SMMT response to the Autumn Budget 2017

  • Diesel- pump

While Chancellor Philip Hammond focused on the more than £500 million investment in pushing electric auto use, for many drivers his plans for diesels had been causing far more concern in the weeks leading up to yesterday's Budget.

"We feel the Chancellor has taken the correct route in holding off on any further taxations for diesel drivers, and this move should help those dealers who rely on high value diesel models".

A feared tax on the fuel did not materialise, with Philip Hammond instead unveiling plans to ramp up vehicle excise duty (VED) by one band on sales of new diesel cars that do not meet what he called the "latest emissions" standards. But a auto industry body said it would take time to bring forward the latest technology and the measure would do nothing to decrease the number of older, more polluting vehicles on Britain's roads.

Local authorities in England with the "most challenging" pollution problems will be able to use the fund to support households and businesses to adapt as measures to improve air quality are implemented.

The diesel supplement on company auto tax is also going up by 1% - which is expected to raise £70 million next year. Diesel cars meeting Euro 6 standards are already classed as low-emission for the purposes of the London Ultra Low Emission Zone doe to come into force in 2019.

The changes only affect cars, leaving, as Mr Hammond put it "white van man or woman" unaffected.

Hawes also complained that manufacturers weren't being given enough time, saying: 'Manufacturers are investing heavily in the latest low-emission technology, however, it's unrealistic to think that we can fast-track the introduction of the next generation of clean diesel technology -which takes years to develop - in just four months'. 'This budget will do nothing to remove the oldest, most polluting vehicles from our roads in the coming years'.

"The side effect of today's announcement however might be that it might encourage some to stay with their older diesel vehicle", he added.

Overall, though, the RAC said the Chancellor had chosen a "relatively light touch".

The Chancellor is scrapping the fuel duty rise for both petrol and diesel vehicles that is scheduled for April next year - expected to save a typical driver around £160 a year.
