There are plenty of misconceptions about alternatively fuelled vehicles, but reliable information from independent sources makes it easier to find a solution that suits you.
What is a low emission vehicle?
There’s no single definition of a ‘low emission vehicle’, but there are some useful things you can use as a guide. Euro engine standards like Euro V/VI, for example, set limits for vehicle emissions such as nitrogen oxide; as a general rule, the more modern the vehicle, the higher the Euro Standard – and cleaner its engine – should be.
Air quality initiatives
Many cities across the country will be rolling out various types of low emission zone, which aim to reduce exhaust emissions by making vehicles that don’t conform to their standards pay to enter.
London is currently leading the way, with the Low Emission Zone, Congestion Charge Zone and the upcoming Ultra Low Emission Zone.
