Should I sell my diesel car?

The UK Government once touted diesel as a green fuel that could help to cut CO2 emissions and improve air quality. However, more recent pollution research has highlighted some of the hidden dangers presented by diesel fuel, which led to the Government changing its stance.

Today, diesel cars are taxed more than other powertrains. You will also have to pay daily fees for travelling within emissions-based zones such as the ULEZ and CAZs if your diesel fails to meet Euro 6 emissions standards.

If you are regularly paying out for emissions zone charges, it’s worth thinking about making the switch to a more economical model.

However, if you have a high annual mileage, regularly use your vehicle for towing – or live in a rural area (where you don’t typically find emissions zones), it may be prudent to hang on to your old diesel, so long as there are no serious mechanical issues.

Can I sell my diesel car after 2035?

The 2035 ban will only affect the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles. Therefore, you’ll still be able to buy and sell used diesel cars without any issues.

Just bear in mind that the resale value of diesels may be adversely affected by the ban – and selling your diesel privately might also present a challenge, as market demand is expected to fall.

However, if you choose to sell to webuyanycar, you’ll always benefit from a guaranteed sale. You can sell your diesel at your local branch in under an hour.

Should I swap my diesel car for an electric vehicle?

There are numerous benefits to electric vehicle (EV) ownership, including exemption from road tax (until 2025), lower running costs and exemption from many chargeable zone fees. If you want to go green and save on car ownership costs, switching to electric motoring could be a great option.
