LC Energy are ecstatic to announce the addition of a new Golf GTE hybrid vehicle to its fleet, marking the first steps towards a greener fleet. Combining both electric and petrol technology, the Golf GTE boasts 0g/km Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions while on electric power, up to 40 g/km CO2 Emissions on combined power and a range of up to 514 miles (166mpg).
The transition from a diesel vehicle to a hybrid electric/petrol one brings with it significant environmental benefits including reduced CO2 emissions and a significant reduction in the emission of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM). Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM) emitted by diesel engines are some of the leading causes of air pollution in urban areas as well as being known carcinogens and heavily linked to respiratory diseases. Another benefit of the hybrid technology is the reduction in noise pollution, which is perfect for when being used in urban areas.
The reduction of CO2 emissions and air pollution are key target areas in LC Energy’s sustainability plan. With another Golf GTE on order and more hybrid/electric vehicles planned, the addition of this first Golf GTE is a fantastic step towards embracing greener transportation, paving the way towards a carbon neutral fleet and helping LC Energy reduce its carbon footprint.
