As of November 9 there is no longer any grant available for the purchase of PHEVs like the Countryman, I got £2,500 off the price of the car when I bought in summer 2017. Moreover the deliveries are being delayed because all cars need to go through the new emissions standards ("WLTP") following the VW emissions scandal. The tests for PHEV emissions are also totally changed and differentiated from other engine types by doing 2 tests and taking the average result; 1. running it with a full battery to depletion, and 2. running the engine with no battery. Taking the average is kind of meaningless (why not just disclose both results?) but I suppose it creates a single-figure comparison. All cars are going to get much worse results under this WLTP than they did under the discredited predecessor. Wonder how PHEVs will end up faring, if the CO2 emissions go up then could be impact on tax, my car is 49gm/km, but even if it increases up to 100gm/km it is only £95 a year.
