Vauxhall’s green reputation goes before it

EcovelocityEcoVelocity is only in its second year, but the London-based show has proven to be incredibly popular with green and electric car lovers from all backgrounds.

Visitors to this year’s event were markedly up on last year’s debut event. During this show, though, Vauxhall was named one of the stars of the show – and they didn’t even have to lift a finger!

A large number of the 58,000 people that attended EcoVelocity were surveyed as to what they perceived the greenest car manufacturer to be. Honda came first, with Vauxhall second and Nissan third.

When the people at EcoVelocity surveyed buyers that were looking to purchase a car in the next year though, Vauxhall came out on top, with Toyota second and BMW third. So, Vauxhall is ingrained in the public mindset as a green-car champion and one that offers the best value. Result!

But is all as it seems? Giles Brown, EcoVelocity managing director, says, “There may well be some arguing before a buying decision is made – men placed Honda at the top, followed by Toyota and Vauxhall, while women put Nissan at the top of their list, followed by Vauxhall, with Peugeot and Honda in joint third place.

But he adds: “The Vauxhall Ampera was certainly one of the stars of the show, it’s a vehicle that delivers a no compromise option for motorists wanting to purchase a greener and cleaner vehicle.”

Part of this public perception can be attributed to models such as the Ampera Earth. The Earth is available to order now from £29,995 including Plug in Car Grant.
The Vauxhall Ampera has previously been named car of the year, so it’s no surprise that Vauxhall’s reputation for quality goes before it with the buying public, and people that want a Vauxhall lease. Vauxhall, like a number of manufacturers, is looking to a greener future for both itself and its consumers, as proved at EcoVelocity 2012.

Author Bio is the best place online for buyers to get an affordable, cost-effective Vauxhall lease for personal or commercial purposes. Vauxhall-lease’s offers are some of the most competitive on the web today, and their team of Vauxhall experts can advise anybody and everybody on the right car for their needs.
