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 87g/km

This version of the Toyota Auris, launched in December 2012, offers a single diesel variant with CO2 emissions of 99g/km (larger wheels and specification changes on other diesels increase CO2), but all derivatives of the Auris Hybrid manage to duck the threshold for free VED.
