"With 15 million Clubcard holders we are hoping to sell thousands of new cars in the coming months," explains Steve Archer, director of innovation and strategy for Inchcape.
...
The discounts available to Clubcard holders are greater than they could get in the showroom, says Archer.
"Tesco's Clubcard holders can now obtain incremental discounts on new cars above the level they would be able to get in showrooms," he said.
...
"Offers will vary week by week manufacturer by manufacturer and will depend on availability and the commercials relevant to that vehicle," said Archer.
However, the opening deals are no on run-out models - the Mondeo for example is one of the most popular retail models at present.
"We don't want to put on vehicles that are not popular," said Archer.

"Businesses are always on the lookout for ways to reduce operating costs without compromising service levels, and adding low-emission vehicles to a fleet represents a perfect way to achieve this," says Steve Archer, director of fleet services at Inchcape Fleet Solutions. "Prior to the market downturn, there was already clear evidence that customers were seeking more fuel-efficient vehicles, but external factors - natural disasters, war, civil unrest and oil prices - have acted as a catalyst, speeding up the process." Archer adds: "With the focus now firmly placed on whole-life cost and value for money, the industry has never been so attuned to the benefits of sub-100g/km vehicles."
...
But fleet numbers will grow: "Gradually Inchcape customers are realising just how many benefits are held in sub-100g/km vehicles: they are far cheaper to tax and fuel, resulting in a more attractive whole-life cost," says Archer. "It is not only running costs where carbon-efficient vehicles stand head and shoulders above their competition. They are also subject to considerable Government allowances (e.g. London congestion charge exemption) that are likely to become more commonplace in the future." Due to sub-100g/km models' low volumes, auction prices are currently strong. BCA's Henstock comments: "Used cars in this sector tend to be priced pretty keenly because of the scarcity factor, and this will often outweigh the obvious benefits accruing from reduced motoring costs. In reality the usual rules apply when it comes to valuation - make and model, desirability, condition, mileage and presentation are the critical issues." Archer adds: "Lower CO2 cars are performing relatively better than their higher CO2 equivalents in today's market, but the question is, will this still be the case in the future?

"Tesco's Clubcard holders can now obtain incremental discounts on new cars above the level they would be able to get in showrooms," said Steve Archer, director of innovation and strategy for Inchcape UK.
"The specific discounts vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model but at launch of the partnership they are up to £2,000 worth of tokens off the price of a Ford and £1,000 worth of tokens off the price of a Toyota or a Volkswagen."
The exact makes and models available through the exclusive Tesco-Inchcape partnership will vary, but at the launch of the available cars include: the Ford Ka, Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo; Toyota Aygo and Yaris; Volkswagen Polo, Golf and Golf Plus.
We have chosen to launch the partnership with more volume-orientated brands with attractive pricing and discounts at above showroom levels," said Archer.
