E.ON, one of the UK's largest power and gas companies, has taken delivery 340 new Ford Fiesta 1.6 litre TDCi ECOnetic hatchback, which will be used by home energy advisors.
E.ON operates a fleet of 4100 cars and light commercials, and is among the leading providers of green power in the UK. 64% of its vehicles are Fords, which have been used by E.ON for more than 20 years.
The new Ford Fiesta models will be replacing previous generation Fiesta models used by home energy consultants during the last three years. Other than E.ON's livery ,the Ford Fiestas will be supplied in standard form, and contract hired from Lex Autolease. The vehicles are expected to cover 20,000 a year on average which will include personal and business use.
Nina Hughes, Fleet Development Manager, Business Services, said: "We have had good feedback from the drivers of our Ford Fiestas, and the lower CO2 emissions of the new Fiesta ECOnetic models will help us deliver on our lower emissions policy as well as providing reduced fuel consumption.
"As a company we have an overall fleet CO2 reduction target of 40 per cent by the year 2020, having achieved reductions exceeding 10 per cent a year, since 2008. We are expecting these Ford cars to further help in achieving our goal."
The Ford Fiesta Edge ECOnetic provides 78.5mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 95g/km, meaning it is exempt from road tax.
The Ford Fiesta Edge standard features include air conditioning, electric/heated mirrors, front electric windows, MP3/CD player, ABS, multiple airbags, traction control, electronic stability programme, immobiliser and remote central locking.
