Driving down emissions by almost 5% since 2013, Pendragon Vehicle Management continues to improve the impact of its fleet by supplying more environmentally friendly vehicles to customers.
The drop is contributed to the increased range of hybrid vehicles that are now available, as well as new engines offering much lower CO² emission levels.
Popular choices include the Peugeot 308 1.6 Blue HDi Active, which produces just 82g/km of CO², the Renault Clio Expression+ dCi 90 Eco² producing emissions of 83g/km and the Volkswagen Golf 1.6TDi BlueMotion, which delivers 85g/km of CO² emissions.
Neal Francis, divisional managing director at Pendragon Vehicle Management, said: “We’ve seen a significant decrease in the amount of CO² our vehicles are emitting as a whole, which is a great step in the right direction as we do our bit to help enhance the world we live in.
“Our customers are now better educated on the benefits of choosing a lower CO² emitting fleet, which include lower National Insurance and benefit-in-kind tax and, of course, an improved environment for us all.
“We help our customers find the right balance between performance and practicality and forecast our total emissions will fall even further given the lower level of emissions for vehicles we have on order, as the popularity of hybrid and new technologies gain in popularity as fleet vehicles.”
