    The following information taken from a disabled motoring website implies the rules apply to ALL cars where 100% (and indeed 50%) tax reduction is being claimed. Interpretation, as always, is the key factor.
    "The new rates will only be affecting vehicles registered on or after 1st of April 2017.

    When the new road tax rates come into force as of 1st April 2017 you will still be able to claim the road tax exemption, even for the additional price for vehicles with a list price of more than £40,000 when first registered.

    It will still be claimed in the same way as below.

    To claim the exemption or reduction the vehicle must be :
    •Registered in the disabled person’s name or their nominated driver’s name.
    •It must be only be used for the disabled person’s personal needs. That means the vehicle can’t be used by the nominated driver for their own personal use.

    You can only have one vehicle tax exemption or reduction at any one time."
