As of April 2019, electric vehicles are eligible for an exemption form both the London Congestion Charge and the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charge.
In order to qualify for these exemptions, drivers will need to register their electric vehicle with Transport for London (TfL) at a cost of £10, which needs to be renewed each year.
The Congestion Charge zone runs every day, between 07:00-22:00 (except Christmas Day). Unregistered vehicles will need to pay £15 each day you drive within the boundary.
The Ultra Low Emission Zone, by contrast, runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week (except Christmas Day), within the same area of central London as the Congestion Charge. Most vehicles that aren't registered will have to pay £12.50 per day. Although heavier vehicles, such as lorries, may need to pay up to £100 per day.
That means a typical daily charge for an unregistered car to drive in London is £24 per day.Register an electric vehicle todayto avoid paying more than you have to.
