Volkswagen launches emission guide

Volkswagen Fleet Services has launched two new CO2 emissions price lists, with the aim of making it simple and quick for a fleet manager or driver to find a car that suits their needs.

Volkswagen’s first fleet price guide based on CO2 emissions was launched in 2009, detailing all the cars in the company’s range with a carbon dioxide output of under 160 g/km.

It included information on P11D values and corresponding Benefit-in-Kind tax implications and proved a useful tool for both fleet managers designing choice lists based on emissions, as well as drivers keen to select an appropriate vehicle for their requirements and budget.

This original sub-160g/km price list has now been updated, and is joined by a booklet detailing all the cars with emissions under 120g/km.

Volkswagen Fleet Services’ communications manager Tracey Rossetti said: “We had a very positive response to the first emissions guide we published and so have decided to develop it further and introduce the new version with sub-120g/km vehicles.

“Although all our fleet price lists contain this information, we believe this makes people’s lives and vehicle selections easier – as the information is contained in one easy to use guide – and that’s important to busy fleet managers and drivers.”

She added: “The publication of these new tools has also highlighted the breadth of the Volkswagen range, demonstrating that you don’t need to compromise on comfort or performance to drive a car which offers low emissions.”

The sub-160g/km booklet contains 16 model ranges, from the Fox to the Sharan, and includes the Polo Match and new Touran; while the sub-120g/km price list offers a choice of nine model ranges including the highly acclaimed new Golf Cabriolet and the Golf BlueMotion which emits just 99 g/km of carbon dioxide, is exempt from the London Congestion Charge and has a BIK tax rating of 13%.
