12th September 2017
It’s just around the corner; on the 23rd of October 2017, the ‘Toxicity Charge’ will be implemented in London, with sights set on a cleaner environment for the capital city.
With the existing Congestion Charge having its 14th anniversary this year, the £10 T-Charge will double up with existing legislation, insisting that those who own the most polluting vehicles pay an additional fee for driving in London’s most congested areas. Numerous cameras, equipped with license plate recognition technology, will police the new scheme – so, compliance really isn’t optional.
Vehicles which don’t meet Euro 4 emissions standards (generally those registered before 2006) will be eligible to pay the T-Charge, which rolls into a significant total of £21.50 when combined with the current Congestion Charge, applicable Monday to Friday, 7am – 6pm, in the majority of central London. Hitting drivers firmly in the wallet, the new rules serve as a deterrent for driving cars that produce high amounts of CO2, with the eventual aim of removing them from our roads altogether.
If you discover that the T-Charge is likely to affect you and your motoring needs, it might be time to reconsider the car that you drive. Thankfully, the Audi Scrappage Incentive has just been launched, helping to get polluting vehicles off the road and replaced with efficient new models – for less than you might think.
Offering a cash incentive of £2,000 to £8,000 when you trade in an old diesel car for a new Audi, the scheme will accept any passenger car as trade-in, so long as it’s of Euro 1 to Euro 4 emissions standard, and first registered before 2010. It’s a fantastic way to get behind the wheel of a new vehicle, but don’t delay – you must order your new Audi by 31st of December 2017, with registration taking place by 31st of March 2018.
