If it was originally planned that for all cars registered as from 1 March 2020, the calculation of the road tax would be based on the emission rates measured in WLTP standard, the government backed down. Vehicles registered before 1 March 2020 will continue to benefit from the NEDC scheme for the duration of the contract.
The implementation of WLTP values for the calculation of motor vehicle tax is delayed until the entry into force of bill n°7506.”
Until the Government communicates this new date (of first registration) from which the road tax will be calculated on the basis of the WLTP values, motor vehicles will continue to benefit from the NEDC scheme subject to confirmation by the Government as to the modalities of application.
However, it is still advisable, especially for cars with a delivery time of several months, to consider the WLTP value at the time of purchase.
Regarding vehicles registered before 1 March 2020, they will continue to benefit from the NEDC scheme for the duration of the contract.
