The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) was launched in April 2019. Its purpose is to reduce harmful vehicle emissions and thereby improve air quality. It does so by encouraging the use of cars that produce low / zero emissions and discouraging those vehicles which produce high-emission levels.
Currently, ULEZ applies to all parts of London contained within the North and South Circular Roads – but from 29th August 2023, ULEZ will expand to include every London borough.

Everything You Need to Know About ULEZ
This short video presented by Ross Lydall, Transport Editor of the Evening Standard, provides a handy guide to ULEZ.
Charging Your ULEZ-Friendly Plug-In Hybrid or Electric Vehicle
All mild hybrid and full hybrid Fords are self-charging, which means no driver input is required. Alternatively, plug-in hybrid and pure-electric Ford models need manual charging, which can be done at home, at work or at one of thousands of public charging points located across the UK.
We stock a wide range of low / zero-emissions Ford vehicles which easily pass ULEZ’s low-emissions criteria, from the practical Fiesta hybrid to the fast-off-the-mark, all-electric Mustang Mach-E.
