New emissions banding

Post by Sirrah4941 » Thu Aug 02, 2018 10:56 pm

I’m considering the upgrade options on a disco or a RRS but I noticed that most dealers were being vague over the changes in the emissions grading that is being reviewed in September 18. Looking on Google there is this article which if I read right the road tax increase is significant!

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.expres ... l-cars/amp
So basically a Disco with 199 of Co2 emission would be:
191 - 225 g/km CO2
CURRENT RATE: £1,200
FROM APRIL 2018:£1,700

So is this tire? Anyone ordered one and what are the dealers saying? I’m confused by these changes and it seems that people will be priced out of having a nice car that they are passionate about which feels a bit unfair.

The 3.0l diesel has a co2 of 189. Tax for first 12 months is £1240 not sure if that includes the £310 for vehicles over £40k.
It then drops to £140 a year but still the extra £310 for 5 years.
This info is of the DVLA web site
