”.
