I am thinking seriously about switching to a P.108. I need to downsize eventually but it won't happen until we no longer have our Basset because of the lack of space behind the front seats and the fact it's a hatch with a drop in. My Whippet should be able to cope with that however.


Has anybody here had first hand experience with the 108? I think I'm right in saying there's no Road Tax?

Not sure about the no road tax bit.

If the car was registered before 1st April 2017 then it's quite possible that if the CO2 emission levels were below a certain level the road tax (vehicle excise duty) could be £0 - I currently pay £20 a year for my 2014 registered diesel 2008.

Unfortunately things changed in 2017 and any car first registered after 1st April 2017 would fall in to one of the following bands

CO2 emissions First year rate Subsequent years
0 £0 £0
1-50 £10 £145
51-75 £25 £145
76-90 £105 £145
91-100 £125 £145
101-110 £145 £145
110-130 £165 £145

The only way you wouldn't have to pay £145 a year road tax from year 2 would be by having a car with 0 CO2 emissions

All figures "pinched" from https://www.theaa.com/driving-advice/driving-costs/car-tax

edit - sorry, the table won't format correctly

My wife had a 108 until about 6 months ago, and my son has it now. It was a great little car, still going strong and no, she did not pay road tax on her model which was purchased about 5 years ago.

As Dugdale states, if you want free/low road tax go for a 108 registered before 1st April 2017

My Toyota C-HR hybrid was registered 1st March 2017 on a 17 plate and was zero road tax, the only reason I didn't get a new one as it was because the RT was £135 (£10 reduction off the for beng dual fuel)

So I have replaced it with a 66 plate petrol 2008 GT-line which costs £20 road tax.

Only way to get zero road tax on a new car is to go fully electric so nissan leaf, kia e-niro or Tesla, which shouldn't be an issue as you do small miles, that said the initial purchase price, I was going for a Kia e-niro but it was £30k+!!!

Thanks all for the feedback. I'll have to make sure I don't get into having to pay road tax when the time comes, but given the current trade in figure for my 2008, a replacement 108 would be older in any case. I want to do this with minimal cost. And as said, it won't happen until we no longer have our Basset who is in his 11th year now. I currently pay £30 road tax which was better than the £130 I was paying for the first 2008!
