FAQ on the CO2 tax calculation

The CO2 tax is calculated in accordance with the CO2 Ordinance on the basis of the COC (Certificate of Conformity) calculated. The manufacturer’s document shows exact values about your vehicle. The Federal Office of Energy also maintains its own CO2 tax calculator, Astra.


Under item 13.2 “Actual mass of the vehicle” you will find the unladen weight.

Rule of thumb: The higher the weight, the higher the CO2 emissions may be.


The exact CO2 emissions can also be found under point 49 of the COC. The CO2 values are given for urban, extra-urban and combined. We need the combined WLTP value for the calculation.
