Is now the time, to go Electric??
- Drivers of older, more polluting vehicles will now have to pay almost twice as much to drive in central London.
- T-Charge will affect petrol and diesel vehicles registered before 2006.
- T-Charge covers the same area as the existing congestion charge zone, bumping up the cost to £21.50 for those affected.
- According to the mayor’s office, will affect 34,000 motorists a month.
What is Changing?
From Monday 23 October, there is a £10 daily fee for those who drive more polluting vehicles in the congestion charging zone, on top of the existing £11.50 congestion charge.
Vehicles that do not comply with the Euro IV exhaust standard must pay the £10 charge.
The standard defines emissions limits for cars, vans, buses, coaches and lorries. Most vehicles registered before 2006 are likely to exceed these limits.
The zone will operate between 07:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday.
