Last week’s Budget, together with the ever-rising price of oil and fears over CO2 emissions, has created further pressure to purchase energy-efficient vehicles. However there are few opportunities for people to see a range of class-leading low emission vehicles in the metal, all in one place.
provides an answer to this – it’s a Green Motor Show displaying the latest energy-efficient vehicles. The event is organised by Green-Car-Guide.com, in association with Merseytravel’s ECOtravel Bureau, and sponsored by Masternaut GreenerFleet, Cenex and the Northwest Development Agency.
Green-Car-Guide Live! 2008 will take place on Thursday 12th June 2008 at the new award-winning Arena & Convention Centre in Liverpool. The event is aimed at businesses and other organisations with vehicle fleets, and entrance is free, although admission will only be possible by pre-registration at the Green-Car-Guide.com website.
The low carbon vehicles exhibited will range from city cars through to executive cars and light commercial vehicles. Vehicle technology will include petrol, diesel, biofuel, hybrid and electric. Visitors can see ‘in the metal’ many of the vehicles that appear in the Green-Car-Guide e-Book available at www.Green-Car-Guide.com. There will also be a number of ‘show stoppers’ on display, ranging from the pioneering Oaktec Honda hybrid rally car to a diesel-electric Land Rover Defender.
The event will also include a seminar programme covering subjects such as an overview of the latest green vehicles, biofuels, and real time monitoring of CO2 emissions.
Speaking about the event, Green-Car-Guide.com founder Paul Clarke said “Our experience of working in this sector shows that businesses and other fleet users are not aware of the latest range of low carbon vehicles. There is a perception that ‘green cars’ are predominantly small electric type-cars that are not suitable for business use. However in reality there are many efficient cars that could help businesses lower their carbon emissions, save money, and therefore become more competitive.”
“The entire motor industry is undergoing a seismic shift to bring low emission vehicles to market, yet there is still little opportunity for car buyers to be able to see a collection of such vehicles in one place; Green-Car-Guide Live! 2008 aims to address this.”
Martin Port, Managing Director of the event’s main sponsor, Masternaut GreenerFleet, comments: “We are delighted to support this event as it is a practical demonstration of how businesses can become more efficient and save costs by adopting lower emission vehicles. People are likely to be surprised by the ever-increasing range of energy-efficient vehicles that are now available.”
