Low Emission Vehicles

Murcotts is an active member and adviser to the Low Emission Vehicle Automotive Partnership, an initiative of the RACV, EPA Victoria and Future Climate Australia.

In 2008 and 2009 Murcotts staged LEV Forum and Drive Days at Sandown Racetrack for the Low Emission Vehicle Automotive Partnership. Vehicle manufacturers that had eligble LEVs provided particpants with the opportunity to experience the efficiency of those vehicles. An expert panel provided input to the forum attended by Fleet Managers, interested motoring enthusiasts and the media.

In 2010 GreenZone was held in Melbourne CBD.

Vehicles including hybrids, electric, diesel and petrol technologies from Audi, BMW, Citroen, Ford, Hyundai, MINI, Mitsubishi, Toyota and Volvo were tested on the GreenZone Drive route, departing from outside the Fox Classic Car Collection in Collins Street, and following a route through Docklands.
