Number plate changes will see electric car prices fall by over £2,000 in five percent drop

Number plate changes will ensure a spate of discounts on older models with some electric cars set to fall by £2,208 on average in a 4.7 percent decline. DVLA plate launches usually lead to a dramatic boost in sales for the market with experts predicting September could be the best month for the industry in 2020 after months of lockdown.

Dealerships often sell a lot of their older stock to make room for the latest models and plates which cleaves customers able to secure great deals.
