Vauxhall takes top billing in Powershift Register

VAUXHALL has pride of place in the new Powershift Register after it became the first car manufacturer to appear, and qualified for the highest grant available. The company's 2.0-litre Vectra and Omega LPG conversions qualify for a 75% grant on the premium over a normal model (currently £1,950, including VAT).

Vauxhall's bi-fuel vans are undergoing checks to see if they will receive the same level of subsidy. Bill Parfitt, Vauxhall fleet sales director, said: 'This is official recognition of what we have done behind the scenes. Vauxhall's green credentials were already pretty impressive, now they are virtually unbeatable. I am pretty certain this news will give alternative fuels a push in the right direction.'
