This week the price of oil was predicted by OPEC to continue increasing and reach $200 a barrel, meaning that the cost of petrol and diesel at the pumps is set to keep on rising. So it’s all the more important for motorists to be aware of the latest vehicles that can help to cut fuel bills.
Green-Car-Guide Live! 2008, likely to be the UK’s largest Green Motor Show, will feature a range of the latest energy-efficient vehicles that can help motorists and fleet operators save money on running costs. The event provides an opportunity for people to see class-leading low emission vehicles in the metal, all in one place.
Green-Car-Guide Live! 2008 will take place on Thursday 12th June 2008 at the new award-winning Arena & Convention Centre in Liverpool. The event is aimed at businesses and other organisations with vehicle fleets, and entrance is free, simply register online at www.Green-Car-Guide.com.
The low carbon vehicles exhibited will range from city cars through to executive cars and light commercial vehicles. Vehicle technology will include petrol, diesel, biofuel, hybrid and electric.
A certain star of the show is the new SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive. One of the UK’s few conventional-engined cars with CO2 emissions under 100g/km, it’s exempt from road tax. Even better, it averages more than 74mpg while still offering peppy performance and a price tag that, from £11,000, won’t break the bank.
There will also be a number of ‘show stoppers’ on display, ranging from the pioneering Oaktec Honda hybrid rally car to a diesel-electric Land Rover Defender. Commercial vehicles will include zero-emission electric vans, and HGVs powered by gas. There will even be a tractor and a racing truck that both use 100% sustainable biodiesel, as well as an innovative off-road rally Range Rover that uses engine oil made from plants.
The event will also include a seminar programme covering subjects such as an overview of the latest green vehicles and the real-life facts about biofuels that you won’t find in the media. In addition there will be a series of technical workshops run by Cenex showcasing UK supply chain capability, particularly in the commercial vehicle sector.
GreenerFleet™, a range of solutions that allow real-time monitoring and reduction of vehicle emissions, will be showcased by the show’s main sponsor, Masternaut Three X. These solutions include a live carbon calculator and mobile resource management systems that increase efficiency, lower costs and improve sustainability.
Green-Car-Guide Live! 2008 is organised by Green-Car-Guide.com, in association with Merseytravel’s ECOtravel Bureau, and sponsored by Masternaut Three X GreenerFleet, Cenex and the Northwest Regional Development Agency.
