Toyota’s revolutionary city car, the iQ, will be exempt from the central London congestion charge from 4 January 2011, presenting a potential saving total of more than £2,500 per annum.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has announced that a new Greener Vehicle Discount will be created as part of the revised scheme, providing a 100 per cent discount to cars that emit 100g/km of CO2 or less and meet the Euro 5 standard for air quality. With its Toyota Optimal Drive Euro 5 engine emitting just 99g/km of CO2, the 1.0-litre manual 2011 iQ will qualify for the new discount.

iQ represents the successful outcome of Toyota’s well-established drive to reduce the environmental impact of its vehicles without compromising performance and driving dynamics. Now exempt from London’s congestioncCharge, it is clearly a city car that’s in the right place at the right time.

Its innovative, aerodynamic packaging has been achieved through a low overall height, low centre of gravity and wheels pushed out to the four corners of the car. This gives agility at low speed and unprecedented stability for a small car on motorways and winding roads. A minimum turning radius of 3.9 metres further enhances its nimble handling, even in tight city streets.

The Toyota Prius and new Auris hybird, both with tax-efficient CO2 emissions of 89g/km, will continue to be exempt from the congestion charge under the revised scheme.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car.
