The UK’s commercial vehicles could be saving £2.6 billion on fuel costs

With the UK’s commercial fleet show on at the NEC Birmingham this week, fleet managers will be heading there in their thousands. They will be assessing the benefits of using ultra-low emission vehicles and research has shown that they will be very impressed.

A figure of £1,459 has been given as the potential annual saving for each vehicle that makes the switch to ultra-low emission. That accumulates to a figure of £2.6 billion of potential fuel savings for the UK’s commercial vehicles.

Rising energy costs in the pipeline

While policy mechanisms intended to drive decarbonisation and ensure security of supply add costs to households’ energy bills, the government expects that by 2020 its interventions will mean that domestic consumers are paying less than would otherwise have been the case.
