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.

BMW i3

CO2 emissions: EV 0g/km; Range extender: 13g/km

BMW’s take on the electric car has every chance of being a great success – it’s stylish, well put together, good to drive and environmentally friendly. The pure EV version emits 0g/km, but for those who suffer range anxiety there’s a range-extended model with emissions of 13g/km. Both are free to tax and exempt from the London congestion charge.
