LeasePlan has announced that it has managed the provision of the first ECOnetic Mondeos for a commercial fleet on behalf of its client Hilti, the power tools manufacturer.
In replacing the older fleet vehicles the 1.6 litre ECOnetic engine aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 4.8 tonnes per vehicle, as well as allowing for a quieter engine and enhanced driver comfort.
Hilti has taken delivery of 42 1.6 litre ECOnetic Mondeos as part of its £1 million investment in its car fleet. The new cars will replace older Mondeos, which are driven by customer-facing employees.
Ralston Wild, LeasePlan account manager, said: “We are delighted to secure this deal for Hilti, which sees LeasePlan help its client fulfil environmental objectives without compromising the driver experience.”
