Clean Car Programme

New Zealand Government Clean Car Programme

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. From 1 July 2023 the NZ Govt. Clean Car programme will change. These changes are to ensure fees generate enough revenue to fund the scheme’s rebates and administration costs.

To learn more about these changes, please visit Waka Kotahi or contact your local Audi dealer.

The NZ Govt. Clean Car Programme will see vehicles which emit higher rates of CO2 subject to fees.

The person who registers, for the first time, any new or used vehicle with carbon dioxide emissions of 192 grams or more per kilometre must pay the fee calculated pursuant to the formula set out under regulation 7 of the Land Transport (Clean Vehicle Discount Programme Charges) Regulations 2022.
