Peugeot offers fuel relief for drivers
In the wake of the latest budget announcement, Peugeot has announced ways for the public to keep their motoring costs down.
The latest budge statement includes an increase in tax on oil production, plus a new fair fuel stabiliser, increased rates of Vehicle Excise Duty and planned increases on company car tax.
As UK motorists will look for ways to balance the cost of motoring, Peugeot has made it clear that the best method is to simply find the most fuel-efficient vehicle you can get.
Jon Goodman, MD of Peugeot UK explained: “Fuel-efficiency determines a vehicle’s CO2 emissions, and hence the tax an owner or driver will pay, and it determines how much an owner or driver will pay at the fuel pumps, regardless of the advertised price of a litre’.
The manufacturer has been backing its message with a wide range of cars that meet various meets and deliver great fuel-efficiency. The prime example in Peugeot’s line up is the ‘Economique’ model from the Peugeot 207 supermini range.
The car emits just 99g/km of CO2 which means owners will avoid paying Vehicle Excise Duty. The ‘Economique’ model is equipped with Peugeot’s 1.6HDi 90hp diesel engine, which does not compromise on performance but can still achieve 74mpg on the Combined Drive Cycle.
Peugeot is also offering other cost saving vehicles in their line up. The Peugeot 107, for example, comes with a Euro 5 three-cylinder petrol engine, which emits just 103g/km of CO2.
In addition to offering a range of fuel-efficient models, Peugeot is also aiming to simply ownership with its unique Just Add Fuel personal finance package.
The proposal includes three years full comprehensive insurance, three years warranty, service and roadside assistance, all for a single fixed monthly payment. All Peugeot owners are required to do is add fuel, regardless of price.
