I believe you’re referring to Road Tax. The upfront cost of the car is more expensive, so more sales tax and initial fees. Plus tax on electricity. They pay, but it’s in other forms. But for now, gas tax is the highest percentage of road tax, but there are more gasoline cars. So, rightfully so.Right now, as far as I know, they aren't!
Many are suggesting a GPS system to record miles, but here in the US, I don't see that flying. People don't want big brother tracking where they've been. They say they will track miles but not location. There's also the problem of crossing boundaries where one state, county, etc, have differing rates. How can that be accomplished by not knowing where you've been? Perhaps they can add it to the cost at the charging stations...who knows?
