Green info has changed on the Renault Kangoo Ze

Checking against the values I publish for the Renault Kangoo Ze ZEV (60bhp) ZE ELECTRIC ML20 44kW 33kWh Business Van Electric Auto 1cc Electric Automatic, I have noticed a small error, so I’m publishing these new figures today. Please read.

Personal Contract Hire is exactly the same as contract hire for businesses. This is the beauty of getting a car like this, as you benefit from FLEET BONUSES! However, VAT makes a difference. Businesses get the rentals shown ex-VAT (they can often reclaim half of it), whereas private purchasers have it included in the rentals.

Environment

On new cars for example, average CO2 has been cut by more than 10 per cent in six years. Improvements at manufacturing sites have been more significant. Published in September, the SMMT’s seventh annual sustainability report showed that average energy used � and CO2 emitted – to produce each vehicle in the UK has been halved in just four years.

Environmental Data

I am pleased to say that the CO2 for the Renault Kangoo Ze Electric Automatic is now 119g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

My Renault Kangoo Ze ZEV (60bhp) ZE ELECTRIC ML20 44kW 33kWh Business Van Electric Auto 1cc Electric Automatic gearbox is only £179.48 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 23 payments on direct debit. Business customers, make sure you deduct the VAT, when making decisions. As I can’t tell what type of customer you are (business or private), I can’t display the price any other way but to show VAT seperately (sorry!).

RenaultThis price on my Renault Kangoo Ze includes full road tax for the length of the contract, on all of my cars and vans! Free delivery to your home or work and free collection from you at the end! £179.48 inc VAT per month is based on you driving 10,000 miles per annum, but higher mileages are usually available at a small extra cost. If you go over the allocated miles, you can pay a small excess mileage charge, usually between 3p and 15p per mile.

Sir Nicholas Stern, Head of the Government Economics Service, produced the UK Government Environmental Report on the Economics of Climate Change. I was so pleased to win an Environmental Award in 2008, myself. I am determined that LINGsCARS.com will go further than anyone else in this industry to exceed the legal minimum information disclosure. It is probably the case that my customers have the smallest environmental footprints of any new car customers in the UK!

In 1993 exhaust emission limits, (generally referred to as the Euro 1 standards) were introduced for new cars which resulted in the adoption of advanced emission control techniques, e.g. catalysts. More stringent emission limits came into effect in 1997 (Euro 2) and 2001 (Euro 3) and 1st January 2005 (Euro 4). Euro 4 came fully into force on 1st January 2007 and now covers most new cars on sale.

I always ask my customers if they have comments about getting their new car. Really, I am looking for criticisms (so I can improve my service). However, customers like Angela Brady show that it is hard to generate real criticism. I can only improve if I know if anything is wrong. So, no thanks to Angela Brady 🙂

Angela says…
carI cannot praise LINGsCARS.com highly enough for her efficient and professional service. I had originally seen Ling on Dragons Den and originally was concerned that all the transaction was carried out by e-mail but I need not have worried as Ling and her staff kept me fully advised from beginning to end of my Audi A5 Coupe order. From my first enquiry there service was second to none offering me several alternatives until finally I came to a decision and from then on I was kept fully informed of all stages of the order. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole transaction went through so smoothly without any stress to myself and the end result was a very happy customer. I would strongly recommend Ling to all my family and friends and I like to think that I can contact them at any time if I had a query. I think of Ling and her staff as friends and would not hesitate to use the company again. You will not be disappointed with LINGsCARS.

Change on the Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up

The impact of CO2 is important. I always compare my figures with the Government data, so when it changes, like on this Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up Diesel Manual, I note it here in my blog.

This is very difficult for some people to control because of the damn human nature. But try to look at your car as a simple consumer goods, like a fridge or microwave. Who would get excited by a microwave…? Because these cars are so very, very cheap, often dealer makes just a tiny profit. Almost like handling fee. Me too. I work on numbers of cars, like airline ticket consolidators sell tickets.

I also took the decision to code into HTML and make available for printing the “Comparative Labels” or the “fridge” type labels you see at Comet and Curry’s on new fridges and washing machines. No other UK website bothers (or wants) to give their customers this information. One day they will be forced to do this. I have made my code freely available for any dealer who wants to use it, and published a tutorial on how to include this in their websites. This was published on the Automotive Management forum on 26th October 2006. To date, no dealer has contacted me to use my code.

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up Diesel Manual. For this car, the CO2 is now just 119g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

My Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up 2.3 DI-D 16v (150bhp) Double Cab Warrior 4WD Pickup Diesel Manual (6 Speed) 2268cc Diesel Manual gearbox is only £331.93 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 47 payments on direct debit. Business customers, make sure you deduct the VAT, when making decisions. As I can’t tell what type of customer you are (business or private), I can’t display the price any other way but to show VAT seperately (sorry!).

Failure to show fuel consumption labels on new cars on display, or to make available to potential buyers the results of the fuel consumption tests as listed in this booklet, render dealers liable on conviction to a fine of up to �5,000. The same penalty exists for anyone who does not include all the appropriate test results in promotional literature. Trading Standards enforce point of sale information and should be contacted if you have concerns in this area. The Vehicle Certification Agency enforce the provision of information in advertising and promotional literature.

