A number of manufacturers have concentrated their efforts to improve the efficiency of their vehicles on small diesel engined cars, and have achieved very impressive figures, both for CO2 emissions and fuel economy. The diesel particulate filter has played a large part in improving the efficiency of these vehicles and reducing particulate pollution, as has reducing the vehicle’s weight and stop – start engine technology. There are a large number of these vehicles on the Green Motion fleet, including;
The Peugeot 108 1.2 VTI – 99 g/Km
The Peugeot 208 1.4 HDI – 98 g/Km
The Peugeot 308 1.6 HDI – 93 g/Km
The Honda Civic i - DTEC – 94g /Km

The revolutionary hybrid system is the intelligent combination of an electric motor and a petrol or diesel engine which results in good performance, outstanding fuel efficiency and exceptional environmental awareness.
Hybrid engines are normally smaller than conventional vehicles, as they gain assistance from the battery unit when travelling up-hill or accelerating quickly.
Hybrid vehicles can often recover braking energy and use it to charge the battery. Green Motion Vehicle Rental is pleased to offer the Toyota Prius and the Toyota Auris hybrid for rental at selected branches.
There are a large number of hybrid vehicles available in the UK market, amongst the mainstream models are the Vauxhall Ampera, the BMW i3 Range Extender, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, the Toyota Prius, the Toyota Yaris Hybrid and the Peugeot 508 RXH.
An electric car is solely powered by an electric motor rather than a petrol or diesel engine. From the outside you would probably have no idea that a car is electric. When you drive an electric car often the only thing that alerts you to its true nature is its silence.
Electric vehicles, with zero congestion charges and zero road tax, are both quiet and pollution free. All those 'zeros' add up to big savings over the life of the vehicle with close to zero effect on our environment.
A number of manufacturers have introduced electric cars into the UK market. Amongst the mainstream models available are the BMW i3, the Renault ZOE, the Nissan Leaf, the Smart ForTwo ED and the Mitsubishi iMiEV
This availability is likely to increase over time, as these vehicles gain public acceptance, and the charging infrastructure develops.
Green Motion Vehicle Rental has Nissan Leaf electric vehicles available for hire in selected branches.
