Thoughts and news about the automotive industry

Not that long ago, the idea that luxury or super car makers would build sport utility vehicles (SUV) as part of their range was met with horror. There was talk from purists that the exclusive brands would be selling out to meet popular trends. Well, they all did it, or are doing it, anyway and that includes the famous British badge of Bentley. Enter the Bentayga. First introduced in 2016, the Bentayga styling was not entirely lauded by fans, but that hasn't stopped it becoming the biggest seller among its direct competitors. Over time some 20,000 have been sold. It has been a stunning success for Bentley and in 2019 accounted for forty-five per cent of the company’s global sales. Now a new model has just been introduced and this time it looks fabulous. The luxury SUV has received a major facelift with a new exterior design plus the very latest onboard technology and an even more cosseting cabin. This new Bentayga is significantly revised both inside and out. Combining the abilities of a performance grand tourer, a luxury limousine, a spacious family car and an off-roader, this latest Bentley really can do it all. The makers insist that no other car can offer the breadth of ability to rival the Bentayga.

STOCK FINANCE SERVICES How Do I Get The VAT Back On a Car Imported From The UK? People buying cars from the UK who wish to export them beyond the EU need to know how this reclaim process actually works. Not all UK dealers are set up to do this and some will ask you to cover the VAT until it has been returned from the UK Tax office. But you can buy your car without having to pay for the VAT at all. This article will help you to understand the options available to you and the best way for you to buy your car tax free from the UK stress free. Many people we have met over the years have bought cars from the UK and never recovered the VAT. Perhaps because they didn’t know how to or the advice they had been given wasn’t very accurate, or the people who promised to reclaim it for them didn’t deliver on their promise and so it was never approved by the UK Tax office. This is always disappointing to hear and we hope this article will help to stop these issues from happening.

Many drivers are not yet turned on in an automotive sense by the idea of electric cars. For some, the technology is not trusted, especially those who drive longer distances, others think the EV infrastructure is not yet ready for a mainstream influx of electric-only vehicles on our roads. Further, for many, it is simply not a practical choice. Certainly EV technology is progressing quickly and, especially for urban drivers, is the solution for cleaner greener motoring. Fortunately there is a solution for those who would like better economy and lower emissions but who are not yet ready for the full electric experience: Hybrids.

The 29th January 2016 was a sad day in the lives of those enthusiasts who love to drive off-road because that was the day production of the legendary Land Rover Defender ended, for good. It also caused a stir among the farming community whose fondness for the Land Rover marque dated back sixty-seven years when the first Series 1 hit the fields of Britain. But, alas, progress will not be halted. It is said that the company ceased production of this vehicle because the engines would not meet future European standards. There is no mention as to why other suitable diesel units from other vehicles in the Jaguar Land Rover range could not have been engineered in but it seems clear that Land Rover had plans to bring this 4x4 into the 21st Century with a brand new model. The new Defender is very nice and very, very accomplished off-road but has more in common with the up-market Discovery than with the old Defender 90.
