Can you recommend a cheap van that will meet the ULEZ rules?

I have to get rid of my vehicle in October because of where I live in London. I really don't want to and I cannot afford to get an updated version of what I already have.
I need a small van. I currently have a Citroen Berlingo. Can you advise me where to go to look for another van of similar size that is reasonably priced and will be ULEZ compliant?

The ULEZ is based on the total tailpipe emission levels and not necessarily the Euro rating of the engine. This means some Euro5 diesels will qualify for exemption from the charge. You can check this with our ULEZ checker tool here:

If you are planning to use the van for short journeys then you may want to consider a petrol van. Both the Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner are available with petrol engines and these are less polluting than diesel, which means Euro4 models (registered from 2005) are exempt from the ULEZ charge.

Otherwise, I would suggest the diesel Ford Transit Connect:
