Press car license plate rotation

Asked by James Wilson

I have just read the latest reviews in CarsGuide of the Mercedes-Benz C200 Coupe, Toyota HiLux Workmate, Infiniti Q70 S and Mercedes-Benz 200D and wonder why these vehicles are wearing Victorian numberplates that are well over three years old. How can they be recently released models? I know how old the numberplates are because we bought my wife's Suzuki SX4 in October 2014 and the new rego is similar.

There is nothing sinister or underhand here. Car companies rotate their plates on to their newest models to make life a little easier for their fleet administrators.
