That would normally be returned to your employer, although you can ask for the car as part of your package for redundancy. But there is no automatic right to the car.
When you are restructured and lose the car, but keep your job, you can negotiate compensation. But redundancy is entirely dependent on what your contract says about the way payments are calculated. So the usual clauses will provide for weeks of compensation based on salary. You certainly can argue that the loss of the car is an issue in compensation, but if the contract is clear on the method of calculation, then you may not. But certainly ask, and they may agree
I agree, your employer will be feeling some guilt about redundancy so use that to your advantage
