2022.2 is my plan to buy new and I doubt that we will be all electric by then,
granted in time we defintely will be all electric but there's another Ten years to go yet.

I HOPE !!

@Ken,Gonna say 1.8 hybrid,been driving them since 06 and find them efficient, can't see myself buying new again,my current 2011 was four yrs old when i got it(2015) and it cost me 15k and i'll have it until 2021,a new one would have cost me double that but would only have got me an extra four years and like yourself i'm saving for my replacement car cos i don't want to be tied to monthly car repayments although i'll hopefully continue to save what i'm currently saving into the future,
I'd like to think i could go electric but as you say i think it's gonna be a few years yet,i want to be able to do a whole nights driving including the drive from Drog and back home again without the "fear"...or range anxiety as it's known...and then if i work 5 nights per week and constant recharging,what will the battery life be,i honestly don't think you'd get 10 yrs out of it and will the grants still be available?

Thanks fer that Hal, I was leaning toward the 1.6 petrol because in reality 'I knew no better' and I have
never driven a Hybrid or Electric car and also I dispise any type of change !
But I suppose Hybrid is the way to go and also I much prefer the bigger 1.8 engine, thanks fer the advice.

I know my plan is not the most economic plan ever, but I'm 53 and a Half now and by 2022.2 I'll be 57.
And the thought of the new 'finance free' car gives me something to look forward to.
After 2022.2 I will continue to save in the unlikely event that I make it to 2032.2, but this will be my
last New car as after 2032.2 there won't be much point in me looking fer another car to last Ten years
as I most definately wont !

I really don't fancy the idea of Electric either, I would often have young lads in the cab ask me what I think about going Electric ?
I tell 'em; "There a coming, you will be driving 'em in a few years time and I won't ! Because I'll be Fookin Dead and ya can Fookin have 'em !"

Has your bean counter ever advised you that you would pay a lot less tax if you changed your car.

The last time i spoke with her i raised that question and it's something i'll deal with,my tax liability was higher this year cos the missus practically worked full-time last year,so far this year she's only worked her normal job share hours so i'll be able to use her unused tax credits for the 2018 tax year returns(2019)...it's good to be tax efficient!!

Bit more earned income allowance next year... Don't forget any medical expenses given that you mentioned the Mrs having some treatment, etc...

Diesel.
Naw ! Diesel is a Dead Duck, the Pink 'n Fluffies are constantly lobbying against it,
and these days the Pink 'n Fluffies always get what they want.
London and Paris and 6 other major european cities already have plans in place to
eradicate the diesel engine and many more including ourselves will follow suit shortly.

So what's wrong with asking fer a birra professional advice on subjects ?
I usually Pin-point exactly whom I need to or ask advice from,
but I usually do it publicy so others may benifit also.

We've been down this path before.Same questions different day.Funny ya never asked for advice when ya stickered up yer motor.

Ya seem like the type of bloke who does what he wants despite any good advice yer given.

In case ya don't understand the new Corrolla is practically the same, perhaps even smaller than a Prius.

I didn't ask fer any advice on here about 'Stickering up' because I was totally opposed to the idea of it at First, but then a good friend of mine pointed out all the good points of it to me and I was still sceptical of it, but then he told me of his weekly intake and I was SOLD !!
