*The subsequent annual charges depend upon the fuel used
For cars with a list price (before discounts) of more than £40,000, the first year's charge will be based on the CO2 emissions (as in the table above).
After the first year the charge is based on the fuel used together with an additional rate of £310 for 5 years. After 5 years the charge reverts to the standard rate.
Purchasers of cars first registered on or after 1 April 2017 will be liable to a first year rate, which starts at £10 for cars with emissions of 1-50 g/CO2/km to £2,000 for cars with emissions in excess of 255 g/CO2/km.
From 1 April 2017 a flat standard rate of £140 will apply in all subsequent years, except for zero-emission cars, which will continue to attract a £0 rate. Cars with a list price of over £40,000 will attract a supplement of £310 per year for the first 5 years in which the standard rate it paid.
