    Some drivers could end up paying out hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds more.

    Just keep all this in mind if you are planning on buying a car anytime soon.

    Tories taxing the rich, Corbyn-istas will be confused.

    Why? £140 a year car tax applies to all car buyers - rich and poor. The new 1st year rates will only affect the cost of expensive new cars, most of which will be tax deductible. It seems that only Tories may be confused.

    Just a matter of curiosity, on what are the CO2 figures based ?
    Readings from your MOT ?
    Manufacturers claims ?
    Or easily faked pre launch rolling road tests ?

    I only ask as the reading between a new and a identical 3 year old with average mileage surely isn't going to be the same and as we all know rolling road stats are not consistent with real world usage and/or are easily manipulated.

    Then there's extreme modification such as putting a V6 in an Evo or a V8 in a transit...

    the cost of expensive new cars is entirely tax deductible, only the poor drive expensive cars which are 2 years old, you may be confused.

    so this applies to new and second hand cars? you will be in line for the new car tax if you register a car after April 2017

    To avoid the inevitable onslaught of confusion:

    THIS ONLY APPLIES TO CARS REGISTERED AFTER 1ST APRIL 2017!

    OR - in other words,
    Car is a 66 Plate or OLDER - Tax remains the same as you are paying now
    Car is 17 Plate or NEWER - Car will use the new £0/£140 Scheme

    So every car will cost 140 per year now?

    17 plate starts March 1st. So you could get a new car AND stick two fingers up to George Osborne at the same time.

    it was lovely to see most cars road tax for £20 -£30 a year, the old rates were disgusting £190 for 1 year as average so the government is going backwards instead of forward

    Can anyone on here explain why if you can afford a nice car why it means you will automatically be able to deduct the increased road licence as tax deductible ?!

    As the Road fund Licence is commonly referred to Road Tax. I for one see the sense in all of this. Most cars will occupy between 3.5-5m in length on any given lane on a road. Therefore everyone in a vehicle pays a similar amount to be on it.
    The larger engines vehicles will consume more fuel, paying more Fuel Duty and Vat.
    Of course when I buy a new car in years to come I'll moan like a baby. Until then a simplified system makes sense.
    Also how many VAG cars shouldn't have been in the brackets they were awarded.

    Mine's £235, I wonder if I can opt into it X)

    This is really going to affect leasing cars..
