Car tax in Denmark

This picture is of the informational sign that stood beside the new Volkswagen Passat in the lobby of the Radisson SAS Hotel in Aarhus.

At the bottom of the picture is the tax inclusive price of the Passat, which equals 579, 989 Danish Kroner. At the current exchange rate, this equals US$111,772 according to

This is why you travel to foreign countries, to see things like excise taxes over 200 percent.

Oh, and this is a great hotel if you ever get to Aarhus. One of only a few that I really look forward to.
