New car tax changes will hike up charges for petrol and diesel drivers this year.The tax rates will come into effect this spring as drivers of the most polluting vehicles are set to pay more.Motorists will also be impacted by an increase in road tax, also known as Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), along with changes to the Benefit in Kind (BiK) tax.

VED charges are set to increase for cars of almost all emission ranges, The Express reports. A major change in Scotland this year is the introduction of Low Emission Zones in parts of the country, creating further fees for some road users.Here are the changes affecting drivers in 2022.VED, often called road tax, is rising with the retail prices index measure of inflation in April.Vehicles that emit zero grams per kilometre of CO2 are expected to continue paying zero, while petrol- and most diesel-powered drivers (including hybrids) that emit between 1g and 50g per kilometre will pay £10 for the first 12 months.Cars that emit between 51g and 5g per kilometre currently pay £25 for the first year.Cars that emit between 76g and 150g per kilometre of CO2 saw their VED rates rise by £5 this year - to £220.The more CO2 a car emits per kilometre, the more you are likely to pay next year.The worst affected are usually cars that emit more than 255g per kilometre of CO2 - these currently set you back £2,245 a year in tax - it then rises each April.
