The Dutch House of Representatives approved the introduction of an extra truck tax from 2026 last week. Goods vehicles over 3.5 tons will have to pay the fee of Evofenedex based on the driven miles and the vehicle's emissions classification.
A new heavy vehicle tax will be imposed on all lorries weighing over 3,500 kilograms, that are used to transport goods from 2026 in the Netherlands.
When a truck drives on a road where the taxation is applicable, an onboard unit will register the distance covered. The amount of tax will be based on the number of miles driven on Dutch motorways, as well as various regional and local roads and also on the vehicle’s emissions classification.
The Dutch government is expecting a revenue of approximately 256 million euros from the new tax, part of which is going to be returned, to the transport sector, for example by supporting the industry’s transition to zero-emission road transport.
