CO2 values are changing - what does this mean for you?

From 1 April 2020 due to new legislation, all car manufacturers will change CO2 values from NEDC^ correlated to WLTP*.

WLTP aims to be more representative of real world driving conditions. As a result, most cars will change Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) road tax bands.

What is Vehicle Excise Duty (VED)?

VED is an annual tax for registering vehicles in the UK. The first-year of road tax is included in a car’s On-The-Road (OTR) price and is based on its carbon dioxide emissions (CO2).

The new CO2 values from 1 April 2020 will affect VED in the vehicle price build. The list price (P11D) is not affected by this change.

For cars that have a list price of £40,000 or more, the government will charge a supplementary £320 road tax on the second year of taxation for a duration of 5 years. Due to the CO2 changes from 1 April 2020, most models will fall into a different VED band.
