London Congestion Charge exempt cars
For some motorists, driving in London can be very expensive due to the captial's Congestion Charge. It costs £11.50 per day to drive into the city centre, which can easily amount to thousands of pounds per year if you use the city streets on a daily basis. In the past, hybrid vehicles were exempt from the London Congestion Charge, but the rules quickly changed to only allow vehicles emitting less than 100g/km of CO2 to travel in the zone for free.
However, at the end of June 2013 the rules changed again. Now only vehicles with CO2 emissions below 75g/km can pass through the city free of charge. Although more qualifying cars are on the way, at the moment there's not much to choose from thanks to the new more stringent regulations. Nevertheless, here are our picks of the best ten Congestion Charge beaters currently on sale.
