Ford seeks tax incentives for ‘green’ cars

Ford has asked the government for tax incentives to encourage consumers to
buy ‘green’ cars, according to reports.

Executives from the car manufacturer were understood to have met with prime
minister Tony Blair to look into ways to get more eco-friendly cars on the road,
which would emit lower levels of carbon dioxide.

Ford UK MD and chairman Roelant de Waard told The Times that
exempting alternative fuel cars from excise tax was a ‘very viable option’ for
the government.
