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

Emma says…

Possible enviro banding change on the Citroen Grand C4 Spacetourer Estate

If you are interested in CO2 stuff, then read this. I have a new figure for the Citroen Grand C4 Spacetourer Estate 1.2 PureTech Feel 12v (130bhp) (7 seats) Estate 5dr 1199cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual and I am updating it on my website now.

Environment

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!

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?

Working it out from the tables, the CO2 is just 116g/km for the Citroen Grand C4 Spacetourer Estate Petrol Manual. There are a few cars in this range, so different specs will give slightly different CO2 values.

Environmental Data

My Citroen Grand C4 Spacetourer Estate 1.2 PureTech Feel 12v (130bhp) (7 seats) Estate 5dr 1199cc Petrol Manual (6 Speed) Petrol Manual gearbox is only £190.96 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!).

CitroenThis price on my Citroen Grand C4 Spacetourer 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! £190.96 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.

Winning the environmental award (2008 Best Environmentalist in the car industry) was very pleasing for me as it meant I was being recognised for my hard work. I’m the the ONLY new car supplier to display and promote environmental info for ALL new cars, on the web! Please note I have pioneered availability of environmental information on the internet. Using the internet to research and buy new cars is the most environmentally friendly method, by miles.

Use higher gears, as soon as traffic conditions allow.

Here is a comment about my website (I have disguised the email address)

Environmental Data

I haven’t seen a site like this at all on the whole of the web or internet (which ever it is). If only there were more of you about we would all be rich (but then I suppose you would be broke). Anyway, this site is brill and now in my bookmarks.

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.

Inbetween all my bills and bank statements, I receive customer letters. Here one I pulled out to read from Richard Day, but I actually got it a while ago. It is about the delivery of their Ford Fiesta.

Richard says…
carHi Ling, I’m really enjoying my new Ford Fiesta and I can’t stop telling people about your crazy website and just how fantastic your service is and how well you have treated me throughout. The experience I have had has been totally refreshing, completely professional, hilariously funny and extremely helpful. It’s great to keep in touch and I definitely want my next car from you.

Fuel economy and CO2 change on my Mazda 6 Estate

Making your car greener is important, so it is nice when you can do it just by looking at the new Mazda 6 Estate 2.2 d SE-L Nav+ 16v (150bhp) Estate 5dr 2191cc Diesel Manual (6 Speed) Diesel Manual. The CO2 values have changed, making it more attractive.

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.

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

For this brand new Mazda 6 Estate Diesel Manual, 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 Mazda 6 Estate 2.2 d SE-L Nav+ 16v (150bhp) Estate 5dr 2191cc Diesel Manual (6 Speed) Diesel Manual gearbox is only £323.00 inc VAT per month with 6 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit.

One of my best awards was the 2008 best non-franchise environmentalist, awarded by Automotive Management. The web is fickle, I have noticed LINGsCARS.com is the ONLY new car supplier to display and promote environmental info for ALL new cars, on the web! My website won “BEST non-franchised WEBSITE 2007” in the Automotive Management Awards.

Ford FiestaEditor Note: Claire, well, massive backlogs at the Ford factories at the time you got your car. It did take a long time to be built, sorry about that. But good things come, in the end 🙂 These Titanium Fiestas are just great! Glad you liked the LINGO. – Ling
