Vauxhall Joins the Congestion Charge-free Party

As you know, the rules of the London Congestion Charge have been revised and now all Euro-5 compliant vehicles emitting under 100 grams of Co2 per km are exempted from this. Vauxhall is taking advantage of this, offering eight models that are eligible for the free entry in the congestion area.

At the entry-level of Vauxhall’s Congestion Charge-free range, we find the Corsa 1.3 CDTi ecoFlex Start/Stop three-door S model, which emits 94 grams of CO2 per km.

“Driving a sub-100g/km car like the Corsa will also save you even more in Congestion Charge than before, since from today the fee rises to £12 if paid by midnight on the charging day after travel or £10 if paid in advance or on the day of travel, meaning that drivers commuting in to the zone on a daily basis could pay as much as £60 per week,”
stated the press release.

The company also offers seven more sub-100g/km Corsa ecoFlex vehicles, with the vehicles coming with three or five doors and offering different trims - all of them emit less than 95 g/km.

We’re committed to offering our customers the most efficient and economical cars in the UK,” said Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall’s Managing Director. “Not only do our Corsa ecoFLEX models ease the pain of ever increasing fuel costs, but some models are now set to save London commuters even more expense. We also welcome Boris Johnson’s announcement that electric vehicles will be eligible for GVD, which will include our Ampera E-REV when it goes on sale in early 2012.
