Pebley Beach launches green car site

Swindon motor dealer Pebley Beach has launched a green car sales brand to promote low-emission vehicles.

Go Green is a physical and online area for the sale of used cars that emit less than 100 grammes per kilometre of CO2.

As cleaner engines, hybrids, and electric vehicles filter into the used car market, the CO2 bar to Go Green entry will be lowered.

The launch of Go Green is one of a number of initiatives made by Pebley Beach to lower its carbon footprint, and help customers to reduce their own impact on the environment.

This summer, the firm ceased its use of screen wash in plastic bottles, opting instead for tablets that can be mixed on premises. The move will save 5,000 250ml plastic bottles a year.

The Hyundai and Suzuki dealership is also phasing out the use of printed brochures, pointing customers to its website instead. 

The glossy brochures are not easily recyclable and become obsolete whenever the price or specification of a vehicle changes. 

It is also discontinuing the use of single-use plastic seat protectors when cars come in for a service or MOT, relying on reusable covers instead. And it is scrapping chemical-based interior protection treatments to a water-based solution.

The company has also signed a deal with Haven Power to meet its energy needs with certified wind- and solar-generated electricity.

Managing director Dominic Threlfall said: "One hundred years ago, the industrialist Henry Ford told customers they could have the Model T Ford in any colour – so long as it was black. The motor industry has taken great strides towards more sustainable motoring, so today we're able to tell customers they can have a new or used car in any colour – so long as it's green."

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
