JonathanMarch 22, 2011

Those wondering which make to go for when considering car leasing may be swayed by the results of one awards show.

The Fleet News 2011 Awards has presented Peugeot with the Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year prize at its annual ceremony in London, citing the company’s dedication to bringing down carbon emissions.

Simon Harris, deputy editor at Fleet News, praised Peugeot for its upcoming plans to introduce a new electric model, low-CO2 diesel vehicles and the world’s first diesel-electric hybrid.

Phil Robson, fleet director for Peugeot UK, said on accepting the award: “We are absolutely delighted. This is a major accolade for us when efficiency and lower CO2 emissions are top of every fleet buyer’s agenda.”

EDF Energy recently received the first of Peugeot’s iOn electric cars, which has been accepted under the government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles scheme to provide a £5,000 grant to those looking to lease the model.
