Just a few days after the official launch of production in Swindon, Honda has secured the first local fleet sale for the car from Co’dair Group, an Essex-based design and publicity agency, which has ordered 18 of the cars, replacing its entire fleet.
The new 1.6-liter turbo diesel was built from the ground up with the European market in mind. It produces 120 PS and 300 Nm of torque at 2,000rpm, emitting only 94 grams per kilometer of CO2, ideal for fleet use.
John Dedross, Managing Director of The Co’dair Group, commented: “Part of our decision-making process was the need to engage with a supplier which not only understands how its vehicles fit into our business now, but also how we plan for the future.”
He added; “We have always demanded a lot from our vehicles and suppliers. Honda has the strength and depth to meet our requirements. By selecting the 1.6-litre diesel engine we have reduced our drivers’ Benefit In Kind taxation, fuel costs and service and maintenance budget.”
