Ultra-low emissions in both our main taxis mean with both of our hybrid vehicles, both the Ford Mondeo and the Ford Tourneo offer the environment like many taxis in Dorset minimal harm over all. Unleaded engines built today generally have higher emissions than most diesel cars that are hybrid built, and with hybrid-built diesels the mileage overall offers a cost-effective way of our main vehicles doing the job we need them to do, as a whole in the industry we work within.
The Ford Mondeo Titanium series since 2008 has always been Hybrid built, meaning our Titanium X Ford Mondeo estate Business edition is able to offer lower emissions than any unleaded hybrid on the road (apart from the Range Rover Hybrid unleaded first series & the BMW unleaded Hybrid 3 to 5 series 2013 onwards). Our diesel Mondeo Estate offers ultra-low emissions, so low in fact that our emissions our lower than almost all electric cars sold to the UK, which have unleaded engines (Ford Official release every annum since 2007 at What Car forum)
The government directive for car manufacturers is clear, that air pollution in the United Kingdom is causing unhealthy amounts of toxins in our ingested breath, and that we must look as businesses to find cost effective ways of reducing the harmful toxins in the air surrounding towns and cities across the UK. Haulage companies have responded for many years, purchasing many Hybrid ultra-low emission diesel lorries, which do better mileage as a whole, making some of the diesel Hybrid ranges very attractive to the transport industry as a whole.
The Police force frequently choose diesel Hybrids as well, meaning that the public sector enforcement teams across the UK are also improving on public health as a whole. Beyond this our Ford Tourneo Trend has a hybrid diesel engine, transforming fuel into its carbon filters, meaning for a mini van in its class it releases the least amount of emissions in the entire Western world, making it one of the most ultra-low emitting vehicles on its engine size.
Many taxis companies across the South West of England and London also use Hybrid diesels, they generally have played a huge part in reducing toxins in the air across the UK as a whole. The Stobart industry haulage firm even uses enhanced filters on their lorries, meaning that barely any air pollution is carried away from their vehicles at all, Hybrid taxis have always been around and most diesel taxis released under Ford, BMW, Mercedes & VW have been hybrid for over ten years. The fact is that carbon filters define the difference between hybrid vehicles and non-hybrid vehicles, and in the last five years most diesel cars have become Hybrid, meaning that almost all taxis on the roads these days which are diesel are ultra-low emitting diesel vehicles.
BMW lead the way, with the top rated hybrid ratings, followed on by Ford and then VW who make all the engines for Skoda and Mercedes, while our vehicles are not BMW’s, they are Fords. In comparison to the series 3 M sport estate BMW our Ford Mondeo due to a smaller output, fares slightly better than BMW, The Ford Tourneo wins hands down against the X5 BMW, and while we would of loved to have driven BMW with you to all the airports, we are afraid our taxis are Fords.
