The changes to the LEZ (London Low Emission Zone) are less then seven months away and Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles are offering any owner of an older van the chance to take advantage of the special discounts on offer from their range.
From January next year all vans which are 3.5 tonnes and below and were registered as new before January 02 will no longer have the luxury of being exempt from daily London Low Emission Zone charges. Vauxhall want to help the owners of commercial vans which will be ten years old when the changes start, plan ahead and avoid having to pay the daily toll which will be another unwanted cost for a business to find. Firms with vans covered by commercial vehicle insurance which are over a decade old need to think about replacing the fleet or at least some of them. Vauxhall are offering generous savings to anyone buying a new Vauxhall commercial vehicle before December 31st this year.
Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, said “I want to make the air cleaner and greener in this great city with the minimum of financial impact for those who need to upgrade their vehicles. I’ve already given extra breathing space during the depths of the recession before these standards are introduced and I am pleased that a number of manufacturers are now offering new discounts to aid us in our efforts.”
Even though the London Low Emission Zone changes only relate to commercial vans ten years or older, Vauxhall are also offering deals to anyone who has a vehicle first registered as little as seven years ago. They are offering £3,000 off a brand new Corsavan via a trade-in, while a £7,500 discount is available off the new Movano with panel vans and chassis cabs also included in the offer.
Vauxhall say they are proud to once again support their customers with this value for money deal which is aimed at helping customers to get through the current tough economic environment.
