On 1st April 2020 the UK tax system will start to use WLTP CO2 values to calculate road tax, replacing the NEDC values used today.
This means first-year road tax on new vehicles could rise by up to 20%, meaning a potential price increase of up to £1,285 across our range.
If you're thinking of upgrading, now is a great time to visit your local Vindis dealership to beat the price increase. We've got a wide range of new vehicles in stock and ready for immediate delivery, (and you'll get a brand new 20 plate too!) Why not book yourself in for a test drive?
For more information, please speak to a member of the team who will be happy to talk you through all of our vehicles, and advise you further.
What is WLTP?
WLTP stands for Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure. It came into effect in 2017 and replaced NEDC as the official laboratory test measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. WLTP testing reflects real driving conditions, to give a more accurate representation of your vehicle.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
The Vindis Group is delighted to launch its new online buying platform; providing you with an exciting and innovative digital experience and giving you genuine real-time buy-it-now ability across all new and used vehicles; with all our stock vehicles (and factory orders) available to buy online and from the comfort of your own home.
Our vehicle search function now provides the facility to search across all brands simultaneously, or to refine your search based on make, model, overall cash price or monthly payment. And once you’ve found your perfect vehicle, you can enquire on it, reserve it or even go through our brand new online purchase process - covering everything from part-exchange valuation to finance quotation - allowing you the full freedom and transparency of buying from the comfort of your own home.
Don’t worry, if you don’t feel comfortable purchasing online, or if you stop at any point in the journey, we can pick it up with you and help to guide you in whichever way you wish; either remotely through our digital sales team, or in any one of our Vindis Group retailers.
With major new leaps in technology can always come some challenges, and as this is a very new platform (for both Vindis and the industry) we would really appreciate your feedback (and occasionally patience) whilst we go though a short-term process of ironing out any issues with this BETA version.
We look forward to hearing from you, and hope you enjoy your online journey.
