Vehicle emissions are a major contributor of greenhouse gases leading to climate change and local air pollution affecting human health. As a result, many tax signals and incentives in the UK are now directly linked to vehicle emissions and fuel type. Examples include car tax, company car tax and the 100% discount on the London Congestion Charge.
Next Green Car's microsite provides an overview of the key vehicle emissions, an explanation of the NGC Rating and a selection of search tools to help you find a low emission new or used car. These tools enable searches by CO2 emissions, by make and model and/or NGC Rating.
The microsite also includes an introduction to Ultra low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) which are defined as cars and vans with tailpipe CO2 emissions of 75 g/km or less.
