Ultra Low Emissions Zone

OUR ELECTRIC VEHICLES AREN'T TOO KEEN ON CHARGES | #ULEZREADY

At Glyn Hopkin, we offer a wide range of ULEZ exempt vehicles including: Nissan LEAF , Nissan e-NV200, Renault Zoe and Renault Twizy.

These vehicles are also exempt from the Congestion charge too.



WHAT IS ULEZ?

On 8 April 2019, the first Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) comes into effect in the same area as central London’s existing Congestion Charge Zone. Cars, vans and other vehicles coming into the zone need to meet stringent emission standards or pay a daily charge of £12.50. 

From 25 October 2021, the area will expand to the inner London area bounded by the North and South Circular roads. Birmingham follows suit with plans for their own Clean Air Zone (CAZ) from 2020. Is it time for an EV?

HOW WILL IT AFFECT YOU?

Whether the ULEZ affects you, depends on the Euro Emissions Standard of your car. However, exemptions will apply*. Generally speaking, Petrol Euro4+ vehicles from about 2005 and Diesel Euro6+ from about Sept 2015 will be compliant.

If your vehicle doesn’t meet the standards, you will have to pay a daily charge of £12.50 for entering the zone, this being in addition to the congestion charge**. Unlike the congestion charge, the ULEZ will be in operation 7 days a week, 24 hrs a day, all year round. So it might be worth considering your options.
