The new cars, which have been supplied through LeasePlan, will replace older Mondeos, which are driven by customer-facing employees, and will reduce CO2 emissions by 4.8 tonnes per vehicle, as well as allowing for a quieter engine and enhanced driver comfort.

Gareth Lewis, Hilti general manager for Great Britain and region head for Northern Europe, commented: 'We partner with like-minded suppliers who are experts in their field, such as Ford who have developed ECOnetic technology to provide us with a commercial vehicle that is best-in-class, in terms of fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions.'

Ralston Wild, LeasePlan account manager, said: 'We are delighted to secure this deal for Hilti, which sees LeasePlan help its client fulfil environmental objectives without compromising the driver experience.'
