Congestion Charge

On 23 April 2013, the Mayor announced his decision to introduce a number of changes to the Congestion Charge scheme, following a 12-week consultation seeking the views of Londoners, businesses and key stakeholders.

The ULED will be introduced on Monday 1 July 2013 and will provide a single 100 per cent discount from the Congestion Charge for all electric vehicles and for ultra low emission cars and vans.

To qualify for the new ULED, vehicles will have to be either electric or be cars and vans that emit 75g/km or less of CO2 and meet the Euro 5 emission standard for air quality. Plug-in hybrid cars and vans have additional electric range and top speed criteria and TFL will publish a list of eligible vehicles.

Eligible vehiclesQualifying criteria
Pure electric vehiclesElectric cars, vans, lorries or quadricycles that run solely on batteries. Eligible vehicles will have the fuel type recorded as 'electric' on the V5C car registration document issued by the DVLA or be exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty because they are electrically propelled vehicles.
Ultra low emission carsPassenger cars that emit less than 75g/km of CO2, as recorded on the V5C car registration document, and meet the Euro 5 emissions standard.
Ultra low emission vansVans (light goods vehicles not exceeding 3.5 tonnes) that emit 75g/km or less of CO2 and meet the Euro 5 emissions standard.

The new ULED will replace the GVD and EVD. The GVD is closing because the increasing number of cars qualifying for the discount will erode the congestion and emissions benefits of the Congestion Charging scheme.

Vehicles registered for the Electric Vehicle Discount will be automatically transferred to the new ULED on 1 July 2013.

The GVD will close to new discount registrations with Transport for London on Friday 28 June 2013. Cars currently registered for the GVD will not meet the tighter CO2 criteria for the new ULED. However, in recognition that drivers have invested in low emission cars, the current owners of cars registered for the GVD will continue to receive a full discount for that vehicle for a further three years until 24 June 2016. This 'sunset period' for the GVD was extended from the original two year period in response to comments received in the consultation.

The ULED will incentivize use of the cleanest vehicles available. Currently only electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles meet the ULED criteria but in the future any hybrid, petrol, diesel or hydrogen car or van that became available that emitted 75g/km or less of CO2 would qualify. There are just a few cars having CO2 emissions just above the new mark of 75g/km and after LPG conversion, they do qualify for exemption too.
