Ford to switch to all-inclusive pricing

NEW Year price lists to be announced by Ford today will reveal the market leader has made its long-awaited switch to all-inclusive pricing. The move, following action by other makers earlier this year, confirms that the practice of quoting delivery charges as separate items is reaching the end of the road.

At this year's Birmingham International Motor Show, Ford cars displayed 'driveaway prices' and for more than a year the manufacturer has carried on the road pricing in regional advertising. The move formalises that process with Ford incorporating its £470 delivery charge, £25 fee to cover fuel and number plate costs in all quoted prices. The total figure will also include one year's vehicle excise duty (£145) making a total charge of £640.
