Autumn Budget 2017

Vehicle Excise Duty


Introduction of the Diesel Supplement

Purchasers of diesel cars registered on or after 1 April 2018 that do not meet the real driving emissions standard will see an increase of one Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) band in their First-Year Rate. This will apply to any diesel car that is not certified to the Real Driving Emissions 2 (RDE2) standard.

Cars which are certified as meeting the Real Driving Emissions 2 (RDE2) standard under Annex IIIA of Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1151 will be exempt from the diesel supplement. This will be set in legislation at a value of nitrogen oxides (NOx) no greater than 80mg/km.

The RDE2 standard sets a maximum permitted level of car NOx emissions in real world driving situations. Cars must pass the certified level of NOx emissions irrespective of the driving behaviour during the test – for example, this will account for the effect of driving uphill.

Individuals will pay more in First Year VED Rates depending on the vehicle they choose, e.g. someone purchasing a typical Ford Focus diesel will pay an additional £20 in the First Year, a VW Golf will pay £40, a Vauxhall Mokka £300 and a Landrover Discovery £400.
