Light commercial vehicle (LCV) drivers in London will need to meet new CO2 emissions standards from January 2012 and Citroen has unveiled a number of incentives to help them go green.
Under the Low Emission Zone (LEZ) in the capital, motorists whose vans do not comply to a minimum of Euro 3 standards will be required to pay £100 per day to use them in the city.
Scott Michael, Citroen UK’s commercial vehicle operations manager, explained that many of the models in the automaker’s range already meet the required emissions output.
He added that van leasing customers may be interested in the LCVs from the manufacturer because they also boast excellent fuel efficiency.
As a result of the new rules coming into force next year, Citroen is offering drivers an allowance of up to £3,500 to acquire a new van that complies with the LEZ.
Yesterday (April 4th), transport secretary Philip Hammond pledged an additional £5 million to the mayor of London Boris Johnson in a bid to help improve air quality in the capital.
