I was also told MT 328i will not have EFV rebate due to some sort of weight issue of the car.
Anybody know what's going on?
EPD will revise the EFV rebate criteria at the end of this mth, so all importers are holding station at this moment.
328i manual is not approved for EFV rebate as it's standard kerb weight is 1,505kg, which meant it's fuel consumption is too high for it's EFV weight band. The 328iA has standard kerb weight of 1,530kg, & it falls one tier above the manual version (1,516-1,766kg band).
EPD just posted the EFV requirements for cars register after 2013 April. Do you think the 328i will meet the new requirement?
