Budget 2008: gas guzzlers - buy now, pay later

Fleets must reassess the number of high emitting cars they have, says Lloyds TSB Autolease.

“If you’re a company car driver or business with a fleet of executive saloons with higher emissions (over 160g/km CO2), this is last-chance saloon time,” said Mark Chessman, deputy MD, Lloyds TSB Autolease.

“The longer you take to act, the more costly it’s going to get. One thing’s for sure, now is the time to review the number of higher emitting cars you have in your fleet – or face significant increases in cost.

“On the flip side, for those drivers and businesses with smaller, lower emitting cars (160g/km CO2 or less), the future’s bright.

"We are anticipating a reduction in the cost of your fleet.”
