You just need a euro 4 petrol car/van or euro 6 diesel car/van.

So it's not going to be expensive to avoid paying the charge..... that's a 2007 or newer petrol van or car and you pay nothing.

I'd still be pi$$ed if I had to buy a new vehicle though....


On another brexit issue, good news on how the ports will operate if we have a no deal exit.

It is scandalous...

I occasionally have to drive my 2004 reg Peugeot 2.0 hdi-engined Partner. It sailed through its emissions at its MOT in Dec '18 so for the time being it can still be driven around Devon and Cornwall without the squeaky greens flinging their wrath at me.

Though there are a few drawbacks to living in rural England, I thanks the good Lord that is don't have to put up with this kind of stealth tax...YET!

I cannot faill to be flabbergasted by the 'softly softly' sneaky implementation of this ULEZ.
He has managed to keep this pretty much under the radar of all media.
This ULEZ charge is a per day thing ...........
So entering the zone at 10 to midnight and leaving at 10 past ...incurrs 2 x £20 = £40 charge.
I am sure there are thousands of motorists out there not fully aware of the full impact of this poison dwarfs plans.hE is heading towards bringing London to a no go area for so many businesses.
Sadly , even if he is ousted at the next election , I believe a new mayor will just carry on with all the changes and just keep blaming his predecessor . Like Boris and Ken.,

TFL is putting the blame on the humble car driver now , having allowed buses and black cabs to pollute away to their hearts content for donkey's years.

Here's another rant .....why are black cabs exempt and free ?
The money they charge to just sit still in traffic is beyond racketeering.
They are not public services and contribute massively to the overall congestion problem and emmisions problem.

London's ULEZ will cover the area within the north and south circular in autumn 2021.

The Eu and the UK have got it in for Diesels at the mo, the economics are all against big petrol and diesel guzzling 4x4's which the majority are not used to there full off road capabilities and only possibly switch into 4 wheel drive on the odd occasion. The markets are reducing for new vehicles as people are unsure on the future in cars as apparently by 2040 they are being fazed out! The new wonder market was China but that sector is slowing for new car purchases!

But Hey Ho lets blame Brexit!

Nissan didn't even mute that as a major reason, and they will still be building cars here with no redundancies until it becomes financially unsound, not Brexit

No they haven't, they have just decided not to start producing one of their models here which is currently made in Japan and shipped over here. They will still continue to produce the models they already do here

I see in the news that Nissan has decided to move production away from UK..
Toyota wants the UK to take the EU's exit deal.
Jag LR extending shutdown due to Brexit.


Glad I don't work in this sector as the future looks bleak ATM. Why would any manufacturer build cars in the UK if tariffs are imposed when they get exported to the EU?...
