Hybrid trucks exempted from tolls

The 5th revision to the Toll Act is currently under discussion and is to come into force on 21 January 2019. The hybrid trucks with a range of 40 km minimum are to be exempted from the toll rate (toll per kilometre distance). This financial incentive should reduce the proportion of internal combustion engines on the roads and consequently GHG emissions and air pollution.
