Car loans help drivers go green

The government has launched a new rankings system to help drivers find the cleanest car – enabling motorists to cut their fuel use and car costs, particularly when also taking car finance.

The government has launched a new rankings system to help drivers find the cleanest car – enabling motorists to cut their fuel use and car costs, particularly when also taking car finance.

The lists show the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of each vehicle, allowing drivers to search by the class of car they need, whether they prefer an automatic or manual transmission, and the type of fuel.

Compiled with What Car? magazine the rankings are aimed at helping drivers cut their carbon footprint, which in turn helps reduce the cost of motoring by cutting your petrol use.

In addition, taking a car credit or car finance deal can seriously bring down your monthly outgoings by spreading the cost of buying a car over a series of manageable repayments.

"Climate change affects everyone and everyone can make a contribution to tackling it. By choosing the car with the most fuel efficient engine in its class, drivers could reduce their engine CO2 emissions by 24 per cent and potentially save a quarter on fuel costs," said transport minister Jim Fitzpatrick.

"So the message is simple - the car you choose can help reduce your impact on the environment, and help save money," he added.