Green info has changed on the Renault Kangoo Ze

Environment

You run this new car for 12, 18, 24 or 36 months depending on the term, and run it within an agreed mileage limit (usually 10,000, 15,000 or 20,000 miles per year, but different mileages are possible). If you exceed the mileage limit, you pay for extra miles at (typically) 4p – 10p per extra mile. This is known as the excess mileage rate.

Environmental Data

My customers have obtained their cars by the lowest polluting method possible – by acquiring them electronically from the internet. No one has had to travel to a showroom (repeatedly) or contributed to car dealers’ massive environmental overheads (heating, lighting, water use, fuel, staffing costs). The cars I supply are often delivered direct from manufacturers’ depots, or where they have been “through” a dealer, they have not required the showroom overhead (these efficiencies have the added benefit of reducing costs!).

The external noise emitted by passenger cars has been controlled since 1929 when the Motor Cars (Excessive Noise) regulations were introduced. New cars are now required to meet Europe-wide noise limits. These have been progressively reduced from 82 decibels (dB(A)) in 1978 to the current limit of 74 dB(A) established in 1996. This means it would take 7 new vehicles to make the same amount of noise as a vehicle that just meets the pre-1978 limits.

My Citroen Dispatch M Van is more economical now?

All the people with orders in my system for the Citroen Dispatch M Van 1.5 BlueHDi 16v (100bhp) M 1000 Enterprise Van 1499cc Diesel Manual will be quite pleased by this news. I am making a change, because the environment stuff seems to have moved slightly.

Environment

Oh, I get very mad about this, but I cannot say this in my advertising or some big leasing companies complain to me that I slag them off… The industry standard for contract hire is a 1x rental-initial-payment or (more usually) a 3x rental-initial-payment. That’s it. If everyone advertised this, you could easily compare the rental figures as the football field we are playing on would be flat.

And if you are thinking that all the fuss at the moment should be about air travel, not cars, Michael O’Leary (of Ryanair) will put you right. He said “Aviation accounts for a ‘Mickey Mouse’ 3% of carbon emissions across the EU, compared with nearly 25% from road transport” He also said “I don�t believe in trotting out all that PC claptrap just not to upset a couple of fu*king environmental lunatics. They are just loons” – which makes sense to me, as I have a problem with this statement from Christopher Macgowan, the head of the SMMT; “The motor industry is committed to helping tackle climate change”. Frankly, I don’t think many retailers and dealers are.

Having got all the info for the Citroen Dispatch M Van Diesel Manual, I can publish the new CO2 figure: 248g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

EU Directive 1999/94/EC requires new car fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data to be made freely available to consumers. Car dealers are required to have a label showing the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of each different model on display, either on or near the vehicle. Fuel consumption figures will be expressed both in litres per 100 kilometres (l/100 km) and in miles per gallon (mpg). The label will list the figures achieved in urban, extra-urban and combined conditions separately. From September of 2005, dealers had the option to produce a new “comparative” label. The new label shows the mandatory Fuel Consumption and CO2 figures mentioned previously, alongside information about the appropriate VED band for the vehicle. The new label is similar in design to the energy efficiency labels that appear on many ‘white goods’, such as fridge freezers

Ford Focus Estate Lease delivered to Stewart Maxwell in Richmond

Gotta laugh at some of these letters! It’s amazing how much time some customers put into writing them. Often it can take me up to 10 seconds to read them. Just like this letter from Stewart Maxwell that I got a while ago:

Stewart says…
CarLing, what can I say? The Ford Focus is great – in fact its latest 08 model and I expected ’07 version; great.

Like last time (when I had a Citroen C4) I was a bit anxious about the wait (after payment) but well pleased now my new car is here (I had bit of trouble if you remember with Citroen waiting car back before I had it 3 years!!).

Ling -anyway- YOU deliver a great service! You always reply promptly and try to put my mind at rest – all the best for now. Glad your family are OK in Chinese earthquake!

I can only deliver the cars that are physical – a Galaxy customer got upset because Ford REDUCED the spec on his Zetec Galaxy… but I cannot alter factory builds. I will always try to push for latest cars 🙂 … and yes, my family were in the centre of the earthquake, but luckily all is well with them. They slept in a park for a week (and my dad is late 70’s!).

Harmful emissions on the Citroen Dispatch M Van

Looking at my records, the Citroen Dispatch M Van 1.5 BlueHDi 16v (100bhp) M 1000 Enterprise Van 1499cc Diesel Manual has changed today, so I have updated the environmental information on my website. You have to laugh that I can beat Citroen to this update!

These days, in UK identity theft is common (not problem in China; we all look same, heheh), money laundering is common, and so is fraud. To proctect themselves, and you, against these problems the finance companies like lots of ID. There are many protecting regulations. Photographic and signature proving (new driving licence or passport), and address proving (recent 90 day or less old utility bill showing your name and address). A company may want to submit a VAT return (proof of trading) or latest signed accounts, and anyone can supply a current bank statement (you can blot out the figures if you are sensitive).

Carbon Dioxide is the most important of the greenhouse gases which are contributing to Climate Change. Unless action is taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as Carbon Dioxide, the whole pattern of the World’s weather could change, increasing the frequency and intensity of heatwaves, floods, droughts and storms.

For this brand new Citroen Dispatch M Van Diesel Manual, the latest CO2 figure is just 248g/km. When I chose this trim, it was because I have a few of these available. Different trims will have different CO2.
