What is ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone)?

The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) began in earnest in September 2020 but was announced as far back as March 2015. It’s designed to make London’s air more breathable by discouraging owners of high-emissions vehicles from driving through the capital. It does so by enforcing a daily tariff.

Which Areas Does ULEZ Affect?

The ULEZ applies to areas of the capital located within the North and South Circular roads. From 29th August 2023, the zone will increase to include all London boroughs.

New Low-Emission Cars

Low and zero-emissions cars offer many benefits, not just exemption from ULEZ tariffs. They’re affordable to run, kinder to the environment, and free from any and all congestion / Clean Air Zone charges in other parts of the UK.


Do you have a ULEZ query? If so, please look at our frequently asked questions below – and if you’d like to know more, don’t hesitate to contact your local Allen Kia, Bletchley Kia, Milton Keynes Kia or Southend Kia team.

Other Than Exemption from ULEZ Charges is There Any Other Incentive to Switching to a Hybrid or Electric Car?


Yes. If you make the switch, you could be entitled to as much as £2,000 for scrapping your old vehicle. For full details, please visit https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ultra-low-emission-zone/scrappage-schemes.

Will I Be Fined if I Drive My Non-Compliant Vehicle in the ULEZ?


It’s not worth the risk because, if caught, you’ll be liable for a £180 fine.

Are All Hybrid Cars Exempt from ULEZ Charges?


Yes. All mild-hybrid, full-hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles are 100% ULEZ friendly.

Does Kia Manufacture Any Zero-Emission Vehicles?


The Kia Soul EV, All-New Niro EV and Kia EV6 (including the EV6 GT) are fully electric and therefore zero-emission cars. The forthcoming EV9 is an all-electric SUV too.
