Last updated: 15 February 2023

The Federal Law on New Automobile Taxation, implemented from 1997, set up a levy over new vehicle import and purchase. The tax is revised every year, and was notably adjusted in 2021 with rates going from 2% to 17% of the vehicle price. 

In 2016, the Mexican government added an article (Art.8) exempting electric and hybrid vehicles from sale or import taxation.
