The move is part of an environmental drive by the company, which aims to reduce itas carbon footprint as far as possible. Other initiatives include solar panels to provide hot water to the business, a successful waste management programme and the establishment of an Eco Centre at its Chichester depot 3 years ago.

The cars will be driven by three of Covers long serving sales representatives, Lee Archdale, Andy Saigeman and Peter Elliott. They have some of the lowest CO2 emissions currently available with 99G/KM and a zero road tax bracket.
