Following the Mayor of London’s recent announcement that all Euro 5 compliant cars emitting 100g/km CO2 or less will be able to enter the Congestion Charging zone free of charge from 4th January 2011; Citroën has three models that will be eligible for the 100% discount - saving London drivers around £2,500 per year.
With CO2 emissions of just 99g/km, the DS3 DStyle 99g and the New C3 Airdream+, both will be exempt from the new £10 daily charge. From 4th January, owners will be able to register their Citroën models for the Greener Vehicle Discount, which allows a 100% discount from the Congestion Charge for vehicles with CO2 emissions of 100g/km or less and that meet the Euro 5 standard for air quality. A £10 annual registration payment per car applies.
C-Zero, Citroën’s new full-electric city car, will also be eligible for the Electric Vehicle & Plug-in Electric Hybrid Vehicle 100% discount when first deliveries commence in January.
Linda Jackson, Citroën UK’s managing director commented: “Citroën continues to make significant progress in reducing emissions across its whole range with innovative new technologies and a focus on environmentally-considerate manufacturing processes. We are delighted London drivers will benefit from Citroën’s low-CO2 conventionally powered and all-electric vehicles. Our models are proof that environmentally conscious transport doesn’t mean compromising on style, comfort or driver pleasure.”
