An Arval report has found that the average CO2 of cars delivered to customers in 2014 was 114.4g/km. Figures for the second quarter of 2014 released in the BVRLA Quarterly Leasing Survey suggested that the national average emissions for new vehicles registered were 123.8g/km.
This continued reduction in CO2 is likely to be the result of a combination of factors, including:
- The improved emissions of new vehicles entering the market
- A desire from businesses to limit their environmental impact
- The direct link for drivers between Benefit-in-Kind and the environmental performance of their vehicle
- Manufacturers releasing models with smaller, turbo-charged Petrol engines which reduce CO2, improve MPG, and reduce overall fuel costs.
