Being generally more fuel-efficient, diesel cars fall into a cheaper road tax band – which will save you a few quid every 6 or 12 months. You could even go for a car that's tax-exempt – typically electric-powered models or those with the best fuel efficiency.
Here are some to look out for:
- Nissan Leaf
- Fiat 500 TwinAir
- Fiat Punto Evo
- VW Golf 1.6TDi Bluemotion
- Toyota Prius
- Lexus CT200h
Some organisations provide special dispensation for disabled drivers, and you can find more from Motability.
Don't forget, cars made before 1 January 1973 do not need road tax.
