London Congestion Charge exempt cars
The London Congestion Charge applies to a central area of the capital during the week and makes taking a car into the heart of London an expensive business.
Naturally there is the fuel you’ll pay for, as well as parking, but you’ll also have to budget for the £11.50 charge. It doesn’t matter for how long or how far you travel in the zone, the fee is applicable in full regardless.
Up until June 2013, any hybrid vehicle, along with the greenest petrol and diesel cars, was exempt from the Congestion Charge. Since then, a new limit was introduced so that only cars emitting 75g/km of CO2 or less were eligible for exemption, and the new rule meant there were significantly fewer models that escaped the charge. We’ve had a look through the remaining cars that are still exempt and picked out the 10 best cars you can currently buy that beat the London Congestion Charge.
