Bioethanol Renault accessible with car credit

Renault has announced that its popular Mégane will be the first of its models sold in Britain to offer a bioethanol engine, a green motoring option affordable for all with car finance.

Renault has announced that its popular Mégane will be the first of its models sold in Britain to offer a bioethanol engine, a green motoring option affordable for all with car finance.

The car – which will be available towards the end of this year – runs on E85, a blend of petrol and at least 85 per cent ethanol designed to reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment.

The vehicle's engine is based on the Mégane's popular 1.6 16V and adapted using the experience the company has gained building E100 cars for south America.

Renault claims that by buying an E85 vehicle a motorist can enjoy 70 per cent fewer carbon emissions over the lifetime of the vehicle, helping assuage the concerns of the growing number of environmentally conscious motorists.

And the new Mégane may also prove popular as fleet vehicles, with companies awarded a two per cent tax break for using an E85 car.

Buying one of these progressive vehicles can be greatly aided by arranging car finance or car credit, allowing you to spread the cost of green car ownership over a series of affordable repayments.
