Vehicle Excise Duty: call for evidence

A call for evidence on Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) which will seek views on moving towards a more dynamic VED system and how VED can support a reduction in road transport emissions.



In July 2019, the Government committed to publishing a call for evidence seeking views on moving towards a more dynamic system which recognises smaller differences in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

This call for evidence seeks views on how the Government can use VED to further encourage the uptake of zero and ultra-low emission cars, and reduce overall emissions from road transport, to both help meet our legally binding climate change targets and improve air quality. It also seeks views on the VED treatment of motorcycles.
