ULEZ Expansion 2023 - It's here now and a worry if you live in or near London...
However whilst this is a concern that from August 2023 the ULEZ zone will be moving out to the boundaries of London towards the home counties, the full Renault car and LCV range can help save you money.
If you drive anywhere within the ULEZ, including the expanded area
from 29 August 2023, and your vehicle does not meet the emissions
standards, you could face a daily charge of £12.50. This includes residents of the ULEZ. However, you don't need to pay
the ULEZ charge if you are parked inside the zone and don't drive.^
Lower consumption and emissions by championing efficient and proven solutions. Renault is committed to making the purchase and use of a new vehicle increasingly affordable. We offer attractive and high-quality vehicles with reliable and effective technologies. Our vehicles are equipped with technologies shared throughout Groupe Renault and thereby benefit from all its expertise to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions.
To meet the ULEZ emissions standard, your vehicle must meet the required Euro emissions standard for your vehicle and emission type. For newer vehicles, the Euro emissions standard may be listed in section D.2 of your vehicle log book (V5C).
The ULEZ standards are:
Lorries, vans and specialist heavy vehicles (all over 3.5 tonnes Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW)) and buses, minibuses and coaches (all over 5 tonnes GVW) do not need to pay the ULEZ charge. They will need to pay the LEZ charge if they do not meet the LEZ emissions standard.
At Renault, we are committed to supporting enviromentally our customers on their journey
As you can see from the map that the new ULEZ zone is coming closer to our branches, and we are perfectly placed to help you save money with your motoring or business mileage. We believe in sustainable mobility for all, and that’s why we have had a range of electric vehicles on the market for ten years now and a range of compliant petrol and diesel engined vehicles also.
Our latest E-TECH Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles enable reduced emissions and fuel consumption6. You can select pure electric mode which can be switched on when in and around town and especially when doing the school run.
Our 100% electric vehicle range includes the award-winning Renault ZOE. Offering zero tailpipe emissions, and up to 245 miles of range7. Although all these technologies are available, the first step on the journey to improve air quality is to look at our own driving habits. Whether it is not using a vehicle on short journeys where possible, or just turning your engine off when not moving we all have a part to play.
Not wishing to brag, but last year we also won the Best Value Brand in the 2022 Auto Trader Awards and they said this about our brand "This ability to run a brand new car with all the benefits that brings
for – often – less than the price of a used example of a more mainstream
one is a huge attraction
