ULEZ - What do scooter users need to know?

To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, except Christmas Day, within the same area of central London as the Congestion Charge. Most vehicles, including cars and vans, need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards or their drivers must pay a daily charge to drive within the zone: 

  • £12.50 for most vehicle types, including cars, motorcycles and vans (up to and including 3.5 tonnes)

  • £100 for heavier vehicles, including lorries (over 3.5 tonnes) and buses/coaches (over 5 tonnes)

For users with Ecooter scooters, you are exempt from this charge because they are electric - giving zero emissions. In London, they will always be exempt from any emission zones because they produce no emissions. So good news, you could be saving £62.50 every week travelling to work. If you commute into London 5 days a week, that's a saving of at least £250 per month.


Now more than ever, it's a great idea to swap from petrol to electric: no tax, reduced maintenance, no fuel, no congestion charges.
