FORD TRANSIT CHOSEN FOR HOUSING COMPANY’S GREEN FLEET
A company based in Preston which specialises in the carbon friendly regeneration of social housing has announced that Transit vans will form a major part in their ongoing drive towards achieving lower emissions throughout their fleet.
Officials from the group have announced that they will be investing a total of around £1.7 million towards securing a new, ‘greener' fleet, which will consist of the Transit LWB, the Ford Fiesta 1.6 Ecotec and one other vehicle.
The group decided upon the vehicles they would use after conducting a wide-ranging review of their existing fleet, and then putting 107 different models to the test in order to decide upon which would offer the best in terms of emissions and fuel saving capability.
Consistently named as the best selling of the currently available new Ford vans and all other light commercial models, the Transit is now also leading the way in terms of high efficiency professional driving.
