500 Abarth road tax (VED) rates

Friday, August 1st, 2008

We recently clarified the road tax (VED) rates for the new Grande Punto Abarth. Here, we do the same for the 500 Abarth.

The 500 Abarth has a CO2 output of 155 g/km, a little lower than the Punto because of the engine’s lower state of tune and reduced weight. At today’s VED rates, that places it in Band D, which costs £145/year.

For 2009/10 with the revised VED bands, the 500 Abarth will slot into Band G, with a bill for £150.

In 2010/11, the Band G rate will increase by a fiver to £155. Luckily for those looking to buy new, there’s no increased first year rate (aka the ‘showroom tax’) for Band G.

Year VED Band First year rate Standard rate
2008/9 D £145 £145
2009/10 G £150 £150
2010/11 G £155 £155
