France's environment ministry has announced plans for a new 'green' road tax scheme that will give significant incentives for drivers who opt for low carbon vehicles.
The ministry plans a 'carrot-and stick' approach which will offer rebates of up to Euro700 to drivers of smaller cars emitting less than 140g/km CO2, while drivers of high carbon and more polluting vehicles face surcharges of up to Euro3500.
Of around two million new cars sold in France each year, approximately half will fall into the middle category and be unaffected by the new measure, according to the ministry.
