Volvo. Ready for business. Come and see Volvo’s V40 D4 at Fleet News Congress. It’s a car that ticks all the boxes for fleet operators and their employees.
Company car drivers have straightforward desires: they want to get from A to B as stylishly and comfortably as possible, without paying too much Benefit in Kind (BiK) income tax.
Alongside this, their employers are concerned to keep costs to a minimum, while everyone wants the workforce to be as safe as possible on the move.
Volvo understands these priorities, and makes cars that meet the requirements of employers and employees alike.
Take the eye-catching V40 D4 as a case in point. Its CO2 emissions are just 99g/km, putting it into the lowest possible road tax band. Not only does that make it cost-effective for fleet operators to buy and run, it also keeps BiK charges to a manageable £63.23 a month for basic-rate taxpayers, and £126.45 a month for those in the 40% band.
Added to that, the V40 D4’s fuel consumption is 74.3mpg on the combined cycle, meaning hefty fuel bills are a thing of the past. And the car’s array of world-leading safety features, leading to the highest Euro NCAP score of any car ever tested, brings welcome peace of mind, as well as reduced insurance costs.
The V40 D4 offers a premium ownership experience, with Volvo’s signature Scandinavian style in evidence both externally and in the luxurious interior.
Find out for yourself, by visiting Volvo at Fleet News Congress. You can get hands-on with the V40 D4 and other Volvo models, and see demonstrations of collision-prevention equipment like City Safety and Blindspot Information Service (BLIS).
