Vehicle Tax

Pure battery powered electric cars are exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty (VED). The rules state "the electricity must come from an external source or an electric storage battery not connected to any source of power when the vehicle is moving".

Extended-range Hybrids, Plug in Hybrids and Petrol / Diesel Hybrids vehicle tax is based on their CO2 emission. You can use our Car Running Costs database to see the cost of taxing thousands of cars.
