Register your Alfa Romeo and save on Congestion Charge

Congestion Charge exemption changes start 1st July

From 1st July 2013 the Co2 output required for free entry into the London Congestion Charge zone will drop from 100g/km to 75g/km, removing the majority of internal combustion engines from exemption. Vehicles either currently registered or vehicles registered before June 28, will benefit from a three-year transition period which will run until June 2016.

If you are an Alfa customer you can register your sub-100g/km Alfa Romeo until 28th June for three years congestion charge exemption which can potentially save £7560 and there are two more Alfa models that will qualify for exemption including special editions Alfa MiTo Live and MiTo Sprint which are powered by the TwinAir engine emitting 98g/km. The sub-100g/km models also currently qualify for free VED.

Damien Dally, Head of Brand, Alfa Romeo UK said “despite the changes, Alfa buyers can still benefit from Congestion Charge exemption and save more than £7,500 over three years if they register before 28 June. Alfa’s sub-100g/km MiTo range combines fun performance with frugal efficiency wrapped up in one of the safest and most stylish models in the class.’
