Green changes on my Hyundai Tucson Estate

Changing this information for the Hyundai Tucson Estate 1.6 GDi 2WD SE Nav 16v (132bhp) Estate 5dr 1591cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual, I noticed most other websites still use old values. You should trust that I work harder to give you the correct info!

Environment

Local franchised dealer will sort out any warranty problems for free, but on most contracts (except VW group) any VAT registered garage can service car very cheap. Don’t use manufacturer agents, they are damn expensive. You never have an MOT (except on occasional 3-year contracts), car is always too young.

According to Nicholas Stern’s report, 14 per cent of global carbon dioxide emissions come from transport. The SMMT points out that the motor industry recognises it has a key role to play in reducing the impact of its products and production processes and will continue to develop the technologies to deliver more sustainable motoring. New cars, commercial vehicles and buses reflect many of the cleaner technologies coming to market, including biofuel models, hybrids and greener diesel vehicles.

Having got all the info for the Hyundai Tucson Estate Petrol Manual, I can publish the new CO2 figure: 162g/km. This will change across the different models of this particular car, they are all a bit different.

Environmental Data

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!).

Hybrid vehicles combine an internal combustion engine with an electric motor and battery. There are various ways in which hybrid vehicles can operate. For example the electric motor can be used to provide additional power during acceleration and high load conditions. The battery can then be recharged by the internal combustion engine or from energy absorbed during braking, or, in some cases, from an external electrical supply. Hybrid vehicles offer reduced fuel consumption and CO2 with potentially some reduction in emissions of local pollutants.

Getting letters in the post is really nice. It makes a lovely change from getting email. This one was sent by Trevor McLeese from Ipswich. Amazingly, the postman didn’t steal it!

Trevor says…
car“Very good, friendly service. Good prices. Efficient service. My only suggestion would be to scale down the busy advertising and printing on envelopes and paper/website. There is too much going on (if you know what I mean). The Vauxhall Corsa was delivered on a very wet day, driven to my house and had 135 miles on the clock.”

Vauxhall CorsaEditor Note: Hehehe, sorry about the migraine from my colourful stuff. My envelopes serve a useful purpose! My local Royal Mail sorting office recognise and know exactly where to deliver them, there is no chance of them getting lost. Website is designed to make life much less boring than other car suppliers who would have you slashing your wrists with dreariness. Your son’s car was delivered very fast, in the end. You wanted it quickly, you said he was moaning. So I arranged the fastest delivery, which involved driving it. The miles will be deducted (or added to) your contract. Trevor, I cannot be responsible for the rain 🙂 Ooooops – Ling

The Citroen C3 Aircross is a Green car yet?

I am simply faster than any other car sales website in changing these Citroen C3 Aircross 1.2 PureTech Flair 12v (110bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1199cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual details to reflect the latest info. No one can keep up with me. Often the manufacturer websites are out of date!

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!

My customers agree to adhere to a fixed mileage allowance (usually 10,000, 15,000 or 20,000 miles per annum) and they are charged for “excess” miles. This means they are far more aware of the costs involved in unneccessary journeys in their new cars. To a certain extent, my customers will consider “is my journey really neccessary?” and “would it be cheaper to do this long trip on the train?”.

Environment

I am pleased to say that the CO2 for the Citroen C3 Aircross Petrol Manual is now 109g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

My Citroen C3 Aircross 1.2 PureTech Flair 12v (110bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1199cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £173.17 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 23 payments on direct debit.

Michael says…
CarHi Ling.

Thanks for the excellent service you provided me. The car is fantastic and was delivered quicker than expected. Your friendly manner and wacky website really put me at ease and made the whole experience a pleasant one. The speed you answered every question I had was a breath of fresh air. Every promise made was kept. All be back in three years for my next car. Delivery was excellent, delivered on time by a very nice man. Best regards…

Pollutant levels on my BMW X4 Estate

All the people with orders in my system for the BMW X4 Estate 2.0 xDrive20d M Sport 16v (190bhp) Estate 5dr 1995cc Diesel 4X4 Step Auto (8 Speed) Diesel Automatic will be quite pleased by this news. I am making a change, because the environment stuff seems to have moved slightly.

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.

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 BMW X4 Estate Diesel Automatic is better than it was, at just 146g/km. It is a bit different if you look at a slightly different trim level.

My BMW X4 Estate 2.0 xDrive20d M Sport 16v (190bhp) Estate 5dr 1995cc Diesel 4X4 Step Auto (8 Speed) Diesel Automatic gearbox is only £428.05 inc VAT per month with 6 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!).

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.

Carbon Dioxide and the Peugeot Partner Van

Fuel is a fortune these days, so when the Peugeot Partner Van 1.5 BlueHDi 16v (100bhp) 950 Long Professional Van Manual 1499cc Diesel Manual has slightly changed figures, I always blog about it, because my customers say they care.

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.

Environment

I have a Master’s Degree in Environmental Quality from Bournemouth Univeristy in 2000, plus a BSc in Applied Chemistry from Jinan University, Guanzhou in 1997. So I have some idea what I am talking about, here. How many other people in the UK motor industry can say that?

Environment

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 179g/km for the Peugeot Partner Van Diesel Manual. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

My Peugeot Partner Van 1.5 BlueHDi 16v (100bhp) 950 Long Professional Van Manual 1499cc Diesel Manual gearbox is only £224.58 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 23 payments on direct debit.

Ling’s Peugeot Partner Van environment info change

I am Ling and my Peugeot Partner Van 1.5 BlueHDi 16v (100bhp) 950 Long Professional Van Manual 1499cc Diesel 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?

Physical stock is always limited, as cars cannot be made to appear by magic, there are only so many sat in corner of field. So be brave, grab a bargain and avoid me having to make phone calls to disappointed people who have left decision too late. Remember that you have to pass finance before I can reserve you a car, so allow time for that!

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!).

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Peugeot Partner Van Diesel Manual. For this car, the CO2 is now just 179g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

My Peugeot Partner Van 1.5 BlueHDi 16v (100bhp) 950 Long Professional Van Manual 1499cc Diesel Manual gearbox is only £224.58 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 23 payments on direct debit.

Environment

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.
