Still time to benefit from Citroën’s 'Go Green & Clean Allowance’

Citroën’s 'Go Green & Clean Allowance’ of up to £3,500 is still available to help LCV operators affected by changes to the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) scheme.

The 'Go Green & Clean Allowance’ aims to help to LCV operators affected by the changes that come into effect in just over a month’s time.

From 3 January 2012, the LEZ scheme will include; larger vans between 1,205kg unladen weight and up to 3,500kg gvw; minibuses of less than 5,000kg gvw; ambulances and motorcaravans that are all registered before January 1, 2002, which do not meet Euro 3 emissions standards.

Registered keepers of vehicles potentially affected by the extension of the LEZ scheme will have received a letter from Transport for London (TfL) to notify them of the changes, which will prevent them from using their vehicles in the LEZ, unless they pay a charge of £100 per day.

Scott Michael, Citroën UK’s commercial vehicle operations manager, said: “The Citroën ‘Go Green & Clean Allowance' is yet another practical demonstration of the brand’s affordable, environmental policy.

“It provides a subsidy of up to £3,500 towards a new, low emission, fuel efficient Citroën LCV and plays an important part in supporting TfL’s London air quality improvement programme, while customers benefit from greater operational, financial and efficiency gains.”

The subsidy towards a new Citroën LCV is available to any operator who can produce the above letter from TfL, referring to a vehicle that was registered before January 1, 2002, and which has a current Vehicle Excise Duty licence and an MOT.
