The Chancellor's Budget Has Positive News for the Motor Industry, Says Northumberland Dealer

The Chancellor's Budget is good news for the motor industry, says Northumberland dealer.


Cramlington, Northumberland -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2015 -- For most motorists the headline from this week's Budget announcements will have been the continuing freeze in fuel duty and the scrapping of September's increase. But there were other measures that are positive for the motor industry too.

Company car drivers will see a rise in tax of three per cent by 2019, but the rate will be lower for ultra-low-emissions vehicles as the government tries to encourage business users in a switch to cleaner motoring.

George Osborne also announced a £100 million investment in driverless car technology to help British firms stay competitive in what is likely to be a significant market in the future. There was a nod to the classic car scene too, with the rolling tax exemption extended to pre-1976 cars from this year.

The increase in personal allowances should put help to put more money in people's pockets, and the pension changes may well see a rush of older consumers looking to change their cars too.
