Road Tax Free Cars 2016

We’ve put together a list of all the new cars on sale that are vehicle tax exempt.

The current rules mean that any new car emitting less than 100g/km CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) are in VED (Vehicle Excise Duty) Band A, which means the cost is £0 a year for tax. Remember though, even though the cost is zero, you still have to have a tax disc!

The numbers of tax free cars are increasing all the time, so we’ll constantly update this list of exempt cars.

Some cars have certain engines that aren’t exempt, so we’ve listed the lowest price, fuel and gearbox type of the engines which are tax free. Below each car is a link to a page with compiled expert reviews, user reviews, photos, videos and stats for that car.
