Hyundai has begun rolling out their new generation of i30 hatchback across Europe, and the car that got a VW board member interested also found favor with a major fleet customer in the UK. An order for 500 cars, combined between the i40 and the i30 has been placed by Enterprise PLC.
The i30 was specced as a 10 PS model, mainly because it emits 97g/km CO2 – 18g/km less than the outgoing model. The new i40 meanwhile delivers fuel economy from 65.7mpg on the combined UK cycle, which equates to emissions from just 113g/km for a D-segment car.

Martin Wilson, National Fleet Sales Manager at Hyundai Motor UK, said: “At Hyundai, we are continually growing and improving our entire fleet offering from the products that we sell to the support services we offer to customers. We are delighted that a Blue Chip company such as Enterprise PLC has chosen Hyundai and this further confirms that our products tick all the boxes for large fleet operators. We are looking forward to partnering with Enterprise PLC in helping them achieve greater fleet optimisation and efficiency.”

Philip Preston, Commercial Director Operations at Enterprise PLC, said: “We conducted an in-depth investigation into whole life costs of our fleet, looking at vehicle emissions, BiK tax benefits and vehicle performance. Hyundai came out on top and offered the best overall package for us and our fleet operation. As a Group we are constantly striving to reduce energy consumption and emissions from our fleet and Hyundai’s current fleet products help us do that.”

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
