The Ford Kuga Estate is a Green car yet?

I am the fastest car supplier in the UK to update the Ford Kuga Estate 1.5 EcoBoost 2WD ST-Line (150bhp) Estate 5dr 1498cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual information. No one in the industry can believe how fast I am.

At the end of the contract, the car is collected from you and you have no further obligations. You do not buy the car, nor do you have a “balloon” payment. Simply give it back! Of course, the car should be fair and reasonable condition commensurate with its age and mileage. If it’s not, you’ll be charged for any damage. But to me that’s common sense.

Environment

My customers drive brand-new cars. These cars are far less polluting than cars built just a few years ago. As an extreme example, it would take 50 new cars to produce the same emissions per kilometre as a vehicle made in 1970. The new cars my customers are driving have been produced on the most modern production lines, using the latest technology with much lower environmental build costs than cars produced in the past. By their nature, these new cars will be emitting the lowest levels of pollutants than they will ever produce in their lifetimes, as they get older.

Environment

The CO2 for this Ford Kuga Estate Petrol Manual is better than it was, at just 143g/km. It is a bit different if you look at a slightly different trim level.

Environment

My Ford Kuga Estate 1.5 EcoBoost 2WD ST-Line (150bhp) Estate 5dr 1498cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £272.30 inc VAT per month with 3 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!).

FordThis price on my Ford Kuga Estate 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! £272.30 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!

Check your fuel consumption – it will help you get the most from the car, changes in overall fuel consumption may indicate a fault.

The different fuels have different merits from an environmental perspective. Compared to petrol, diesel vehicles have significantly lower CO2 emissions per kilometre traveled because of the higher efficiency of diesel engines and hence have a lower impact on climate change. Diesel vehicles also emit lower levels of CO and HC than equivalent petrol vehicles. However diesel engines emit greater levels of NOx and Particles than new petrol vehicles. As mentioned earlier, emissions of such pollutants are an air quality issue, particularly in urban areas.

How much do I spend on stamps??? It must add up because I send every customer a nice thank-you letter. Jason Keetley replied with a letter back to me about the Ford Mondeo that was delivered, new. Here it is:

carLing. This has been a totally hassle-free procedure from start to finish. My new Mondeo is fantastic, your customer service cannot be faulted. I have gone form an old MING mobile to a brand new LING mobile in a few easy steps. See you soon. Good delivery, the car was driven to me and had 180 miles on the clock.

Ford MondeoEditor Note: Jay, you are the owner of a Shoe and Key shop in the UK gun capital, Nottingham. Therefore, I supplied the SVO Mondeo version (Iraq model) with anti-ballistic glass and bulletproof doors. Hope you like. Make sure you don’t use the CS gas dispensers in a built-up area. Roof-mounted machinegun mount was removed at your request, are you sure that wasn’t a mistake? If you need a new key, why not cut it yourself? Have a great time in the Mondeo 🙂 – Ling

New CO2 figure for the VW Golf

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”

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.

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.

Having got all the info for the Vauxhall Crossland X Petrol Manual, I can publish the new CO2 figure: g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

Dealers are also required to display a poster � in paper or as an electronic display, in a prominent position, showing the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for all new passenger car models displayed, or offered for sale through that particular showroom. In addition to the above, the directive also requires manufacturers to include fuel consumption and CO2 emissions data in all brochures and printed advertisements, provided that the literature relates to a specific model of car. These requirements were implemented into UK law by The Passenger Car (Fuel Consumption and CO2 emissions Information) Regulations 2001, which came into force on the 21st of November 2001.

The Audi A1 3dr Hatch is a Green car yet?

I am Ling and my Audi A1 3dr Hatch 1.4 TFSI Sport Nav 16v (125bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 3dr 1395cc Petrol Manual (6 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?

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.

When a customer clicks through into an individual car’s detail, they can see even more information. This includes the CO2 (again) and all three EC fuel consumption measurements. I even include the EU noise rating and the road tax “class” which may influence a customer’s car choice decision. (Please bear in mind that the road tax is completely free, from me – I include that cost information so a customer has more clue about the environmental impact of their new car).

I am pleased to say that the CO2 for the Audi A1 3dr Hatch Petrol Manual is now 115g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

My Audi A1 3dr Hatch 1.4 TFSI Sport Nav 16v (125bhp) (4 seats) Hatchback 3dr 1395cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £239.95 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit.

Drive smoothly and efficiently – harsh acceleration and heavy braking have a very significant effect on fuel consumption, driving more smoothly saves fuel.

Nice site. I love the intelligence question.
Vincent Omoke, Cheltenham, GL52 2AY
luamboluanzo_@aol.com

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

All the people with orders in my system for the Jaguar E-Pace Estate 2.0 d S 16v (180bhp) Estate 5dr 1999cc Diesel 4X4 Automatic (9 Speed) Diesel Automatic will be quite pleased by this news. I am making a change, because the environment stuff seems to have moved slightly.
