The number of new environmentally friendlier cars which are currently being sold is rapidly increasing, according to top UK car dealership group, Lookers.

The company are extremely dedicated to providing green cars with lowered CO2 emissions that help to improve our environment. However, they also recognise that they can be cost effective for customers too, as many green cars are recognised as being economical as well.

Figures show that CO2 figures were down 4.7% in the first half of 2010 to 145.2g/km, compared with the same period in 2009 and registrations of alternatively fuelled new cars doubled during this time.

Commenting on the increase in demand for greener vehicles, Lookers Managing Director, Andy Bruce, said: 'We have noticed a significant rise in demand for cars with lower CO2 emissions recently, which suggests both that the rise in fuel prices are forcing people to search for alternatively fuelled cars but also that people are becoming more environmentally conscious. Lookers are committed to meeting this demand with suitably green cars which can help reduce emissions.'

Recent advances in technology and also concerns for the environment have meant that car manufacturers have been more creative with their ideas for new cars. Electric cars, hybrids and those run on biofuels give us an indication of the future of motoring.

Although not all the new eco-friendlier cars are run on alternative fuels and so therefore using a fuel other than petrol or diesel, some are designed to make more efficient use of these so they are still helping the environment. However, these solutions also help to reduce the amount the car owner spends on fuel.

The average CO2 figure has fallen each month of 2010 so far, however the aftermath of the Scrappage Incentive Scheme is expected to slow down this success. But if manufacturers continue to focus their efforts on making good use of better technologies and resources, then hopefully the growth Lookers have seen in new cars with improved greener technology can carry on.

Lookers are one of the biggest car dealerships in the UK offering a range of deals on new cars and used cars too. The Group's franchised businesses operate over 120 motor retail outlets across 32 marquees at 73 locations across the UK.
