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 27g/km

Vauxhall’s version of the Chevrolet Volt ‘electric range-extended vehicle’ works in exactly the same way, with an electric motor driving the front wheels. Around 50 miles of range is available from a plug-in charge with a small petrol engine keeping the battery charged on the move. Road tax is free.
