  1. A car propelled solely by diesel registered on or after 1 April 2018, and which does not meet the Real Driving Equivalent (RDE) Step 2 standard will be subject to a first year rate equivalent to the band above the actual emissions of the car, up to the maximum of £2,135 for 2019/20.
  2. An alternative fuel discount of £10 is available for alternatively powered cars, including hybrids.
  3. All cars, including those with zero emissions, with a list price greater than £40,000 when new will be subject to an annual £320 supplement on top of the standard rate for the first 5 years.
  4. The government is carrying out a review to consider the impact of the Worldwide harmonised Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) on VED for cars first registered from April 2020 onwards. Although the government believes that the fundamental structure of VED is appropriate, if changes to the VED regime are required it is proposed these would be included in Finance Bill 2019 - 20, with draft legislation being published for technical consultation prior to the publication of the Finance Bill.
