Introduce an 'Luxury Polluter' tax on high CO2 output luxury cars.
We the undersigned would like the government to introduce an additional annual tax on new luxury vehicles costing over £40,000 whose rated CO2 output exceeds 150g/km.
One of the few remaining obstacles towards the decarbonisation of our transport network is the affordability of greener vehicles. However for buyers of luxury vehicles costing over £40,000 this is not an issue as there are a great many low-emissions vehicles able to fit a variety of needs.
The goal of the proposed tax is specifically to discourage only the absolute largest, and most polluting vehicles and only among those for whom the cost of using a cleaner alternative is not a burden.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
