Plug-in cars win three out seven honours at 2016 ACFO Awards
Fleet acceptance of Tesla as a supplier of company cars was recognised as the company won ACFO awards for the first time.
Tesla won the environmental initiative of the year award and shared the green vehicle of the year award for its executive Model S with the plug-in BMW i3, which made it a hat-trick of ACFO title successes as the car retained the trophy won for the past two years.
Further emphasising the emergence of ‘green’ power in fleet operations in the 2016 ACFO Awards is that BMW was highly commended in the environmental initiative of the year and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class plug-in hybrid electric vehicle was similarly recognised in the fleet car of the year category.
However, there was not change everywhere as the Jaguar XE, which entered UK showrooms 17 months ago, retained the fleet car of the year title won last year. The BMW 3 Series was also highly commended in the category.
