G3 to switch whole fleet to ULEVs by 2020

Vehicle auction specialist G3 Remarketing has committed to moving its entire inhouse fleet over to Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) by the end of the year.

The firm’s fleet has already switched from zero to 75% plug-in hybrids in the last year and the target is to now switch the remaining fleet vehicles before the end of the year. G3 has also said it would be open to running fully electric vehicles if relevant for the user/mileage.

The business has invested in specialist driver training for their employees to help them understand the most efficient way to drive their new vehicles. It’s also

in the process of installing six onsite rapid-charge points to facilitate the expansion at its Leeds headquarters.  These will service the new fleet, whilst also supporting the ever-increasing number of hybrid and electric vehicles being offered in their auctions by their vendors.

G3’s joint managing director Matt Dale commented: “We believe that 2019 will see a further shift in perspective in the used vehicle market in terms of acceptance of hybrid vehicles, especially in the fleet and leasing sector. By creating this initiate now, we believe we can not only encourage but also support our buyers and vendors to make the move over to hybrid vehicles sooner rather than later.”
