    Default Extract from the Full Budget Report on Car Tax

    Vehicle excise duty.

    7.74 Fiscal incentives are one of a number of instruments that can promote improvements
    to vehicle fuel efficiency. Vehicle excise duty (VED) for cars was reformed in 2001 and is now
    based on graduated carbon dioxide bands which give a clear signal to motorists to choose less
    polluting vehicles. New energy efficiency vehicle labels – matching the graduated VED
    structure – were introduced into car showrooms last year, raising consumer awareness of the
    potential fuel savings available from using lower emissions vehicles.
    7.75 To strengthen environmental incentives, the Government announces further
    reforms to VED:
    • a new higher band of graduated VED (band G), set at £210 for petrol cars, will
    be introduced for the most polluting new cars (those above 225g of carbon
    dioxide emissions per kilometre);
    • the VED rate for the small number of cars with the very lowest carbon
    emissions (band A) will be reduced to £0 to encourage take-up and assist the
    development of the low carbon car market;
    • VED rates will also be reduced for band B by £35 and C by £5, frozen for
    bands D and E, and increased by £25 for band F;
    • rates for pre-2001 registered cars and light goods vehicles in the lower band
    will be frozen with the higher band increased by £5;
    • the reduced rate of graduated VED for alternative fuel cars will be extended to
    include those cars manufactured to run on high blend bioethanol (E85); and
    • In total, 50 per cent of cars will see their VED frozen or reduced.Three million
    cars will pay VED of £100 or less.

    Don't know where I find the Band for my car on the V5, but my C02 g/km is 221 so I just scrape inside Band F and I presume pay the same as now?

    One of the benefits of the 2.2 direct over the regular 2.2 was that I think it was a lower tax band, so 2.2 probaby is band F, which is increased. The direct's CO2 emissions are 185kgm, and band E's limits are 166-185 so it just makes it and no more, no such hope for the 2.2 I don't think.
