Petrol and diesel cars set to provide owners with valuable nest egg
As we know, plans to stop the sale of new diesel and petrol vehicles in 2040 have been introduced, but for this isn’t all bad as many current diesel and petrol cars will start to appreciate in value come 2040.
Families can begin to look at the positives; today’s future classic cars could be used as valuable nest eggs or pension pots for the future, industry experts predict.
Simon Hill, managing director, said car owners who invest wisely and look after their vehicles could well benefit financially.
He added: “As a result of the ban, petrol and diesel cars will appreciate rather than depreciate in value in the future, providing their owners with money which perhaps can be passed on to children as a legacy or put into a pension pot.
“Luxury cars such as a 1960’s Ferrari or an Aston Martin Vantage from 1970’s will command a higher price in 2040, but cars such as the 1989 Peugeot 205 GTI or a 1989 Mercedes SL Class are also appreciating in value significantly.”
Among the other makes which experts forecast will appreciate in the next 23 years are the Austin Mini Cooper, VW Golf GTI MK1, Ford Capri, BMW M3 E30, Jaguar E-Type SIII, and the original Audi TT.
Simon added: “It will not be until 2060 that diesel and petrol cars will stop being used as everyday cars. This means that many of the cars people are driving around in today will become collectible. Rather than worry about vehicle values falling when the ban comes in to force, drivers need to ask themselves what their car might be worth in 2060.”
Simon also advised that people shouldn’t be worrying about switching to an electric vehicle just yet. Although infrastructure for EV’s will be in cities by 2040, the rural economy will still rely on diesel and petrol for travel.
Simon explained: “Around 30% of households will struggle to run an EV due to electricity supply – many houses will need rewiring because existing circuit boards will not be able to hold the sufficient ampage for a charging point at their house.”

I wanted to say thanks for all your help throughout the process of getting my new Tesla 90D. From the start of the first call you demonstrated a perfect balance of being friendly and helpful while fast and efficient. The way you kept me informed each step of the way was exemplary - telling me what you would do, what would happen next and then confirming when it was done.
I've recommended you already and will continue to- well done and thank you for all your help.
Thank you for a quick and easy order process. Sorted out in a day. My wife is very much looking forward to her new car.
Thanks very much for the great friendly and informative service thus far. It's been a joy dealing with you, you've been clear and always willing to assist and clarify my queries. Making the car buying experience more relaxed and enjoyable.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance over the last few years and in particular in dealing with the sourcing of my most recent car.
Having dealt with you to source my previous 2 cars, going back to 2010, I was well aware of your high level of customer care and attention to detail which is very important to me.
During the period of my previous lease, you also regularly monitored my situation, and I therefore had no hesitation to use you to provide my replacement car.
Once again, the service and support you provided was first class, and at all times I was kept informed as to the progress of my order, and also advised regarding the return of my existing car, although this wasn’t actually part of your responsibilities.
I have in the past recommended you to both colleagues and clients, and I will continue to do so based upon your ongoing excellent service and the feedback I also get from others.
Thank you so much for organising a car for my fastidious neighbour and dealing with him in such a professional and patient manner- he was really impressed!
I also want to thank you for the professional and friendly way you have dealt with the contract for my own car which is due for delivery shortly.
Byron was professional and knowledgeable throughout and nothing was too much trouble. Can't speak highly or recommend him enough!
Peter provided exceptional service and provided me with the Clubman at an amazing price.
I highly recommend Total Motion if you're looking to lease a vehicle at a great price. A very friendly team that were always happy to help me find the perfect solution.
Thanks a lot!
Thank you for sourcing us a commercial company vehicle at a price we felt was affordable and competitive along with the added maintenance package.
You are someone we can trust explicitly and whose knowledge of the motor leasing trade second to none, he was able to find a great discount on our vehicle which other leasing companies could not.
The whole buying process was quick and easy and John was able to talk us through the whole process in advance so we knew what to expect.
All in all, John is a great person to work with and we will have no hesitation in referring all future car leasing needs to him.
Thought the A7 was a good car but this is just a different league!!
I feel like a super star in it!!!
Thank you for managing to find a physical car with the exact specifications my wife wanted, something no other company could achieve. Also, for having patience with a very awkward and hard to please customer! Can't recommend this company highly enough! Fantastic from beginning to end.
