Of course it will , massive production and infrastructure in place , it would be rude not to .

Electric infrastructure that will cost billions , dig up the effing roads Again , the mega cost of renewing batteries then the future oh they're toxic to dispose of TAX....

Continental has produced a 48V catalytic converter.

Oh and have you seen the government lately .

It's all looking glum , Suckdick Khan with his London Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) next April .

Cheap second hand cars from London !

Only Euro 6 escapes which is unfair as Euro 5 has dpf but they're more focusing on NOx hence the 6.

More ULEZ to be rolled out .

Local councils enpowered to tackle air quality , higher parking charges for older dervs .

Reform to the VED wanted to tax the older more polluting dervs off the road as only currently CO2 based .

And yet I can drive around in my 2.7TT Guzzler which even pre-dates egrs and has just Cats... for a mere £280ish a year... pumping out a huge amount of C02 compared to the Passat...

Lol. Funny old world. Not that I’m complaining. What’s £195/£280 a year really. Not a lot considering what I waste on other poo. Takeaways etc.

If they will start to attack older cars, you £280 tax might change as well, no one knows. Was it like everything registered up to 1st March 2000 is in these two bands: £280 and don't remember second one. And both petrol and diesel going into them?

Sorry that's 1st March 2001, so everything up to it is in two bands, I'm in the same boat then, 1st registered on 29th March 2000. But I'm paying £21.43 p/m. How's that comes? Total is less than £280 then

Euro 4 lol.

N1 classification on the V5, but due to mid seats, windows and 4motion i can fulfil the dual purpose vehicle classification so i get away with car speed limits, but the N1 commercial class probably helps :-??

It blew ridiculously low last mot, with the new cam should be even better.

Its funny because the M1 classified vans pay more road tax, an awful lot more in 05 and 06 for essentially the same running gear.

Its got the turbo off the 174 engine, cant wait to remap it over 200 maybe even 220 and 500nm torque :hyst

I know its not fair lol.

The last round of tax hikes were on the car driver. I clearly remember Hammond saying that they were not going after the white van man. So it has little to do with year, spec or age. If you drive a van you are exempt on these latest hikes, but in 2019 surely for London watch this space!
