After some recent correspondence in the Liberal Democrat News, I have been contacted with some interesting snippets of information about low carbon emitting MPV vehicles.
I highlighted the VW Touran 1.9TDI S, which has 162 g/km emissions. This would put it in Band D of our proposals (range: 151-165), attracting only an extra £25. It comes with up to seven seats.
Now I have been made aware of the new seven-seater Citroen C4 Picasso, which has a version that emits only 150 g/km. That means that it would attract no extra tax under our VED proposals. See our full policy here.
This is, yet again proof of two things:
1. Manufacturers are changing and producing greener large cars.
2. Our policy does not discriminate against large cars. It discriminates against heavily polluting cars.
