The change doesn’t affect any vehicle registered before 1 April 2017, but drivers can check the vehicle tax rates to make sure they know what they need to pay. Vehicle tax for the first year is based on CO2 emissions. After the first year, the amount of tax that needs to be paid depends on the type of vehicle. The rates are: £140 a year for petrol or diesel vehicles; £130 a year for alternative fuel vehicles (hybrids, bioethanol and LPG); £0 a year for vehicles with zero CO2 emissions.
