Our fleet team here at Avis have been feeling blue recently and I for one am glad as I can proudly say we have introduced the Mercedes-Benz E220 BlueEFFICIENCY model to our Select Series range of cars!
At Avis, we have always taken our environmental responsibilities seriously and are committed to measuring our impact on the environment and improving this situation. By introducing the Mercedes-Benz BlueEFFICIENCY models to our fleet we are actively taking steps to do this.
BlueEFFICIENCY technology is designed to help drivers lower the environmental impact of their cars through lower emissions – Mercedes’ longer term goal is to achieve emission-free driving. But the benefit is not only to the environment as the technology allows lower running costs (meaning more money left in your wallet) whilst maintaining the high level of performance we have come to expect.
I have to admit to being more familiar with some of the innovative changes within the BlueEFFICIENCY model and believe it will soon be standard in most new vehicles. Items such as the start/stop engine, low-rolling resistance tyres, improved aerodynamics and weight saving for example. Some of the other changes such as adaptive power steering that only activates when needed, optimised energy management for the cars auxiliary systems and longer gear ratios caught my eye in terms of what is also being done to provide cleaner more efficient motoring.
