Carbon Tax Calculation for Passenger and Double Cab Bakkies

Think Blue is an attitude which goes beyond technologies and products.

While our vehicles with the BlueMotion badge set benchmarks when it comes to fuel consumption and environmental impact, Think Blue takes a step forward and encompasses "blue" strategies undertaken at our Production facility in Uitenhage and by the Dealer network, minimising our organisation's carbon footprint more holistically.

Passenger vehicles attract the carbon tax from 121g/km at R90 per gram + 14% VAT

For example:

A vehicle with emissions at 130g/km: (130-120) = 10 x 90 + 14% VAT = R1 026 carbon tax

For Double Cabs the threshold increases to R125 per gram over 175g/km

For example:

A Double Cab of 212g/km: (212-175) = 37 x 125 + 14% VAT = R5 272.50

All Light Commercial vehicles are exempt from Carbon Taxation at this stage.

This has been calculated as of 1 October 2015 and is subject to change.
