Vehicle Excise Duty (VED)

What is Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) and what savings are there for EVs?

Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) is a tax applicable to all vehicles driving on UK roads. Pure electric cars are exempt from paying VED to offer full support for those opting for the very cleanest cars and vans. All cars that emit less than 75g/km CO2 will pay less road tax in the first year, delivering additional cash savings for plug-in hybrids.
