A long-standing player in the fleet market, the Toyota Avensis has undergone a refresh for 2016. GreenFleet finds increased efficiency, comfort, refinement, space, and technology are among the key attractions for fleet buyers.

PHEV Diary: Month six - Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

GreenFleet’s sixth month with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV sees it once again beat all previous monthly mileage totals, and as it reaches its penultimate report, other owners share their experiences with the big plug-in hybrid SUV.

First Drive: Citroën Dispatch

The 2016 Citroën Dispatch is the latest in a long line of light commercial luminaries from the French company, which includes the 1939 TUB (Transport Utilitaire série B) and the now‑fashionable Type H of 1947.

First Drive: 2016 Fiat Professional Fullback 2.4 LX

The one-tonne pick-up sector is growing in the UK, and the new Fiat Professional Fullback is the latest entrant. Armed with a competitive price and payload, in addition to well-proven Japanese mechanicals, has the Italian commercial vehicle manufacturer done enough to make it succeed among other more-established rivals? 

With over 1,900 changes, Richard Gooding finds the new Fiat 500 offers more equipment, more technology, as well as more efficient fun from its revised range of engines.

The DS 5 spearheaded the 2015 arrival of the standalone DS brand, and offers a different take on the executive car. GreenFleet also finds low emissions and touches of sumptuous aviation style.

Electric motorcycles could be the perfect answer for urban delivery fleets wanting to cut both emissions and costs. Karl O’Sullivan takes a ride on the Vmoto E-Max 120LD+.

PHEV Diary: Month five - Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The highest monhtly mileage tally, and the most efficient economy figure are two major highlights of the fifth month with our Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. A security vulnerability is the only downside.

The latest versions of the Citroën and Peugeot medium-sized light commercial vehicles were launched at the 2016 Commercial Vehicle Show. Richard Gooding drives the new pair in France and finds out how the car-derived underpinnings and technologies revitalise the French D-segment LCVs.

The Outlander PHEV’s eco-conscience isn’t just for the city: this month Richard Gooding finds out that the countryside is another (almost) ideal environment for the SUV’s low emission side nature.
