The Clean Car programme consists of rebates and fees for new and used eligible vehicles the first time they are registered in New Zealand, based on CO2 emissions. These changes are to ensure fees generate enough revenue to fund the scheme’s rebates and administration costs.
The Government has announced that the Clean Car Discount (CCD) is ending on 31 December 2023. To get a rebate, applications for an eligible registered vehicle need to be successfully submitted on the NZTA website by 11:59pm, 31 December 2023. No vehicles will be subject to a CCD fee from 1 January 2024.
To learn more about these changes, please visit Waka Kotahi or contact your local Audi dealer.
