Let’s take a look at how the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zone will affect London drivers and how emission free chauffeur services can help.
From April 2019 a new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ELUZ) is set to be introduced to central London. Geographically wise, it covers the same area as the existing congestion charging zone. While certain vehicles will be exempt, most will have to meet new emissions standards or face additional charges.
What is the aim of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ELUZ)?
In today’s eco-conscious world, changes are made, almost daily it feels sometimes, to legislation in an effort to protect the environment and our health. In metropolitan cities such as London, air pollution is one of the most significant factors affecting the city’s residents. It’s become so bad that it is estimated nearly ten thousand people in London die each year as a result of exposure to air pollution over a long period of time. The tighter emissions standards are expected to improve air quality sufficiently to have a real impact on the health of Londoners.
How much might ELUZ charges cost me?
For some drivers, the charges could mount up to as much as £4,500 a year, which is a very significant cost for anyone. However, it may still be cheaper than replacing your car entirely or having emission reducing technology fitted.
How to avoid charges
In a nutshell, drive a vehicle that meets the new standards. Of course, that’s not practical for everyone, as the cost of changing your vehicle, or indeed a fleet of company cars might not be financially viable. While the utopia would be that everyone cycles or walks to work and to client meetings, for example, the reality, however, is not always as straightforward.
Many chauffeur services have already made the switch and offer zero emission vehicles to their clients, and Tesla chauffeur London based services are becoming more popular. Not only are they popular for their emissions standards but they also offer a whole host of other benefits.
The advantages of using a zero-emission Tesla chauffeur service
If you’re looking for a Tesla chauffeur London based EV GO offer emission-free travel in both the Model S and Model X. As well as being assured that you’re doing your bit for the environment, there are other benefits to using a chauffeur service which has Teslas in its fleet.
Tesla offers stylish luxury with as much technology as you could need. Its very design has both the passenger and driver at its heart with comfort and convenience key considerations.
As well as keeping down potential emissions charges there are also times when it simply makes good sense to use a chauffeur service. If you’ve had a long day, or flight, for example, then it’s likely you will be too tired to drive safely. Similarly, using a chauffeur service will allow you additional time to work while you travel.
