Do you know how much a Euro 5 engine could save you in Germany?

20/01/2009 Eindhoven
The new road toll tariffs came into effect in Germany on 1 January 2009. The new tariffs mean that you will pay significantly more for a truck conforming to emission standards Euro 1 to Euro 4 than you will for a Euro 5 or EEV vehicle. Depending on the Euro standard to which your truck conforms and the number of kilometres you cover in Germany each year, you could save thousands of euro by opting for a Euro 5 vehicle.

Considerable tax benefits

If you drive over 70,000 km per year in Germany in a Euro 3 truck, in 2009 you will pay no less than € 3430.00 more than a colleague with a Euro 5 truck. That equates to almost five euro cents per kilometre, so it's certainly worth your while to consider switching to Euro 5.

Even if you don't drive in Germany, now is the time to switch to Euro 5. If you do, you can be assured of free access to the environmental zones that are becoming increasingly common in urban distribution areas in Europe.
