Think of a company car and what do you dream of? A commanding façade, plush interior, executive-level technology? But once the reality of company car tax hits, many business owners and employees find themselves driving something very different to the executive vehicle of their dreams.
Fear not, there is a solution and it is winning awards left, right and centre! Awarded the 2015 SME Company Car of the Year Award for Best Company Car for Tax, the Mercedes-Benz C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid, has been praised by the judges for its low running costs and tax-efficiency.
Thanks to the company car tax benefits of ‘driving greener’, luxury vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid now offer you executive level motoring without the high price tag. But going eco doesn’t mean you have to compromise, offering lively performance and great fun at the wheel, and up to 20 percent lower fuel consumption than its predecessors.
In announcing the C-Class Award, Ralph Morton, Editorial Director at Business Car Manager stated “If the look and the way the car drives doesn’t tempt you, then the low running cost of our Best SME Company Car for Tax will. The C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid can return up to 78.4 mpg and has CO2 emissions of 94 g/km, putting the car in the 11 per cent company car tax band. For company car drivers, this really is a fantastically tax-efficient way to drive an executive car.”
This hyped up Hybrid offers all the traits of a modern vehicle and more including a silent start with the electric motor moving the vehicle for the first few metres, electric driving at speeds of up to 35 km/h for extra efficiency in stop-and-go traffic, boost effects to support the combustion engine with its powerful electronic torque for faster overtaking, tangible agility and consequently more safety and fun at the wheel.
