Renault Modus is named Best Small MPV in Green Car Awards
Renault Modus is the winner in the Environmental Transport Association's "Green Car Awards" for the third year in a row. The vehicle received the "Small MPV" award.
More than 5 000 cars have been examined by the Environmental Transport Association, which are currently on sale in Bratain. Further tests of their power, emissions, fuel efficiency and even the amount of noise they produce to create the definitive guide to buying the greenest vehicle.
Car Buyers' Guide was firstly published in 1995 by the ETA on request of its growing membership.
"With the price of petrol at record levels and greater understanding about the threat to the environment there has never been a more important time to make fuel efficiency a deciding factor when choosing a car.", said Andrew Davis, director at the Environmental Transport Association.
Renault Modus and Grand Modus are extremely economical. There are 18 eco² versions in the model range, which means that vehicles must emit less than 140g/km of CO2, or operate on E85 ethanol or on B30 biodiesel. The vehicles also are 95% recoverable at the end of their lifecycle - and include at least 5% recycled plastics.
The only model, which doesn't meets the requirements necessary for the Renault eco² label us 1.6 16V Automatic.
Boise reduction was factored into the design stage by digitizing and computing vibration and acoustics. Both vehicles – Modus and Grand Modus have cut noise levels by 50% to 71dBA, which is 3dBA lower than stipulated by European regulations.
"We are delighted to receive recognition for our environmental commitment especially from such a important organisation as the Environmental Transport Association. Modus and Grand Modus winning the Small MPV category in the Green Car Awards for the third year running is a great achievement.", comments Roland Bouchara, Managing Director, Renault UK.
