Vehicle Excise Duty

Road Tax is changing in 2020

From April 1st 2020, road tax (or Vehicle Excise Duty - VED) is changing. Find out what this means for you.

What is changing?

A new testing procedure, designed to more accurately reflect real world driving comes into effect from April 1st 2020.

The Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) replaces the old NEDC process that has been in place since the 1990s and is changing the emissions and fuel consumption figures on most cars.

What this means for new car buyers

The effect of the changes to VED is that most conventional cars will be more expensive to tax from April 1st 2020.

Lower emissions vehicles, like plug-in hybrids and electric cars, will not see tax rises however, with cars that emit less than 50 g/km, like our Outlander PHEV, paying £0 road tax.
