Nearly new, 19 plate cars are selling at big discounts right now as dealers had to pre-register a large number of vehicles before new emissions regulations were enforced on 1st September.
With 69 plate cars now on sale with discounts already applied, this means the 19 plate cars are now selling at discounts of up to 40%, with several thousand pounds knocked off the list prices to clear stocks from forecourts.
With a new emissions test cycle taking effect, cars not meeting the standards can no longer be sold as ‘new’ – in spite of the fact that many of them only have a few delivery miles on the clock.
On top of this, sales fell in August, so dealers have additional pressure to meet their sales targets this month.
Online car retailer Buyacar.co.uk reported savings of over 25% across a range of vehicles with only a few miles on the clock, including models from Audi, Citroen, Peugeot, Fiat and Volkswagen.
The biggest saving was on an Audi A8, with a cash saving of over £30,000 on a vehicle with just 11 miles on the clock.
If you are in the market for a new car, now is clearly a good time to be looking for a bargain.
