Eco-conscious construction firm adds Ford Transit ECOnetic to fleet
The Ford Transit ECOnetic features a range of ECOnetic technologies including Smart Regenerative Charging and Advanced Battery Management System as standard and an optional ECO pack, including Auto-Start-Stop. Along with optimised engine mapping and longer gearing and aerodynamic wheel covers and a shift indicator, this helps the vehicle to achieve a class-leading 189g/km CO2 figure and a combined fuel economy cycle of 39.2mpg.
Gelder Group fleet manager, David Leak, said: 'The Gelder Group is very environmentally aware and we are constantly looking for new ways to operate in a more sustainable manner. The new Ford Transit ECOnetic, with its improved fuel economy and lower emissions, is exactly what we were looking for and supports what we are aiming to achieve.'
The Lincolnshire-based firm is adding the vans to its fleet of over 200 vehicles, of which about 80% are supplied by Ford.
