Porsche says C-Charge will hit sales
The new Congestion Charge plans would mean that cars emitting over 225g/km of CO2 are charged £25 a day to enter the capital. Porsche says the charge is unfair and disproportionate, so it has applied for a judicial review to the High Court.
If Porsche doesn't win the judicial review, it fears its UK sales could drop by 11%. The figures were revealed in documents seen by the Telegraph newspaper.
Pendragon Premier, a high-end car dealer based in London, is also challenging the proposals. It says it will face £180,000 in higher congestion charge costs if the plans go ahead, forcing it to close.
