To qualify for being tax exempt, the car in question must emit 100g/km of CO2 or less. Cars that come with 0 road tax are categorised in band A for vehicle Excise Duty (VED) which is the proper term for what many of us refer to as 'road tax'. There are a surprising number of tax exempt cars on the market, with the vast majority of manufacturers boasting at least one qualifying model.
A good car is both objective and subjective, no one wants a car that's going to break down all the time, but not everyone looks for speed, practicality or even style. We do all want to feel comfortable, secure and safe from danger as we can possibly be, and there are many cars that are of the highest safety rating and can ensure yours and your child's safety, but that's not the only danger. There is a danger to our planet as well as to our lives, and that's why all cars with CO2 emissions that fall below a certain rate are classified in band A of VED and are therefore tax exempt.
