Renault - Most Improved Van Manufacturer of the Year

12th October 2010 Print

Renault has added another trophy win to the list of plaudits for its newly-revised van range, by scooping the award for ‘Most Improved Van Manufacturer of the Year’ at the Fleet Van Awards 2010.

Europe’s number one LCV marque was also Highly Commended for New Master in the Large Panel Van of the Year category and shortlisted in the Small Van of the Year category for the Kangoo Van and its recently introduced longer wheelbase sibling, Maxi.

Commenting on the rationale behind Renault’s Most Improved Van Manufacturer win, the judges added, “Renault is getting serious about its van business in the UK. It now has a range of vehicles that are very competitive, particularly the New Master which came close to winning its category, and a dealer network that is waking up to the needs of fleets. Its range of van-specific initiatives, such as Renault Pro+ and iCare, is raising standards and giving van fleets a reason to consider Renault as a partner.”

Speaking after the award was collected by Louise O’Sullivan, Manager, Fleet Marketing at the ceremony in London, Darren Payne, Renault UK’s Director, Fleet and Commercial Vehicle Operations, said, “We’re honoured to have received the award for ‘most improved van manufacturer’ and are thrilled that the judges have recognised the work that has gone into revising our entire LCV offering in less than two years. With the unique Kangoo Van range of three distinct models in the compact category, plus the revised Trafic Phase 3 and recently launched New Master in both front- and rear-wheel-drive, we truly believe we offer the ideal range for business customers, large or small.

“Aside from just upgrading our products, we’ve also worked extremely hard on delivering unique initiatives to ensure that the quality of our customer care matches that of our vans. Our Renault Pro+ centre programme continues to go from strength to strength across the country, the innovative Renault iCare fully-managed SMR package is being very well received, and the Renault Business Promise ensures that our business customers now receive the highest standards of service.”
