BIRMINGHAM

Birmingham Clean Air Zone brum breathes.

Approved by Birmingham City Council

Birmingham's Clean Air Zone (CAZ) was introduced to improve air quality. 

Pollution caused by vehicles has a harmful effect on the health of people living, working and studying in the city.

Taxis and private hire vehicles, powered by diesel, must be Euro 6 (VI) emission standard or better to avoid the daily charge to enter the CAZ. 

Drivers can convert their non Euro 6 cabs to our Euro 6 LPG engine with a £5,000 grant.

What is included?

Brand new 2.0L turbo petrol-LPG engine, featuring our latest GEN3 system, specifically adapted to operate on LPG.

Including a brand new exhaust system, catalytic converter, radiator, full tank of LPG (80ltrs) and Petrol (15ltrs), testing, wheelchair ramp cover, tyre repair kit, 2year/80k mile warranty, CVRAS & UKLPG registration.

Cost: £8,800*

*When using the £5,000 grant scheme (paid post retrofit)

Without the grant the total cost of the retrofit is: 

£11,500 + VAT

(£13,800 inc. VAT) 

Larger petrol tank option

Subject to availability at time of installation, we have manufactured some larger 40ltr petrol tanks, to give additional peace of mind and added range.

This option is currently only available for later TX4 Euro 4 models & Euro 5 models manufactured by the London Taxi Company, as shown below, which have plastic diesel tanks (earlier LTI models have a metal diesel tank). 

 

The cost of the larger petrol tank is an additional £400+Vat payable at the start of the retrofit installation (subject to availability).
