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.

Mazda 2

CO2 emissions from 89g/km

Mazda’s current range of cars is seriously impressive. Great to drive, well made and well-equipped, the Mazda2 is no exception. To get emissions of below 100g/km you’ll need a diesel and that costs a fair bit extra, though fortunately the petrols are still in low VED brackets.
