London Congestion Charge exempt cars
For some motorists, driving in London can be very expensive due to the captial's Congestion Charge. It can cost you up to £10 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, big hybrid vehicles were exempt from the London Congestion Charge, with the rules quickly changing to only allow vehicles producing than 100g/km in CO2 emissions to travel in the zone for free.
However, from the end of June 2013 the rules changed again, allowing only vehicles with CO2 emissions below 75g/km to pass through the city free of charge. Although more cars are on the way (like the electric Tesla Model S), 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.
