Why is my Jaguar motor tax so high?

My car is a 2007 2.0-litre X-Type Jaguar with CO2 emissions (V7) of 149g/km; why am I charged €710 rather than a much lower rate? It is diesel.

How much to tax a Toyota Hilux 3.0?


I'm an approved seasonal none VAT-registered angling guide with the tourist board and need to upgrade from my old commercial L200 pick-up truck and was thinking of buying an 06 Vigo Toyota Hilux 3.0,  UK-plated. But I hear it is now very difficult to get commercial tax and if I tax it privately what would it cost plus the duty?
