For other volumes of the engine, excise grid will be as follows. For 1-1.5 l petroleum engine cars the rate is now 0.063 Euro, comparing with previous 1,367 Euro; for 1.5-2.2 liter engine petroleum cars - 0.267 Euro (previously 1,643 Euro); with 2.2-3 liter engine - 0.276 Euro (2,213 Euro before); with an engine of more than 3 liters - 2,209 Euro (before - 3,329 Euro).

In addition, the law has a number of limitations.
First of all, the law only applies to cars produced after January 1, 2010.
Also, new rates do not apply to the cars derived "from a country recognised as an occupier state according to the law of Ukraine".
The rates only apply to 1 imported vehicle per year - one can import only one car for personal use with the condition that it won't be resold within one year.
In the case of resale of the vehicle within 365 days from the date of registration in Ukraine, the buyer will be obliged to pay the full tax. The validity of the bill set December 31, 2018.
