Change in the toll-exempt status of natural gas vehicles

Berlin, 6 Jul 2021

From 1 October 2021, the toll-exempt status for trucks powered by natural gas shall only apply to natural gas vehicles delivered from the factory for operation with CNG (compressed natural gas), LNG (liquified natural gas) or for operation as dual fuel engines with LNG/diesel, and which have system approval in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 595/2009. The vehicles must comply with emission class Euro VI and be configured by the vehicle manufacturer as a new vehicle powered predominantly by natural gas prior to initial registration in accordance with the traffic regulations. The toll-exempt status shall expire on 30 September 2021 for vehicles which have been subsequently retrofitted or have had one or more natural gas tanks added, as well as for natural gas vehicles which do not fall under emission class Euro VI.

Until 30 September 2021, these vehicles may remain registered with Toll Collect in the list of toll-exempt vehicles if they are powered completely or predominantly by natural gas. This includes vehicles powered by CNG, LNG or NG (natural gas). However, LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) drives are not exempt.

The natural gas tanks must have the following minimum capacities:

  • CNG: Minimum 300 litres or 50 kg;
  • LNG: Minimum 300 litres or 115 kg;
  • NG: Minimum 300 litres.

After 30 September 2021, all registered retrofitted natural gas vehicles will be removed from the list of toll-exempt vehicles. They will be subject to the toll requirement from 1 October 2021. Toll Collect will inform the vehicle keepers of this fact.
