The Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up is a Green car yet?

CO2 CO2, CO2. It always seems to go up. The Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up 2.3 DI-D 16v (150bhp) Double Cab Warrior 4WD Pickup Diesel Manual (6 Speed) 2268cc Diesel Manual seems to have reversed this trend. If you choose one of these, you will be pleased. Lower CO2 means lower fuel consumption.

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.

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.

Environment

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 119g/km for the Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up Diesel Manual. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

My Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up 2.3 DI-D 16v (150bhp) Double Cab Warrior 4WD Pickup Diesel Manual (6 Speed) 2268cc Diesel Manual gearbox is only £331.93 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 47 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!).

MitsubishiThis price on my Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up 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! £331.93 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.

Environment

Remember I won the best non-franchise environmentalist 2008 in the Automotive Industry Awards. Don’t let these manufacturers fool you; LINGsCARS.com is the ONLY new car supplier to display and promote environmental info for ALL new cars, on the web! 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.

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

Every day, I get more of these little comments emailed to me –

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.

New CO2 figure for the Mercedes Vito Van

CO2 CO2, CO2. It always seems to go up. The Mercedes Vito Van ZEV (116bhp) eVITO L2 ELECTRIC 85kW 41kWh Pure Van Auto 1cc Electric Automatic seems to have reversed this trend. If you choose one of these, you will be pleased. Lower CO2 means lower fuel consumption.

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.

Mercedes Vito Van

I am determined that LINGsCARS.com will go further than anyone else in this industry to exceed the legal minimum information disclosure that 99% of UK franchised car dealers refuse to go beyond (and hide behind, IMHO). So, I make sure that at-a-glance CO2, fuel economy and the coloured “greeness indicator bars” are displayed clearly on my homepage car listings for easy comparison purposes.

Environment

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the Mercedes Vito Van Electric Automatic. For this car, the CO2 is now just 149g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

My Mercedes Vito Van ZEV (116bhp) eVITO L2 ELECTRIC 85kW 41kWh Pure Van Auto 1cc Electric Automatic gearbox is only £320.33 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 11 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!).

The external noise emitted by passenger cars has been controlled since 1929 when the Motor Cars (Excessive Noise) regulations were introduced. New cars are now required to meet Europe-wide noise limits. These have been progressively reduced from 82 decibels (dB(A)) in 1978 to the current limit of 74 dB(A) established in 1996. This means it would take 7 new vehicles to make the same amount of noise as a vehicle that just meets the pre-1978 limits.

Fuel economy and CO2 change on my Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up

Looking at my records, the Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up 2.3 DI-D 16v (150bhp) Double Cab Warrior 4WD Pickup Diesel Manual (6 Speed) 2268cc Diesel Manual has changed today, so I have updated the environmental information on my website. You have to laugh that I can beat Mitsubishi to this update!

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).

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 Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up Diesel Manual is better than it was, at just 119g/km. It is a bit different if you look at a slightly different trim level.

My Mitsubishi L200 Double Cab Pick-up 2.3 DI-D 16v (150bhp) Double Cab Warrior 4WD Pickup Diesel Manual (6 Speed) 2268cc Diesel Manual gearbox is only £331.93 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 47 payments on direct debit.

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.

I’ve updated the enviro stuff on this Renault Kangoo Ze

Fuel is a fortune these days, so when the Renault Kangoo Ze ZEV (60bhp) ZE ELECTRIC ML20 44kW 33kWh Business Van Electric Auto 1cc Electric Automatic has slightly changed figures, I always blog about it, because my customers say they care.

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.
