Wha
What did you expect, the price of a Dacia Duster?
These prices include VAT, because these are not classed as commercial vehicles in the UK. Hopefully their commercial van version and pickup will not gouge their customers as blatantly as Land Rover do with the Defender commercial price relative to the consumer version.

It’s around where I expected tbh, just specced one to about 45k but a similarly specced hilux is about 40k surely although with a couple more seats.
Plus the VAT can be reclaimed on the HiLux. Not so current Grenadier. Also all the other tax relief benefits for HiLux, not so for Grenadier.
To make sense for farmers and utility companies in the UK they need official commercial vehicle versions. That means vans and pickups and chassis/cab versions not passenger carriers unless they have enough seats to qualify. Five or six or even seven seats are just consumer SUV’s as far as HMRC are concerned.

No doubt they are after the SUV owners and private individuals wanting ‘luxury vehicles’ at a premium price initially. Or prioritising geographical areas where no such tax rules apply.

Are you saying the Utilty version with only two seats is not a commercial vehicle in terms of vat and tax relief?
It appears to be fully glazed. If it were a blind van it would be a commercial but it doesn’t indicate that it is. The rear side doors and side windows behind the B pillar would need to be sealed and blanked off to qualify for some arcane reason.
