With potential savings of £1696* a year, Citroen owners are set to benefit more than most from the proposed exemption of vehicles in Tax Band B to the London Congestion charge.
Citroen has no fewer than 20 different models in the lowest common Graduated Vehicle Excise Duty Band B (less than 120g/km), including all seven versions of the C1 City car, four C2 and six C3 Supermini models.
Importantly, the Company is also able to boast vehicles from the small family car segment with three versions of the stylish C4 fitted with its innovative new Electronic Gearbox System. Not only does this improve fuel consumption compared to traditional manuals, it actually helps reduce CO2 emissions by up to 4 per cent.
Last month, Citroen was named the greenest Car Manufacturer of The Year in the Green Fleet Awards.
Whilst congestion charging is generally thought of as a London only charge, there has been considerable speculation that it could be introduced to other cities in the UK.Published 15 November 2006
