The Avis Eco Collection is a new group of diesel vehicles with emissions lower than 120g/km.
The VW Golf 1.6 TDI 90ps is apparently the first model to join the fleet. The car’s combined miles per gallon (MPG) is 62.8 and its CO2 emissions are sub 120, at 118g/km.
Avis are offsetting the emissions for every Avis Eco car rental for the months of December 2009 and January 2010 and matching pound-for-pound the total amount offset by all UK customers across the entire fleet during the period.
