As in most aspects of our lives, tax is on the increase. On 1 April 2019 VED (Vehicle Excise Duty) rateson cars, vans and motor cycles will increase in line with the RPI (Retail Price Index).
Then from 6 April 2019, company car tax will be based on WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised LightVehicle Emissions Test Procedure). This will increase company car tax for most drivers. Any vehicleregistered before 6 April 2019 will continue to use the current NEDC (New European Driving CycleTest Procedure).
With this in mind, we looked at the two alternatives that are available for drivers.
Hybrid cars are a half way point between conventional vehicles and electric vehicles. Theyhave a conventional engine, an electric motor and a battery. They use all three sources togenerate power.
Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular as businesses and individuals look forgreener alternative for travel.
