Volvo DRIVe Chauffeur Service

Different companies have taken different approaches to the new congestion charge regulations in London.

Some offer ultra low emission models to qualify for the 100 percent discount, and some like Volvo go for more unusual solutions!

Volvo has been offering a free chauffeuring service into Central London today (4th January 2011) in three of its low-emission DRIVe models to mark the introduction of the new Greener Vehicle Discount for the capital’s Congestion Charge. It is a solution, but not quite the same as driving your own car!


Volvo’s ‘DRIVe for free’ campaign has been providing a chauffeur-driven service for people attending appointments and meetings in the Congestion Charge zone in a Volvo C30 sportscoupe, S40 saloon or V50 sportswagon. All three models qualify for the Greener Vehicle Discount thanks to CO2 emissions of just 99g/km.

Peter Rask, Regional President of Volvo Car UK, said: Through our ongoing Emissions Equality campaign, Volvo has been instrumental in persuading the Mayor to change the Congestion Charge rules and create a level playing field for all vehicles regardless of powertrain.”
