That's nothing - the 2.2 petrol auto is 460 per year, so they're probably all totally worthless now.

I can understand the petrol one being pricey but the DERVs are normally a lot cheaper I thought.

True, just thought they were all mainly <160 mark to tax.

Re: rare 2.4 very cheap 1,095.00

It doesn't matter really as it's all going to change soon anyway...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/...ing-green.html

The govt brings in green taxes, we all respond by going greener, the govt complains that they're not taking as much off us.

They did very well out of punishing VED prices for a few years, until we got the chance to change cars.

And they always say "green" taxes are to change behaviour, not to raise money. Yeah right.

Re: rare 2.4 very cheap 1,095.00

they never should have lowered road tax for green cars in the first place, low emissions don't stop roads wearing out. don't reckon they lost much anyway am sure they added it to the rest of the cars that didn't come under the green label

Re: rare 2.4 very cheap 1,095.00

These highly paid people that come up with these schemes don't seem to understand unintended consequences.

I'll bet their solution is something like this - we're 13 billion short, there are 1 million new cars registered every year, so charge a registration fee of 13,000 per car. Job sorted.

Then everyone stops buying new cars, plan failed again.

I like one of the comments on the article: We need a hybrid government that doesn't burn as much cash.

Road tax just fills the government's coffers no doubt to be plundered for expenses and huge payrises that the noble folk in Westminster deem necessary
