From 7th September 2020 London will have an Ultra Low Emission Zone
The emissions standards will be:
Motorcycle, moped etc: Euro 3
Car, van and minibus : Euro 4 petrol, Euro 6 diesel
Bus, coach and lorry: Euro 6

Those not meeting the standards would be subject to a charge (£12.50 (~16€) light duty, £100 (~130€) heavy duty vehicles). This can be in addition to low emission zone and congestion charges.
In addition the public fleet would have significantly reduced emissions:
- The TfL public bus fleet: all double deck buses operating in central London will be hybrid and all single deck buses will be zero emission (at source).
- All newly licensed taxis and new private hire vehicles from 2018 must be able to be zero emission
- Age limit for all non zero emission capable taxis reduced to 10 years

See Londons detailed page for more details.
