Euro6 - the latest emissions standards - are causing London van drivers some discomfort. Mostly in their wallets as, from 8 April 2019, non-compliant vans are now being hit with fees of £12.50 per day when they enter London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). In addition to the existing congestion charges, that means that van drivers are taking quite a financial hit, potentially racking up thousands of pounds in fees across a year.
The Euro 6 legislation is aimed at reducing harmful pollutants and improving London’s dire air quality. Since September 2016, all newly manufactured vehicles must achieve the Euro6 emissions standards, but used van drivers in and around London are being heavily affected. The good news is that Vanwise Group has two dealerships packed full of used Euro 6 legislation vans. In Maidstone, Kent, and Harlow, Essex, our dealerships are perfectly appointed to serve motorists in and around London with some of the best Euro 6vans, such as:
Strong and robust, the Iveco Daily boasts market-leading load volumes from 7.3m³ up to an impressive 19.6m³, making it one of the most versatile large vans on the market. Plus, to comply with the Euro 6 standards, Iveco has used a combination of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technologies to make the Daily between 8%-10% more fuel efficient than the Euro5 version.

Another large van to watch out for is the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. It is a pioneer in its class because it was the first to produce a Euro 6 compliant engine, and is still the only van in its class to offer a V6 engine. With four lengths and three heights offering an incredible load space of between 7.8m³ and 17.0m³, it is surely one of the most capable large vans available.

This medium van has some impressive capability thanks to a reinforced heavy-duty suspension, meaning it can tow up to 2.5 tonnes and still achieve 54.3 mpg. With the potential for bigger and heavier commercial loads and some of the best fuel efficiency in its class, what's not to love?
