Adapted vehicles must meet all the emissions standards of the set Euro standard. It is possible to upgrade a Euro-2 and Euro-3 vehicles to Euro-5 via retrofitting emission control devices (such as particulate trap with SCR) approved by the Swedish Transport Agency.

The LEZ scheme is a local scheme operated by separate cities, but on a national framework. So the standards for each Swedish city are the same, see the standards outlined above.



A leaflet on the Swedish LEZs can be found here in English, here in Swedish, and here in German.
