How much will it be to tax a 2017 BMW 730d diesel on the new system?

Thank you

Hi Con,

Assuming that the car is registered here already, and that it has CO2 emissions of 132g/km, there will be no change for 2021. The car is already in Band B2, costing €280 per annum.

However, if this car were to be imported and registered after 1 January 2021, its CO2 emissions rating would be 'uplifted' to 163g/km, meaning annual motor tax of €420.
