Clean Air Zones: what are they and where will they be?

In October this year, Oxford announced its plans to become the world’s first zero emissions city zone – they aim to ban all petrol and diesel cars from the city centre area by 2020. This suggests the UK are serious about rolling out their plans to ban the sale of all new diesel and petrol cars by 2040 in an attempt to clean up the UK’s air quality. Oxford isn’t the only city looking to introduce clean air zones either. The government has revealed five UK cities that plan to have a clean air zone by 2020, including Birmingham, Southampton and Leeds. Continue reading

The McLaren 570S Spider: The Last Supercar

I should qualify that. The McLaren 570S Spider as featured here is the last supercar I think I will ever drive. ‘Are you mad?’ I hear you ask; well, maybe, depends on who you ask, but that has nothing to do with why I am done with the supercar sector.

You see, it was like this…. Continue reading

The Plan For 2040

In July, the government announced a plan to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel by 2040 in an attempt to clean up the air quality in the UK. This news follows in the footsteps of some of our neighbouring countries who also plan for an all-electric nation in the future. Norway plan to stop the sales of petrol and diesel by 2025 and Germany by 2030, with France working towards the same target as the UK’s plan for 2040. Continue reading

Citroen C3 Is A Real Surprise

This pleases me. I like a car that, whilst competing deep within the supermini sector, offers a little bit of flair and individuality that sets it apart. Such is the case with the Citroen C3 you see here, loaned to me in the top-specification Flair trim (see below). Admittedly I’m biased, being a fan of the brand and indeed a Citroen owner but this car has real merit in my opinion. Continue reading
