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.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

CO2 emissions: 44g/km

This model is responsible for a boom in Mitsubishi sales. It’s a plugin hybrid, so can operate as an EV, but it also has a petrol engine for longer trips. Despite being high-tech, it’s the same price as an equivalent diesel – so it’s easy to understand its success.
