Irish Green Fleet Car 2018: Winner – Volkswagen e-Golf
Congratulations to the Volkswagen e-Golf for winning the Irish Green Fleet Car Award sponsored by ELVES at this year's Fleet Car Awards.
About the e-Golf
A facelifted Golf went on sale earlier this year, and with it came an updated version of its all-electric e-Golf. Now capable of offering a range of up to 300km compared to the previous 200km, it’s also more powerful and boasts all the renowned comforts and refinements of the regular Golf.

Over the last few months we have been growing our Network of ATFs, our latest members being West Cork 4x4, DC Autospares and Greener Metal Recycling. It’s great to have them on board.
Before receiving our approval ELVES was busy looking at what happens to a vehicle when it is recycled in Ireland. We undertook a trial involving the recycling of 201 scrap cars and small vans. The trial looked at the recycling process, focusing on the metal that is recycled from a end-of-life vehicle.
You can read the results of the trial here in our report.
Video may have killed the radio star, but the new ELVES radio advert may just bring it back to life. Playing on programmes like Moncreiffe and Off the Ball since the start of July, the adverts are part of the ELVES advertising campaign to improve awareness of the way to scrap a vehicle and promote the ATFs in our network.

Are you an importer of M1 or N1 new or used vehicles? If so, you have obligations under the ELV Regulations. Many importers are aware they that they have obligations to provide take back solutions for their vehicles when they become a waste and now is the time to act. ELVES can help you understand your obligations and provide a simple, practical, and cost effective way to meet them.
Yesterday, Thursday the 25th May, Minister Denis Naughten officially launched ELVES in Athlone.

New ELVES Signage was recently unveiled at the Mondello Park International Race Circuit in Kildare. The new signage is the first time the ELVES brand has been seen in a public place and is the start of a wide range of activities to promote ELVES and responsible End-of-Life Vehicle recycling. ELVES plans to be out and about in the summer at events like Mondello Park raising awareness about car recycling and the right way to do it.
ELVES is the collective compliance scheme for End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs). It has been set up by vehicle manufacturers to improve the recycling of scrap vehicles and help ensure Ireland meets the reuse, recycling, and recovery targets for ELVs.
