The BVRLA Fleet Sustainability Credentials show that the rental and leasing sectors are already leading the transition to cleaner transport, with 100% of the car rental fleet and 96% of leased cars being Clean Air Zone (CAZ) compliant. These compliance figures are well ahead of the average for all UK cars, where only 62% meet CAZ emission requirements.
The results are even starker for the commercial vehicle sector - which is the largest target for most local authority CAZs. Only 21% of the UK van fleet is currently CAZ-compliant, compared to over two-thirds (67%) of all leased vans and 88% of the rental van fleet.
Only 44% of the total UK HGV fleet is currently Euro VI, but this rises to more than 80% for rented and leased trucks.
