I don't usually buy brand new cars as they devalue massively as soon as you drive them away but the new tax (ironically from April 1st) will catch up with everyone sooner or later. 
Basically there is a high first year tax for newly registered cars (anything up to £2000 for a gas guzzler) and in subsequent years all diesel and petrol cars will pay £140 tax, mixed fuel e.g. LPG or hybrid will pay £130 a year and electric cars nowt.
If you buy a car that is listed at over £40,000 you'll pay a premium of £310 p.a. for 5 years  - on top of the standard rate above.

Pisses me off as I currently pay £20 p.a. 

If you want to avoid tax it looks like you'll have to go electric.
