BVRLA: VW emissions scandal will affect rental sector

Date: 22 September 2015   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

The BVRLA has claimed that the rental sector will be affected by the ongoing Volkswagen emissions scandal.

According to the rental body's chief executive, Gerry Keaney, its members and customers are concerned about the implications for the scandal hitting the UK.

"In recent years, the UK's tax regime has encouraged fleets to choose vehicles based on official emissions figures, and while our emissions test is a fundamentally different system to the US, these revelations reinforce the need for a more accurate testing regime," Keaney said.
"These investigations have only just begun, so we're watching closely to see if the scope widens further to include other manufacturers and vehicles," he added.
