Birmingham are going green!

Vantage Toyota Birmingham play hosts to the Energy Saving Trust

The NFDA, the National Franchised Dealer Association, have joined forces with the Energy Saving Trust to bring the ULEV roadshow to cities all around the UK.

The Energy Saving Trust are an independent, impartial organisation who aim to give expert advice based on world-renowned research to enable consumers in make informed energy efficient choices, facilitating a more sustainable lifestyle.

Vantage Toyota Birmingham have agreed to host the Birmingham leg of their roadshow and are excited to hear what they have to say.

Why hold a roadshow?

There are a lot of myths and legends surrounding energy efficient vehicles, one of the biggest challenges at the moment is getting the word out about how the technology works and dispelling some of the rumours that surround ULEV's.

ULEV stands for Ultra Low Emission Vehicles. With all shapes and sizes and a wide array of technologies making up this sector electric or plug-in vehicles are a positive step towards a greener future.There are government grants available towards the cost of low emission vehicles and also a grant towards the installation of a homecharger for their vehicle.

Andrew Benfield, Group Director of Transport at the Energy Saving Trust, says:

“Our work has shown that ULEVs not only save consumers money in the long run, but are better for the environment when it comes to energy use, yet awareness around the benefits of these vehicles is relatively low. Our partnership with Trusted Dealers will allow us to speak directly to consumers and debunk common misconceptions about green cars. We want to give drivers the real facts to about ULEVs so they can consider one as their next vehicle.”

For over 40 years Toyota has been at the forefront for the development of energy conscious solutions and we now have a great lead with 23 full hybrid models available in 80 countries and regions across the globe. We want to encourage that commitment to reducing our carbon footprint at a local level.

The threat of climate change is not going away, we all need to be proactive in finding more energy conscious solutions for our everyday life. Perhaps a ULEV could be the right solution for you? We are proud to be able to enable the Energy Saving Trust to reach out to people face to face to explain the choices and help that is available to facilitate a greener lifestyle.
