Only Electric Cars To Be Exempt from London Congestion Charge
Electric cars are likely to be the only vehicles to escape London’s congestion charge from next year if new emission recommendations are accepted by Mayor Boris Johnson.
About 19,000 vehicles, mainly with small diesel engines, escape the £10-a-day levy as their engines emit less than 100 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre.
But from July the levels are to be slashed to less than 75g of CO2 per kilometre, and at present only all-electric and some hybrid cars can achieve this. Owners of cars that meet today’s levels will have a sunset period of two years before they lose their exempt status.
