Despite more diesel cars being exempt from the congestion charge than petrol vehicles, Londoners show an indifference towards diesel cars, according to a new survey from ContractHireAndLeasing.com.
As few as 18 per cent of drivers in the London area would choose a diesel model when looking to change their car, while 40 per cent would choose petrol. However significantly more diesel models fall into the sub-100g/km CO2 band and therefore qualify for exemption to the London Congestion Charge under the new Greener Vehicle Discount scheme. The survey was conducted in mid-May and questioned 1752 respondents.
