Kia's bids for fleet business with EcoDynamics

  • 110g/km Ceed on sale
  • Extended service intervals
  • Bid for more fleet business

Kia is hoping to win over more user choosers with the latest low-CO2 emission version of the Ceed.

Badged EcoDynamics, the special version of the 1.6-litre diesel Ceed features automatic stop-start technology and low rolling resistance tyres to reduce emissions compared with the standard diesel to 110g/km.

Service intervals for all diesel Ceeds have also been extended to 20,000 miles from 12,000 miles.

Theere is also a version of the 89bhp diesel Ceed without EcoDynamics with CO2 emissions of 113g/km which, like the lower CO2 version, attracts annual BIK tax at 13 per cent of the car's P11D value.

Other manual versions of the revised diesel Ceed also fall into the same company car tax bracket.

Andrew Sellars, head of fleet and remarketing at Kia, said: 'EcoDynamics is the biggest message we have ever had for the fleet market. And it's not just a big statement - it's a confident statement.'

He added that Kia's seven years/100,000 miles warranty on the Ceed was attracting more fleet business as many companies have moved to longer replacement cycles for their company cars of four and five years.
