Pick-up slips into London’s £8 band
2 April 2008

Mitsubishi has dropped the CO2 emissions on its manual L200 pick-up by 3g/km, to 225g/km. This move hardly means that the ice caps will stop melting, but it does guarantee owners of the greener L200 access to London for £8 instead of the £25 it will cost for the older, more polluting model to enter the capital if Ken Livingstone’s proposed congestion charge is implemented in October.Jim Tyrrell, Mitsubishi’s managing director, said, “We have worked hard to reduce the emissions levels wherever we can to help minimise any negative financial impact on the thousands of businesses that have chosen to use our pick-ups.”All manual L200’s registered from 1 April onwards will get the lower emissions rating.

  • Kia Stonic

    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
