Londoners Dodge ULEZ Charges and Save with Car Subscription

London drivers could subscribe to a brand new and fully insured electric car for less than it will cost to be allowed to drive their existing vehicle in the capital when the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expands this week.

The ULEZ zone will grow massively on October 25th to cover everything within the North and South Circular Roads. From that point, those driving older and more polluting diesel, petrol and even hybrid cars will pay £27.50 a day for the privilege (£12.50 for the ULEZ charge and £15 for the London Congestion Charge).

For a motorist who uses his or her car for work, and drives in the capital Monday-Friday, that will add up to an eye-watering £550 a month.

But, with fully electric cars being totally exempt from both charges, leading vehicle subscription site Wagonex has revealed how savvy drivers can trade-in their older internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles for brand new eco-friendly alternatives - and still save money.

For example, an electric Nissan Leaf supplied by Wagonex could offer a saving of over £220 per month… And that’s before fuel savings and other running costs are eliminated. offers a huge range of electric cars available on subscription for anything between one and 36 months. The platform offers drivers vehicle solutions without long-term financial commitment, with maintenance and insurance all wrapped up into one neat monthly payment.

Vehicle subscription has recently been identified as the ideal solution for those who aren’t sure whether the switch to electric is suitable for them.

A recent survey conducted by Yonder revealed over a quarter (28%) of respondents were not fully convinced by the purchase of an electric vehicle but would be interested in trying one for a month. Vehicle subscription allows drivers to try different vehicles on a temporary basis, making it the perfect way to evaluate the everyday usability of an EV.

Toby Kernon, Founder and CEO of Wagonex, said: “The whole purpose of the ULEZ is to improve air quality and, like all Londoners, I welcome that.

“For some people though, driving is the only realistic and affordable way of getting around the city and a car is a necessity.

“We’re able to get them behind the wheel of a fabulous new zero emission EV for way less than they would be paying simply to be allowed to drive in central London.

“That way they are making a positive contribution to improving air quality at the same time as saving themselves money. It’s a win-win.”

Those choosing vehicle subscription will find:

• The choice of thousands of new cars available for subscriptions of anywhere between one and 36 months

• Deposits are fully returnable at the end of the contract and can be carried over to a motorist’s next car

• All parts and maintenance are included for the duration of the contract, meaning no unexpected repair bills – EVER!

• Fully comprehensive and totally transparent insurance is included in the monthly subscription payment
