No i don’t understand it to be honest but id like to think commercial vehicles are in a different band otherwise this is going to kill a lot of businesses

Thats the first year tax payment when you buy a new one. All years after that are £145/year, except if a car costs over £40k list price, then there are 5 years of £145+320 = £465. The high first year tax will be rolled up into the purchase price I guess. Nothings changed, all this was introduced back in 2017.

I'm waiting until 2023 to change my 4x4, I want a 4 or 5 litre engine and only have to pay £145/yr for it.........

So if i changed my truck for a 1yr old one id not have to pay it? And my tax would be £145 a yr?

Yes, if the list price was under £40k new.

Edit: Commercial vehicles come under a different tax regime, so pickups and vans are taxed differently, £260/yr flat rate from new. All the high first year rates are for domestic cars, but confusingly that can include 4x4s such as Discoveries etc.

So in a few years time the best bet will be a 'domestic' 4x4 paying £145/yr, vs a commercial pickup type paying £260.
