star this property answer text <p>The government uses the tax system to encourage the development and take-up of cars with low carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) emissions to meet our legally binding CO<sub>2</sub> targets and our ambition for the majority of all new cars and vans sold to be 100% zero emission by 2040.</p><p> </p><p>Zero emission cars attract favourable rates of both Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) and company car tax. For example, on first registration, a zero-emission car is not liable to pay any VED, whilst the most polluting models attract a VED rate of over £2,000.</p><p> </p><p>The government has also recently responded to the consultation on reforming the VED system for vans. This confirmed that from April 2021 zero and ultra low emission vans will receive a significant VED discount compared to conventionally fuelled alternatives.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government uses the tax system to encourage the purchase of cars with low carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) emissions. The Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) system works in a technology-neutral manner to encourage uptake of fuel efficient, low CO<sub>2</sub> emitting models irrespective of whether they are fuelled by petrol, diesel or battery power. This means the very cleanest zero-emission cars – that also produce no air quality pollutants – pay nothing in the first year of registration.</p><p> </p><p>HM Treasury keeps transport taxes under review, as it does with all taxes, and if the Chancellor decides to make changes, he will announce them at fiscal events.</p> more like this
