Sussex County Cricket Club (SCCC) have been provided with 15 Ford vehicles, including Ford Mondeo, Ford Focus ECOnetic models as well as the Ford Kuga, which boasts lowest CO2 emissions in its class. Three Ford Transit vans will also be used by grounds staff and to transport team kit.
Apex, Sussex CCC's new official vehicle partner has provided the team with the fleet of models for use by the players - including England star Monty Panesar, vice-captain Murray Goodwin and overseas star Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, as well as the County's support staff.
SCCC marketing and communications manager, Trevor Mould said: "We are very much aiming to reduce the club's carbon footprint so the adoption of these latest, low-CO2 Ford models on to our fleet has helped significantly. In addition, the players find them ideal for their needs."
Apex Car Rental managing director, Roland Standley said: "We have been a club supporter for many seasons. It is great to see the Sussex players enjoying their new Ford vehicles and that the County is taking environmental issues to heart by working hard to achieve a reduction in emissions."
Ford UK director of fleet development, Russell McGill, said: "Sussex County Cricket Club's fleet choice was carefully considered and demonstrates how the latest vehicles from Ford's environmentally advanced range can help reduce an organisation's carbon footprint."
