The list of cars, which are luxury taxed, will be expanded


Following the rise in recommended retail prices, about which automakers are actively reporting in the Russian market in recent months, the list of cars subject to the "luxury tax" in our country will be obviously expanded. Recall that at the moment the Federal Tax Service (FTS) has set a price level for the transport tax - "everything that is more expensive than 3 million rubles - falls under the increased coefficient." Until recently, among the new passenger cars that are officially sold in Russia, there were at least about 150 luxury tax models.

Traditionally, in March, the Ministry of Industry and Trade arranges a revision of this list of cars. Obviously, the Mercedes-Benz GLA should now appear on this list. Before the December price increase in the basic version, the model cost less than 3 million rubles (according to the "Auto Price"), now its minimum price starts at 3 million 100 thousand rubles. With the Jaguar E-Pace crossover, a similar story happened back in November, when, having received an increase in the cost by 102 thousand rubles (as reported by the "Auto Price" again), it began to be sold to customers at a price of 3 million 003 thousand rubles in the basic version.

It is curious that the list of the Ministry of Industry and Trade is expanding not only due to premium brands. The mass segment in its top-end trim levels also increases the cost and thus burdens its future owners with an annual quitrent in the form of a "luxury tax". So, for example, in the spring, Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Hilux should certainly be on the list: after the November price increase, their initial configurations are still below 3 million rubles, but in more expensive versions they reach 3 492 500 rubles (for Fortuner) and 3 269 000 rubles (for Hilux). A similar picture is for Nissan Murano, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and a number of others.
