And if you are a commuter, i.e., your residence and your workplace are on opposite ends of the Sondermautstrecke, the annual pass costs 38.50 Euro without a yearly vignette, and 0.00 Euro if you have an annual vignette.

Btw, the sections where a special toll is collected is exempt from the vignette, so technically you do not pay twice for that stretch...

Not that many countries have a (nearly) entirely untolled* motorway network. These countries are mostly in northwestern and northern Europe (B, D, DK, FIN, GB, L, NL, S). In case of trucks, only Finland and Estonia have no truck tolls.

* I'd like to avoid the term 'free', because no road comes free.

In case of Austria, it has one of the lowest fuel prices of high-income Europe, which compensates the vignette and tolls a bit. Also, the vignette may seem expensive, but you'll spend more money on fuel taxes if you refuel two times 50L than you pay on the annual vignette.

But most of Europe do not collect tolls for sing their motorway/expressway network (for cars/motorbikes) - as previously posted - they use road/fuel taxes, and some add a vignette, instead. Austria is particular, as it often uses vignette and tolls on the same potion of motorway/expressway.

As for fuel prices in Austria, petrol is ~5 % cheaper, and diesel is ~10% cheaper than in Switzerland. But, GPD per capita is ~29% higher in Switzerland.
Overall, CH is being cheaper in that field than A, and it has one of the lowest fuel and motorways prices of high-incomes Europe.

This is for EU only, but it shows that many countries are not based on tolls. Note that in Spain and in Poland only few motorways/expressways are tolled, the others are free to use (cars):

When did Lithuania leave the EU?

Croatia is missing from the map too, but there's the excuse that the map could be from before 1st July 2013.

yes, this is bit simplistic...

- as you say, around 60-70% of spanish motorways don't have any tolls of any kind. Same goes for Poland.

- Electronic tolls in Portugal are only aplied on certain motorways of their network, there are also physical barriers on many motorways.

- Denmark has tolls with physical barriers on their "bridge motorways".

- Even when they are not widespread, it must be pointed out that France and Italy have a significat amount of motorways/expressways without any tolls

The map is from 2012. As for Lithuania, ask this to the European Commission .

It is claimed that the S10-D3 cross-border motorway (Linz - České Budějovice) will be completed in 2021.

M5 is not tolled anywhere. M6 TOLL is (not M6 itself) and then several tunnels and bridges.
