ANOTHER COUNCIL ANNOUNCES HYBRID TRANSIT INVESTMENT
The newly introduced Transit van hybrid scheme seems to be gathering momentum, with another local council announcing that they have signed up for eight of the groundbreaking new vehicles.
Conwy County Borough Council in Wales has been the latest authority to invest in the specially modified Ford LCVs, which follows on from a recent announcement by their colleagues in Swansea who pledged to buy 27 of the Transits.
The purchase of these vehicles, which has been funded by the Department for Transport's Low Carbon Vehicle Procurement Programme (LCVPP), will lead to significantly reduced fuel costs - equating to an annual saving of as much as £1,265 per Transit van - and CO2 emissions for the council.
Ford is at the cutting edge when it comes to minimising emissions in the automotive industry, and all of the currently available new Ford vans represent a greener, more fuel efficient way of running a commercial vehicle.
