It affects you very simply. In your pocket.
Just £12.50 a day from net earnings.
End of 2019 you can dump the car as uber won’t accept it but there are plenty of Tesco runs at local office. Can’t get lost as paxholes are all local and will direct you.

ULEZ is a subject for last yr or so.
April decision currently is as above mentioned but there are consultations for changes of that act.

Check your car in the link above, if it's like my 2011 diesel, our caring Partners Uber suggested by email that we change the car (like a pair of Primark £1 socks), buy yourself a new one or better still use their greedy rental partners, giving an extra small percentage of revenue.

I find that our problem is this:
Buy an used hybrid costing £12k/£15k - only for the ULEZ to change the rules in 2yrs time to only allow Electric cars....back to the same. Plus the way fuel is going up, it will cost £100 a week even on Hybrid plus all the service costs.

Buy an Electric car 2018 - Nissan Leaf 40kwh - spend £20k/£24k for a new one. No road tax no CC or ULEZ worries.

Electricity- 1000 miles will cost around £35 - if dedicated find free charging points and save more/ waste more time charging
The avg £70 week fuel saving plus saving on service costs and parts, almost covers the cost of a bank loan

Current Electric cars mean working 6hrs and stop to charge 30mins to work another 6hrs Average, It would suit my needs on most days.
In London there are already many rapid chargers even if home charging is no possible.

The bigger problem we have is: TFL changes the rules of PH overnight, Uber is the only app based business that is in London, we all know that we can't put our trust in these lot, even buying a used car is a risk.

The way things go, I would not be surprised that as of 2040 they start charging Road tax for elec vehicles.

Someone has to pay for those roads....

Wheely are still knocking about.

As are Blacklane.

Agreed that you can make a Leaf work with a little bit of planning.

Though there are other options coming or already on the market.

Kia Soul or Hyundai Ioniq are two that come to mind, there is also Kia Niro.

Though I think the sweet spot is a plug in hybrid, people with more brains than I have decided that the TXe was the way to go and they didn't make that decision for fun.

Your car is not worth much if its been minicabbed for 6 years.

The way I look at it you have a few different choices.

Run it till it dies and just pay the ULEZ.

Run it till it has to pay ULEZ and sell it then and upgrade your car to a Euro 6

Sell it now and upgrade to a Euro 6

No hard feelings at all :smiles:

Joking aside, have you seen how unclear the results are from TfL? People can easily misunderstand and not understand information.

This is why we wanted to something to help make it easy and clear for drivers.

Oops sorry, I missed out the "."
What results?

If someone wants to use this Ulez bla bla website or whatever...be very careful!...do not put you mobile phone, as because they can charge you from there.
I got charged £9 from a website for checking the road tax...while AskMID is absolutely free.

In summary you will need to work an extra 1.5 hours a day to cover daily charge, hope this helps
