Skoda’s acclaimed compact SUV has won a prestigious International Green Apple Environment Award. The honour has been bestowed by The Green Organisation, an independent group dedicated to promoting the positive side of environmental behaviour. In existence since 1994, its annual awards highlight the benefits and profits that can come from environmental best practice.

This year is the first time it has chosen to honour new cars, and selected the Skoda Yeti E 2.0-litre TDI CR as the inaugural winner in the ‘Smaller SUV & 4x4’ category. The award was judged by members of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers, who were invited to nominate their favourite contender from a short list of four. The Yeti E 2.0-litre TDI CR’s outstanding fuel economy of 52.3mpg (combined) and CO2 emission of 140g/km, coupled with its practicality and versatility, stands out from the competition.

“It does everything you need a car to do and you get a lot of car for the money. This is actually that rare beast, an SUV with luggage space,” commented the judges. The awards presentation took place at a special event at the House of Commons in UK on 14 November. Skoda UK Product Marketing Manager, Chris Horrell was delighted with the prize. “The Yeti has been a game-changing car for Skoda and to win an award based around its environmental credentials is fantastic. That we’re the first winner of this honour makes it doubly special.”

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
