Answer for Central London - Fuel type of vehicles

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Please see Appendix H which provides a list of vehicles extracted from Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) data for an average weekday (24hrs) in the Congestion Charging Zone. The data is broken down by number of unique vehicles by vehicle type, fuel type and euro standard.

Motorcycles are not included as they are not currently picked up by the ANPR cameras. Hackney Carriages are included, but these are all vehicles registered as Hackney with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and may include vehicles not currently licensed by TfL. M2 buses include minibuses and buses and coaches up to 5 tonnes gross vehicle weight. M3 buses include TfL and non-TfL buses and coaches. Euro standard is inferred from year of manufacture as this data is not received from the DVSA.
