Ford ECOnetic vans 'help firm reduce emissions'

Ford ECOnetic vans 'help firm reduce emissions'

A number of Ford vans are helping one firm to meet its own emissions targets.

Gas and electricity metering service company OnStream opted to use the Ford Transit ECOnetic vans for its project to introduce smart meters into people's homes, helping to set an example for energy reduction targets.

Operations delivery manager at OnStream, Andy Spence, said it was "wholly appropriate" for the company's technicians to be using Fords to help meet energy reduction targets.

Direct sales manager at Ford, Stephen Gafson, said that the manufacturer is one of the first to be transferring technology from its cars to its vans in an effort to reduce fuel consumption.

"Ford ECOnetic technology provides great benefits for companies looking not only to make fleet cost savings but also to use fuel-saving technology to help meet energy reduction targets," said Mr Spence.

Ford claims that its ECOnetic system uses "innovative engineering" to allow drivers to be as fuel efficient as possible, while not compromising the overall driving experience.ADNFCR-3205-ID-19905499-ADNFCR
