From April 1st 2020, road tax (or Vehicle Excise Duty - VED) is changing. Find out what this means for you.
A new testing procedure, designed to more accurately reflect real world driving comes into effect from April 1st 2020.
The Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) replaces the old NEDC process that has been in place since the 1990s and is changing the emissions and fuel consumption figures on most cars.
The effect of the changes to VED is that most conventional cars will be more expensive to tax from April 1st 2020.
Lower emissions vehicles, like plug-in hybrids and electric cars, will not see tax rises however, with cars that emit less than 50 g/km, like our Outlander PHEV, paying £0 road tax.
Using the table below, you can find out what tax band your chosen vehicle will be in after April 1st. All you need to know is the car's CO2 emissions.
|ED Band||CO2 Emissions (g/km)||First-Year Rate||First-Year Rate for non-RDE2 Diesels||Alternative Fuel Vehicles|
|B||1 - 50||£10||£25||£0|
|C||51 - 75||£25||£110||£15|
