The Sub-100g/km Club

Annual vehicle tax can be a significant part of a car’s running costs. The rate of road tax or, to give it its official name, Vehicle Excise Duty, is determined by a car’s CO2 emissions. The lower the CO2 emissions the less you have to pay.

Some cars offer the first year free, but incur a charge thereafter. But others, if the CO2 is low enough, allow owners to renew the VED free of charge year after year. The current threshold for that is 100g/km and a surprisingly high number of cars now qualify.

Citroen C4 Cactus

CO2 emissions from 90g/km

The lightweight C4 Cactus is both practical and fun. The little bubbles down the side, called Airbumps, are designed to absorb impacts from doors or shopping trollies. Clever stuff. And there are various low-CO2 models to choose from.
