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.

CO2 emissions from 84g/km

Most models in the GLE range emit quite a lot of CO2, but the plug-in hybrid model only emits 84g/km. Officially it’s capable of more than 70mpg but, like most plug-in models, its economy figure is based on a full charge, so to make the most of it you need to keep it topped up.
