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.

Hi Kevin,

You’re charged the higher rate because your car is a 2007 registration — so it was registered before the switchover to the CO2-based tax system, which kicked in in January of 2008.
