London Congestion Charges based on CO2 emissions for Vans?

Are you asking about the LEZ, which is based on particulate emissions, or the new CO2 emission based congestion charge?

If it’s the congestion charge then I don’t think there’s any need to worry about it – as far as I can see it will only apply to cars and to double cab pick-ups. The only change for vans is that there’ll be a £2 reduction for vehicles which meet Euro 5 standards.

  1. They’re wrong Jason, the new higher rates only apply to category M1 vehicles (that’s cars to you) and “N1 utility vehicles” (double cab pickups). Small vans are category N1(i) even if they’re based on a car and larger vans can’t fall into the “N1 utility vehicle” class unless they’ve got 2 rows of seats and a pickup body.

    Why is it that every time you ask for guidance from the ‘authorities’ you’re given the wrong answer? Whoever it is – the council, VOSA, the police, HMRC, whoever; you can almost guarantee that whatever response you get will be rubbish.
