Vauxhall triple award winner at Van Fleet World Honours
The UK-built Vivaro proved itself top of its field in the Best Medium Van category for the second year in succession, while Combo was once again awarded top honours in the Best Light Van category for an astonishing fourth year in a row.
John Kendall, Editor of Van Fleet World commented; “Our choice of Vauxhall as Van Manufacturer of the Year is based upon the wide and comprehensive range of vehicles offered by the company many of which are being built here in the UK. Their light CV coverage is complemented with Core and Recognised conversions, which makes its leading position in the market very well deserved."
John continued: “The Best Light Van Award went to Combo once again in recognition of its versatility and cost effectiveness as an option for fleets needing flexible crew transport or load carrying capability. Finally the Vivaro wins Best Medium Van 2008 for its broad range of body styles, plentiful storage space, excellent payload capacity and good driving characteristics.”
Steve Bryant, Brand Manager at Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles, said: “We’re very proud to have achieved so much at the awards. It’s a great feeling to know that your products and services are well thought of in the industry and appreciated by your customers.”
The Fleet World Awards are designed to acknowledge those car and van fleet-related companies that have contributed that extra something to the industry. The judging panel consists of representatives from the leasing industry, price guides, fleet management professionals and Fleet World's editorial team.
Vauxhall’s Cars were also honoured at the Fleet World Awards, with the all new Insignia winning the highly coveted Editor’s Choice Award.
