My Renault Kangoo Ze CO2 g/km levels

Updating the Renault Kangoo Ze ZEV (60bhp) ZE ELECTRIC ML20 44kW 33kWh Business Van Electric Auto 1cc Electric Automatic quickly is brilliant because Google loves to use me as the choice for listing these cars.

Renault Kangoo Ze

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.

I am determined to create momentum in this dinosaur industry to make it aware of environmental responsibilities. Please ask your local dealer what additional steps they are taking. Please be aware of their advertising, their business methods and their environmental impact and question them; “What are you doing to exceed the legal minimum requirements?”.

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Renault Kangoo Ze Electric Automatic. For this car, the CO2 is now just 119g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

My Renault Kangoo Ze ZEV (60bhp) ZE ELECTRIC ML20 44kW 33kWh Business Van Electric Auto 1cc Electric Automatic gearbox is only £200.58 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! £200.58 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!

Do not compromise safety but be aware that the use of onboard electrical devices increases fuel consumption.

Environmental Data

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

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

Neil says…
carI thought that Lingo was very easy to follow and very useful, especially live chat when you have a question, Ling responds very quickly. Ling was very helpful and kept me informed of what was going on. Loved the freebies through the post. Would recommend anybody to Ling, as she is lovely and friendly. Hope to speak to you soon. Excellent delivery of my Corsa, the dealer just rang and delivered as Ling said they would. Very helpful.

My Mercedes E Class Coupe CO2 g/km levels

Fuel is a fortune these days, so when the Mercedes E Class Coupe 2.0 E220d 16v (194bhp) AMG Line Premium Coupe 2dr 1950cc Diesel Automatic has slightly changed figures, I always blog about it, because my customers say they care.

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.

Environmental Data

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!

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 119g/km for the Mercedes E Class Coupe Diesel Automatic. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

My Mercedes E Class Coupe 2.0 E220d 16v (194bhp) AMG Line Premium Coupe 2dr 1950cc Diesel Automatic gearbox is only £360.91 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!).

Environmental Data

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.

Ling’s Renault Kangoo Ze environment info change

The impact of CO2 is important. I always compare my figures with the Government data, so when it changes, like on this Renault Kangoo Ze Electric Automatic, 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.

Environment

Mercedes-Benz told me “Mercedes-Benz dealerships have a limited amount of space available in which to advertise. However, all of the dealership’s websites do include a link to the main site Mercedes-Benz.com where anyone in the world with an interest in obtaining specific environmental information about any Mercedes-Benz vehicle can easily find it. Environmental information is also available in brochures that can be obtained at any dealership.” Well, perhaps Head Office at Mercedes-Benz restricts the amount of web space available to each dealer? It’s amazing that they use “space” as an argument for not displaying this info online on each dealer’s site. Web-space is virtually unlimited! A customer should not need to go to World Headquaters to find it (and even then it is not comparative)!

For this brand new Renault Kangoo Ze Electric Automatic, the latest CO2 figure is just 119g/km. When I chose this trim, it was because I have a few of these available. Different trims will have different CO2.

My Renault Kangoo Ze ZEV (60bhp) ZE ELECTRIC ML20 44kW 33kWh Business Van Electric Auto 1cc Electric Automatic gearbox is only £200.58 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 23 payments on direct debit.

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 Catherine Johnston. It was sent to me quite a while ago!

Catherine says…
carI’m loving my Nissan Qashqai Ling – but that I could get anywhere. What is in short supply nowadays is good customer service and you provide that by the bucket load. Your efficient, humorous service is rare but oh so welcome and you made the whole process of leasing a car totally stress free. You certainly have the X Factor Ling – X-cellent, X-ceptional and X-traordinarily crazy!

I am amazed the Post Office needs to be privatised, the amount that my customers spend sending me letters about their new cars. Here, Terry Britchford explains how they are getting on with their Skoda Fabia

Terry says…

I would rather deal with her than boring dealers who are complacent and think that customers grow on trees and that they will always be there no matter how little they try to get the business. I give my business to people that REALLY want it, not TWATS that expect it.”

Ling’s Renault Kangoo Ze environment info change

I am Ling and my Renault Kangoo Ze ZEV (60bhp) ZE ELECTRIC ML20 44kW 33kWh Business Van Electric Auto 1cc Electric Automatic 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?

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).

Environment

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).

Environment

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.

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.

Petrol consumption and my BMW 2 Series Coupe

Everyone moans that things go up and up and up. Well, the CO2 on the BMW 2 Series Coupe 1.5 218i M Sport (Nav) 12v (136bhp) (4 seats) Coupe 2dr 1499cc Petrol Step Auto (8 Speed) Petrol Automatic has just come down! What a result! This post is to let you know.

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!

BMW 2 Series Coupe

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.
