Hello ,

I know this is a long shot - about 8 months ago I heard that Greece was scrapping the import taxes for foreign cars.

Is it true? Has there been any change in the law?

Does having a second hand hybrid lower import costs?


Thanks in advance!

I believe you're right. Hybrids and electric cars are excluded from import tax. However, if it's a regular car, you pay a percent of the car's original sale value based on how much it pollutes, more or less (it's more complicated than that, but that's the basic idea).

*Exception to the exception: if the car is worth more than €16,000 (used) or €20,000 (new) you still have to pay a luxury tax.

If it's coming from outside the EU, there are a LOT more taxes, that's a totally separate issue.

Details here: ????????? ??????????? ????????
