    It's an unobtainable target and not one I am worrying about, that's for sure.

    PS I said 2040 for France not as the year that no ICE engines will be sold any more, but the year that will still see loads and loads still in use as vehicles just 10-15 years old will not automatically be scrapped. Maybe in NI no one drives anything under 12 months, but the rest of the UK is a bit different and the same on the Continent
    If anyone wants more details of emission restrictions and the like around the EU have a look at this
    Urban Access Regulations
    There's even a route planner to highlight any restrictions you might meet on a trip.

    This my point,

    you will be alright on the M1 motorway going south but if you take a wrong turn at the end of the motorway you could be caught by the cameras.

    Given the number of motorhomes owned older than say 15 years old now, Diesel and Petrol vehicles will be in regular use well past 2050 or 2060 in the UK and I have no doubts well past 2040 in France.
    Yes but gov will tax heavy and offer scrappage against new units to which most will jump.
    No need for power stations as my mate charges of solar though low in winter im gunning water and wind will make good,only time will tell though i may never see it.

    I've just checked and both my motorhome and my deisel car fall foul of the new regime, so I'll stick to the train

    I'd have a lot more respect for schemes like this and their motives if the cities actually banned the vehicles that aren't up to their emissions standards. As it is, thousands upon thousands of 'offending' vehicles will still be fogging up the so called clean zone but now they'll be paying for the privilege. I wonder where the money will go?

    Also my car is not good enough and it's only done 17,000 miles,

    so because I am so close I will have to be very careful not to go over the boundary and get a ticket.

    Re diesel, only Euro6 meet the new standard. As already seen with HGVs this will have a significant effect on none Euro6 motorhomes, and more so as Leeds, Liverpool and Birmingham all rush to introduce similar schemes. Itís not all about where you tour itís also about where people live. Anyone living in the zones will not really be able to own a non Euro 6 vehicle unless they never take it home.

    Transport Managers are well aware of whatís coming hence Euro 5 trucks are worth very little compared to a similar age Euro 6 truck. This will come to the Motorhome market but probably on as it happens as many donít realise just whatís coming and how quick it will come.

    This is my situation, Harrow is already in the outer London LEZ but the ULEZ is coming soon, and this affects things like some petrol motorbikes as well.

    My next door neighbor has a 2013 diesel van and his van is not clean enough for this new zone.

    I believe Euro 5 vehicles can be upgraded to Euro 6?
