Car tax is often relatively cheap, so it can be easy to overlook when working out running costs. But for cars that emit a high level of CO2 emissions and were registered after 1 March 2001, car tax can be expensive – costing as much as £580 per year. And if you buy a heavily polluting new car, you could face a bill of more than £2,000 in the first year. So, if you’re after a new motor with free car tax, it needs to be either Electric (those emitting 0g/km of CO2) of all ages Emitting up to 100g/km of CO2 and registered between 1 March 2001 and 31 March 2017 With that in mind we’ve searched ..read more

London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone, for example, has an entry charge of £12.50 for all petrol cars built before September 2009 and diesel cars built before September 2015. That covers a lot of cars currently on UK roads. But ..read more

Along with September, March is usually the busiest month of the year for new car registrations. As buyers rush to have their new car on the latest number plate – this year it’s a ’20’ registration – it’s usually a hectic month for car dealers.   Though showrooms remained busy at the beginning of the month, the impact of coronavirus took its toll by the end of March. And because dealers are included in the range of retail outlets being forced to close their doors, many people couldn’t place their orders or pick up their new cars before showrooms closed.   Howeve ..read more
