IT seems we weren’t the only people to rate the low-tax Mercedes E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid.
The Mercedes was the winner of the Business Car Manager SME Company Car of the Year (click here for more), delivering prestige, reduced CO2 emissions, and low company car tax.
These are exactly the sort of attributes that convinced London Executive, a London-based luxury car service SME in the city, to replace a third of their 460 fleet with the diesel-electric hybrid Mercedes.
London Executive says that the Mercedes has reduced the company’s carbon footprint while allowing them to continue offering a luxury service at affordable prices..
Already London Executive says that it has London’s newest and largest hybrid fleet.
But it wants to go further.
“Within two years we hope to have fully converted our fleet to Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC Hybrids,” said managing director Adam Harvey.
“We don’t see being green as an alternative way of getting around the city – it’ll be the only way we will operate our fleet at London Executive at no extra cost to our clients.”
