Drive electric with Renault

Ultra-Low Emission Zone

Renault ULEZ

What is the ULEZ?

The Ultra-Low Emission Zone is being put in place across London to combat air pollution with an aim to improve air quality in the city.

The Ultra-Low Emission Zone operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year, covering the same area of central London as the Congestion Zone. Put in place to help improve air quality, heavy-polluting vehicles must pay daily charges when entering the area. 

 

As Renault Z.E. vehicles emit no emissions whilst driving, they are exempt from any charges — including the Congestion Zone charges, once the vehicle is registered with Transport For London.

How much does it cost?

Daily charges apply every day to vehicles that do not meet the ULEZ standards. The Congestion Charge is separate and also applies to non-zero emission capable vehicles.
  • Daily ULEZ charge - £12.50 for most vehicle types up to and including 3.5 tonnes
  • Daily heavy vehicle ULEZ charge - £100 for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes 
  • Daily Congestion Charge  - £11.50

 

The scheme operates from midnight to midnight, so driving within the ULEZ across two days will make you liable for paying two charges.

 

The ULEZ standards are:

 
  • Euro 3 for motorcycles, mopeds, motorised tricycles and quadricycles (L category) 
  • Euro 4 (NOx) for petrol cars, vans, minibuses and other specialist vehicles
  • Euro 6 (NOx and PM) for diesel cars, vans and minibuses and other specialist vehicles

Do I have to pay?

Renault Z.E. vehicles are exempt from both the ULEZ Charge and Congestion Charge as they have zero tailpipe emissions.

Scrappage schemes

Van driver?

Transport for London scrappage scheme

The Mayor of London’s scrappage scheme supports small businesses, sole traders and charities in operating within the ULEZ, allowing them to apply for funding to scrap up to three vans and charity minibuses that don’t meet the standards, switching to cleaner vehicles.
