London T-Charge launches

Published:  23 October, 2017

London’s new T-Charge came into force today (Monday 23 October 2017).


Under the new system, drivers of older, higher polluting vehicles pay the £10 T-Charge, on top of the existing £11.50 congestion charge when entering central London’s congestion charge zone.


The T-Charge is expected to affect 10,000 drivers in the capital each year and will apply between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.
The T-Charge  has been introduced in a bid to cut London's toxic air pollution levels, which at present exceed the World Health Organisation's limit for PM2.5 particles.


The T-Charge is the first in a series of new rates set to be brought in for London. The new charge is due to be superceded by a stricter Ultra-Low Emission Zone by 2020.


Drivers can see if their vehicle is affected by the T-Charge via TfL's online checker:  https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/emissions-surcharge

  • Johnson Controls EFB range 

    90% of all newly produced vehicles have a Stop/Start system, which requires a more comprehensive energy supply than conventional cars with few electrical functions. Stop/Start technology is also used in small and medium-sized passenger cars. You can find the right battery in the new and extended EFB product range for almost all entry level Stop/Start vehicles. The range extension includes three new JIS types for market coverage of vehicles of Asian car manufacturers, one new EN type (H8) for higher coverage of Italian car manufacturers, and 3 upgrades to current EN types (H5, H6 and H7) to optimise cold-cranking performance values.

  • Lighting the way  

    The introduction of Xenon HID bulbs has been one of the biggest vehicle lighting developments of the last 20 years. As they become more common and are no longer restricted to just premium or luxury cars, many more motorists are now benefiting from the crisper, whiter colour temperatures, helping them see road signs and obstacles more clearly. In addition, legislation was introduced in 2012 so new vehicles produced after then would use D3 and D4 references, which do not contain mercury. Ring stocks a comprehensive range of Xenon HIDs, including the new D5 reference.
