Don’t Let Euro 6 Cost You Money – Upgrade now and pay less

Don't Let Euro 6 Cost You Money - Upgrade now and pay less

How Will Euro 6 Affect You?

You’ll have heard of Euro 6, but you might not know how it’s going to affect you in the next few months.

Euro 6 is the name of emissions standards that came out a couple of years ago, to make new cars and vans cleaner. It’s all about how much pollution you can emit, with diesel engines getting it the hardest.

New diesel engines now have to be over 50% cleaner, although petrol engines have got it away with it and aren’t effected.

But why is this so important now?

Because you might start feeling the pinch in your pocket from the 8th of April this year. Unless, that is, you upgrade your wheels with van hire or purchase from Westwood Motor Group.


What’s Happening on the 8th of April?

The 8th of April, 2019, is when London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) comes into play.

The ULEZ means if you ever drive in Central London, you’ve got to pay a daily emissions charge on top of the congestion charge. And it doesn’t take a break, being active 24/7, 365 days a year.

But even if you don’t ever go to London, it could still sting you.


Don’t Do Yourself Over

You’ll feel it if you buy a new van that isn’t Euro 6 compliant.

Because if you one day go to sell your van, nobody who ever travels into London will give you the money you want for it. Why would they, when they’ll have to pay a daily charge of twelve quid a day and change?!

That works out to over £3,200 a year. Which isn’t peanuts.

So make sure you buy a Euro 6 compliant van, because otherwise you’ll feel the drop in the value.


How Does It Work?

The most common method is with AdBlue (diesel exhaust fluid) which you’ll have to keep topped up yourself. But the cost of that is well worth the benefits.

Because Euro 6 engines are more efficient than the old ones, so you get better fuel economy, meaning less cash poured into the pumps.

Euro 6 engines are usually more powerful too.

And if there are any further crackdowns on CO2 emissions, and you’re running a fleet that’s not Euro 6 compliant, that’ll be one big bill.


Every Westwood Van Meets Euro 6 Standards

We don’t mess about.

If you buy one of our vans you’ll avoid the ULEZ charge and you’ll avoid any drop in value that comes with an old engine.

Simply put, you’ll get a better vehicle and up paying less in the long run.

So take a look at our vans for sale, see what we have available right now and drive away in one today.

What's Going On at Westwood


I needed to hire a car for a week and remembered the excellent service I had from Westwood a couple of years ago when I hired a van from them to move house. The only thing that’s changed since then is the service is even better. From my initial phone call to dropping the vehicle off the service was smooth, professional and warmly helpful.

I would recommend Westwood to anyone looking to rent a van or car. Great service at a very competitive price all done with a smile. I’ve followed my advice and booked a car for a future trip.

Needed a van for one day to move furniture and a run to the tip; got swift professional service, and a fully specced van with all convenience features, and cheaper than any local rival. Highly recommended by this happy customer. Will use again.
