Surveyor takes on 15 BMW 330es in new fleet deal

Date: 04 August 2016   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

Shepherd Charted Surveyors has taken on 15 BMW 330e plug-in hybrid saloons in order to reduce its carbon footprint.

According to the firm, its fleet of 140 cars covers three million miles each year, and it is expecting "substantial" tax and fuel savings.

"Despite driving being a necessary and substantial feature of the surveyors' day to day business activity, as a company Shepherd has been keen to ensure it acknowledges its environmental obligations and travels in the most environmentally-friendly way possible," said George Brewster, senior partner at Shepherd.

The BMW 330e has a CO2 figure of 45g/km which puts it in the 5% benefit-in-kind bracket and an official fuel figure of 148mpg yet has a 0-60mph time of 6.1 seconds.

These stats, coupled to a strong residual value and excellent driving experience, mean the car scored 10/10 in its BusinessCar test drive, and has led to high demand from user-choosers.
