Carbon Dioxide and the Toyota Aygo

I am Ling and my Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X-Play 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual has a new CO2 value today. So I post it here in my blog. I always update very fast. Can anyone name another website that can do this stuff as fast as me?

As a bonus to add to your lower motoring costs, you will get every subsequent year’s road tax sent to you free of charge, saving you up to £385 per year, or £1,155 on a 3-year contract!

If showroom-based car dealers fail 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, it renders them liable on conviction to a fine of up to �5,000. This is why dealers miraculously acheive these “minimum standards” – under threat of a �5,000 fine!

Environment

I am pleased to say that the CO2 for the Toyota Aygo Petrol Manual is now 93g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

Environmental Data

My Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X-Play 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £133.98 inc VAT per month with 9 months initial payment, followed by 35 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!).

ToyotaThis price on my Toyota Aygo 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! £133.98 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!

Keep the pressure up – make sure the tyres are inflated to the correct pressure for the vehicle.

The other pollutants from petrol, diesel and alternative fuel engines are mainly Carbon Monoxide, Oxides of Nitrogen, un-burnt Hydrocarbons and fine particles. The first three are gases and are invisible. Fine particles are usually invisible although in certain operating conditions diesels will produce visible particles, appearing as smoke. Petrol engines will also produce visible particles if they are burning engine oil or running rich, for example, following a cold start. Unlike CO2, emissions of these pollutants are not directly linked to fuel consumption. Pollutant levels are more dependant on vehicle technology and the state of maintenance of the vehicle.

Many customer letters contain really funny stuff. It’s unusual to receive a very dry one. However, I publish them all. Here is a letter from Marjorie Harvey. It was sent to me quite a while ago!

Marjorie says…
carThis is my second car from Ling; the service was fantastic because of her new email LINGO system. It allows you to know at what stage you are or what’s outstanding. Ling is very witty person, but efficient and can answer all your questions. The delivery of the Toyota Prius was perfect no hassle.

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 Jonathan Holdsworth that I got a while ago:

Jonathan says…
CarThis was the most simple, best, effective and straightforward way of controlling, monitoring and taking delivery if a new car. Right products, right price and excellent customer service made this perhaps the best buying experience I have had and I will not hesitate recommend you to others. I wish you all the very best. Excellent delivery, polite, on time and friendly.

My Toyota Aygo CO2 g/km levels

Green output is important to me, so I tell you the Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X-Play 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual has changed, here are the new figures. I work hard to keep everything up to date.

I get my car deals from many sources, main dealers, finance companies, or I work them out myself using different finance companies. Main dealers I use include; Audi, Alfa Romeo, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Citroen, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hummer, Hyundai, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lotus, Mazda (boo), Mercedes-Benz, MG (new improved Chinese joke version!), Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Proton, Renault, Saab, Seat, Skoda, Smart, Ssangyoung (North Korean??) Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Vauxhall, Volkswagen (or VW), and Volvo. Amazing, huh???

At the Kyoto Conference on Climate Change in December 1997 all developed countries agreed to legally binding targets to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in response to warnings over global climate change. Following this the European Commission and the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) came to an agreement in July 1998 that committed ACEA to reduce the CO2 emissions from new passenger cars by over 25% to an average CO2 emission figure of 140 g/km by 2008. This is one of the most significant industry agreements on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and it has led to more fuel efficient vehicles being brought to the market. Similar voluntary agreements have now been reached with Japanese and Korean motor manufacturers. I dread to think what the Chinese are doing…

The CO2 for this Toyota Aygo Petrol Manual is better than it was, at just 93g/km. It is a bit different if you look at a slightly different trim level.

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

New Oxides of Nitrogen data on my Toyota Aygo

The impact of CO2 is important. I always compare my figures with the Government data, so when it changes, like on this Toyota Aygo Petrol Manual, I note it here in my blog.

Martin Callanan (Euro MP for the North East Region) said “Ling and her unique website LINGsCARS.com displays environmental information in a way that leads the UK motor industry. Following my discussions with her about greening the business, Ling has grasped the environmental nettle and is giving UK car buyers comprehensive environmental data on all new cars for sale in the UK to enable them to make an informed choice. LINGsCARS.com gives a fantastic amount of green information on her new cars, which the rest of the UK motor industry would do well to emulate. Using the internet is already the most energy efficient way of researching and buying a new car, so well done Ling for taking the personal responsibility to push this carbon data to the top of her agenda and to push environmental awareness a big step further”

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Toyota Aygo Petrol Manual. For this car, the CO2 is now just 93g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

Green info has changed on the Toyota Aygo

Updating the Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X-Play 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual quickly is brilliant because Google loves to use me as the choice for listing these cars.

Car CO2 change for the Toyota Aygo

Fuel is a fortune these days, so when the Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i X-Play 12v (69bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 5dr 998cc Petrol Manual (5 Speed) Petrol Manual has slightly changed figures, I always blog about it, because my customers say they care.

Have you ever rented a self-drive car for a day or a week? Well, Contract Hire is exactly the same, just for a longer period. Easy, isn’t it? It’s available for businesses or for private individuals. You may have seen me turning down investment on Dragon’s Den! Read on to understand how it works. Occasionally, I can supply PCP, leasing and lease hire (but not often). If you’re reading this because you are unsure if you should use LINGsCARS.com, have a look at my 900+ customer letters.

Compared to improvements in the emissions of toxic pollutants, there has been less progress on reducing CO2 from cars. For a given type of fuel the CO2 emissions of a car are directly proportional to the quantity of fuel consumed. Until recently the average fuel consumption of new cars was unchanged relative to that in the mid 1980�s. This was because while engines have become more efficient over this period, average vehicle mass has increased due to additional features to meet crash safety requirements and the widespread addition of features such as power assisted steering and air conditioning. However, there are signs that in the last few years average fuel consumption has begun to drop in response to voluntary agreements by vehicle manufacturers to reduce CO2 emissions.

Because of the need to maintain strict comparability of results achieved by the standard tests they cannot be fully representative of real life driving conditions. Firstly, it is obviously not practicable to test each individual new car; thus only one production car is tested as being representative of the model and may therefore produce a better or worse result than another similar vehicle. Secondly, there are infinite variations in driving styles and in road, car and weather conditions, all of which can have a bearing on the results achieved. For these reasons the fuel consumption achieved on the road will not necessarily be the same as the official test results.
