Save Money Driving New 10 Plate Registration

Vehicles registered from March this year will display the new 2010 registration plate.

Vehicles registered from March this year will display the new 2010 registration plate. This means the designated age identifier is changing from '59' to '10'. Motoring.co.uk's new car database makes it easy to find great value new vehicles. Motorists can search by class, manufacturer, price, mpg, etc.

This search facility can be used in conjunction with the innovative savings calculator. This easy to use system allows motorists to compare the annual cost of running their current vehicle against a new model. Drivers may actually be able to purchase a '10' registered vehicle and reduce overall annual expenditure.

Let's consider an example. Jane drives her second generation Ford Mondeo 2.0-litre Ghia X auto 20,000 annually. Her fuel expenditure, assuming £1.13 per litre, is therefore £3,494.61 and she pays £190 road tax. This makes a total expenditure of £3,684.61. The latest fourth generation Mondeo is far more fuel efficient. Jane could therefore drive a 1.8-litre TDCI Edge, cover the same mileage, and save £1,521.08. This breaks down into a fuel saving of £1,456.08 and road tax saving of £65.

The Savings Calculator is intuitive and user friendly. Simply enter a few basic details, e.g. current vehicle, annual mileage, etc. and select a vehicle as the point of comparison. The calculator then compares the models and highlights any potential savings. These could easily prove considerable enough to justify purchasing a new vehicle.
