Drivers are being warned that car tax changes coming this year could cost them over £120.

Owners of the most polluting petrol and diesel vehicles will face the heaviest burden in the changes to vehicle excise duty (VED).

Set to be introduced in April, the VED rises will affect almost all motorists.

Vehicles producing CO2 emissions of over 255g per km will see their first-year rate rise from £2,245 to £2,365, according to the Express.

Meanwhile, vehicles producing between 226 and 255g per km will see increases from £1,910 to £2,015.

Those producing between 76 and 90g per km will see a first-year rate rise of just £5 extra to £120.

However, cars below this will see no changes to fees with electric cars remaining at £0.

Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs say the changes should not have any significant economic impact as the changes are in line with inflation.

They said this means rates will “remain unchanged in real terms”.

There will also be new charges for people who hire a car in a salary sacrifice scheme, known as a benefit in kind.

Rates will rise from 1 per cent to 2 per cent for the vehicles with the lowest emissions including fully electric cars.

The rates will also increase by 1 per cent for all other vehicles.

Those that produce 156 to 169g per km or over 170g per km will see no changes.

Some Clean Air Zones will also be introduced this year, including in Bradford.

Bradford is set to charge minibuses and LGVs £9 per day to enter the zone with HGVs facing a £50 fee. Private vehicles will be excluded.
