Londoners less likely to own a green car, study says

Londoners less likely to own a green car, study says
Motorists in the south-west of England and Wales are three times more likely to own a low-emission car than people living in London, new research has indicated.

The study, which was conducted by car insurance comparison site Tescocompare.com, found that there are currently two million drivers in the UK with an environmentally friendly vehicle.

In addition, it found that more than 21 million more motorists would be willing to consider converting to a carbon-friendly car if there were more incentives to do so.

Some 65 per cent of British drivers said they would be persuaded to purchase a green car if they were priced more competitively with normal cars. In addition, 62 per cent said they would be enticed by reduced road tax, while 36 per cent claimed cheaper parking fees may provide the incentive to switch to an eco-friendly vehicle.

In related motoring news, edie.net reported that Dublin is currently examining the benefits of imposing a congestion zone similar to the one in effect in London.

Citing a survey conducted by the Irish Taxation Institute, the news source reported that 59 per cent of people may be encouraged to purchase low-emission cars if changes to the vehicle registration tax system come into effect.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18574502-ADNFCR
