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.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

CO2 emissions: from 94g/km

It’s impressive that so many big, posh saloon cars manage such low emissions. Admittedly not every model in the C-Class range is quite so frugal – only the C300 BlueTec Hybrid manages to break the magic 100g/km barrier. For many that means a traditional diesel will be a better choice.
