Why do I get the feeling we'll hear a lot more about which cars qualify as "Freemen" soon?
AYGO AND DIESEL YARIS JOIN PRIUS AS "FREEMEN OF LONDON"
Low emissions qualify for new congestion charge exemption
Changes to the Central London Congestion Charge announced today open the way for even more Toyota vehicles to travel in the capital for free. From 27 October, cars in bands A and B for Vehicle Excise Duty – those emitting less than 120g/km of carbon dioxide – will receive a 100 per cent discount.
As a master of small car design and clean engine technology, Toyota is well placed to benefit from the adjustment. All Aygo and diesel-powered Yaris models will join the hybrid power Prius as charge-busting vehicles.
In all there are 35 Toyota models that are charge-exempt, when different body styles, transmissions and specifications are taken into account. And the even better news is that Toyota's product strategy promises more low emissions models in the not-too-distant future.
