Summary of Clean Car Discount 1 July 2023 changes

As a self-financing scheme, the Clean Car Discount’s rebates and fees require regular review and adjustment to ensure fees generate enough revenue to fund the scheme’s rebates and administration costs. From 1 July 2023 rebates and fees for the Clean Car Discount will be changing.

Some of the changes are:

  • a special rebate for new and used low emission disability vehicles will be introduced
  • for new vehicles, the maximum rebate will decrease, and the maximum fee will increase
  • the threshold at which vehicles will be subject to fees will reduce from 192 grams of CO2 per kilometre to 150 grams.

NZ Govt. 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 has changed. These changes are to ensure fees generate enough revenue to fund the scheme’s rebates and administration costs.

Eligibility Criteria

Eligibility criteria are detailed in the Land Transport Act 1998 and any regulations made under that Act.

In short, the following eligibility criteria must be met:

  • The vehicle must be registered for the first time in New Zealand from 1 July 2023.
  • The vehicle must have a safety rating of 3 stars or more on the Rightcar website at the time of registration: rightcar.govt.nz.
  • The vehicle must have been purchased for less than $80,000 (New Zealand dollars), including GST and on‑road costs (the purchase price).
  • The rebate is payable only to the first person registered to the vehicle (regardless of ownership), unless the first person registered is a registered motor vehicle trader (ie the Dealer you purchase the vehicle from).

How to Apply

If you wish to apply for a rebate, you must complete the online application form on the NZTA site, including reading and agreeing to the terms and conditions, which can be found here.

In completing the application you will be required to provide the following supporting documentation:

  • a copy of the vehicle offer and sale agreement (or such alternative documentation as Waka Kotahi deems necessary in the circumstances);
  • proof of the registered person's bank account;
  • GST number if the vehicle is being used for business purposes.

The NZ Govt. Clean Car Programme will also 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.

Please note: 

  • The above figures for rebates and fees are indicative only.
  • Where we have indicated the dollar value of a rebate or fee for a vehicle elsewhere on our website or in our marketing materials, that figure is indicative only. 
  • If rebate funds are exhausted at any given time, no rebate will be paid. Once the Programme restarts, only vehicles registered from the restart date that meet the eligibility requirements will qualify for a rebate.
