The end of tax exemption for older cars might not lead to effective CO2 reductions
However, the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) states that this measure will not be effective, because owners of such cars will face difficulties when they try to sell these cars. Older, dirtier vehicles will be unattractive to potential buyers, and so will have lower trade-in values. This will make these cars more likely to be scrapped than sold, thus not really reducing the UK's CO2 output figures, NFDA claims.
