‘212’ reg plate: What’s the best way to pay for your new wheels?

You could end up spending more for the same car depending on how you pay for it

The pandemic slowed car sales. Showrooms were shut and no-one could go anywhere anyway, so why invest in wheels? But as restrictions ease and the 212 registration plate commences, things are starting to ramp up. If you are in the market for a new car, what’s the best way to pay for it?

There were 2,767 new car registrations for the month of June: that’s more than double the same month last year when pandemic restrictions dampened spending. Some 63,867 new cars have been registered this year to date. Although that’s 20 per cent down on the same period in 2019, it’s 20 per cent up on last year.
