Ford could help ladies go green
Women drivers looking to buy a new car that can help them keep running costs down and do their bit for the planet may want to pay a visit to a local Ford dealership.
The manufacturer has claimed more people are opting for models from its green ECOnetic range.
Registrations of the autos it offers with CO2 emissions of less than 120 g/km rose by 71 per cent in the first six months of the year, compared with the same period in 2008.
The ECOnetic version of the Fiesta boasts emissions of 98 g/km, while the Focus edition releases 114 g/km of CO2.
Ford highlighted the benefits of such cars after it was revealed driving experts from BP Ultimate would be coaching volunteers behind the wheel of some of the manufacturer's models to show them the best ways to improve fuel economy.
Meanwhile, women drivers who cannot afford to shell out for a brand new motor may find booking their current auto in for regular car servicing can help keep it running at its most efficient.
