New petrol and diesel cars should not subsidise electric vehicles

The UK Government is considering the introduction of a ‘feebate’ scheme,which would see the cost of petrol and diesel cars increase and the extra funds used to subsidise the prices of new electric vehicles.

This would see the cost of new cars with internal combustion engines likely increase by between £500 and £1,500.

Such a move would penalise those who can’t afford electric cars currently, or don’t have the facilities to charge them.

It’s unfair and is another unnecessary tax being slapped on motorists.
