OPEC predicts that oil prices will continue increasing and reach USD 200 a barrel, resulting in higher costs for petrol and diesel. Motorists can gain control of the problem by seeing the latest in vehicle design and technology that can help to slash fuel bills at Green-Car-Guide Live! 2008. Backed by greener fleet technology innovator Masternaut Three X, the Green-Car-Guide Live! 2008 is the UK’s largest Green Motor Show that will display a range of the latest energy-efficient vehicles that can help motorists and fleet operators save money on running costs. The event takes place on Thursday 12th June 2008 at the new award-new Liverpool Echo Arena and Convention Centre. The entrance is free by pre-registering online at www.Green-Car-Guide.com.
As the event’s main sponsor, Masternaut Three X, will showcase its groundbreaking GreenerFleet range of solutions that allow real-time monitoring and reduction of vehicle emissions. These solutions include a live carbon calculator and mobile resource management systems that increase efficiency, lower costs and improve sustainability.
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.
It will be one of the first chances anywhere in the UK to see ‘in the metal’ the new SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive, one of the UK’s only two cars with emissions under 100g/km CO2, thus making it fully exempt from road tax. Even better, it averages over 74mpg.
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. Commercial vehicles will include zero-emission electric vans, and HGVs powered by gas. There will even be a tractor and a racing truck that both use 100% sustainable biodiesel, as well as an off-road rally Range Rover that uses engine oil made from plants.
The event will also include a seminar programme covering subjects such as an overview of the latest green vehicles and the real-life facts about biofuels that you won’t find in the media.
Martin Port, Managing Director of sponsor Masternaut Three X, said: “We are delighted to be involved in this event as we are extremely committed to driving down the environmental impact of road vehicles. We have demonstrated this with many of our customers who run fleets of vehicles of all types, ranging from HGVs through to small white vans. Everyone has a part to play and we can no longer afford to be ignorant of technology that not only cuts fuel costs but also improves the outlook for our environment.”
