Pollutant levels on my Mercedes E Class Estate

I am the fastest car supplier in the UK to update the Mercedes E Class Estate 2.0 E220d SE 16v (194bhp) Estate 5dr 1950cc Diesel 9G-Tronic (9 Speed) Diesel Automatic information. No one in the industry can believe how fast I am.

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).

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 am pleased to say that the CO2 for the Mercedes E Class Estate Diesel Automatic is now 109g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

My Mercedes E Class Estate 2.0 E220d SE 16v (194bhp) Estate 5dr 1950cc Diesel 9G-Tronic (9 Speed) Diesel Automatic gearbox is only £373.20 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!).

MercedesThis price on my Mercedes E Class 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! £373.20 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.

Environmental Data

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.

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

Philip says…
CarExcellent service and spot-on delivery. Exactly 9am as suggested. I love driving my new Honda Civic, so much that I have put 3000 miles on in the first 6-weeks, GULP! I will have to get a bus pass before the contracted miles over-run the limit, oooops. I have recommended you to everyone.

Back to CO2 – there is no easy technical way to deal with CO2. The best way to reduce it and the other emissions is to use the car only when it is necessary and to walk or use public transport where possible. When you are choosing a vehicle and you have selected the most appropriate class of vehicle for your needs, choose the most fuel efficient vehicle in that group. This is where a franchised new car dealer really struggles. Is a Ford dealer really going to advise a customer to buy a lower-polluting Renault Megane? Did you know the fuel consumption of similar size cars can vary as much as 45%?

I am pleased to say that the CO2 for the Mercedes GLA Class Petrol Automatic is now 144g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

Honda Jazz Lease delivered to Giloria Cowan in South Brent

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 Giloria Cowan that I got a while ago:

Giloria says…
CarHi Ling, I have heard lots about you from Bruce and thought I would send my own message of thanks. The car (Honda Jazz – Ling) is great and the whole process went really smoothly. We would certainly recommend you to friends & colleagues and tell them how friendly and professional your service is. Have a great 2006!

For this brand new Citroen C3 Petrol Manual, the latest CO2 figure is just 110g/km. When I chose this trim, it was because I have a few of these available. Different trims will have different CO2.

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 รฏยฟยฝ5,000. 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.

Pollution levels on the Mercedes A Class have changed

I am the fastest car supplier in the UK to update the Mercedes A Class 1.3 A200 AMG Line 16v (163bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1332cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual information. No one in the industry can believe how fast I am.

Environment

Sometimes new car will be delivered on a car transporter, other times it will be driven to you. Either way, I always ask you check mileage on delivery. Write mileage on delivery sheet (before signing!!!) and keep a copy. At the end of contract, you can then subtract these miles from any “excess mileage” you may have incurred (extra miles over contract amount). This is easy if you have kept a copy of the delivery note. This is hard if you have lost it.

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

Having got all the info for the Mercedes A Class Petrol Manual, I can publish the new CO2 figure: 136g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

Fuel economy and CO2 change on my BMW X2

Making your car greener is important, so it is nice when you can do it just by looking at the new BMW X2 2.0 sDrive 20i M Sport 16v (192bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1998cc Petrol Step Auto (7 Speed) Petrol Automatic. The CO2 values have changed, making it more attractive.

Environment

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

Christopher Macgowan, Chief Executive of the SMMT wrote to me and said “Ling, thank you very much for giving us the opportunity at SMMT to look at the impact of the (environmental) label in a different media from the car showroom. We have always been aware that like the “white goods” label on which the car label is based, that its merits extend beyond the car showroom. In addition we know that the earlier in the buying process the purchaser thinks about low CO2 emissions the more consideration it will be given in the buying process. The industry is committed to seeing the environmental credentials of cars being widely publicised and the SMMT will continue to provide leadership in this area; as with all new initiatives in a huge industry like ours, it takes a bit of time to become widespread and universally available but please be in no doubt that the SMMT and I personally are determined to see the widespread use of the new label.”

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 134g/km for the BMW X2 Petrol Automatic. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

My BMW X2 2.0 sDrive 20i M Sport 16v (192bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1998cc Petrol Step Auto (7 Speed) Petrol Automatic gearbox is only £337.97 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit.

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.
