The full package
Whichever decision you do make, it’s certainly reassuring to know that Fiat Professional offer a comprehensive national dealer network with 202 service centres, 66 of which are van specialists. Some even offer 24 hour, or out-of-hour servicing to help keep your fleet where you need it, on the road.
And if it’s low MPG you’re after, the entire Fiat Professional range will do a job for you. The Fiorino and Scudo in particular boast the best MPG† in their segments (64.2 and 39.2 respectively) which would certainly help keep your fleet fuel costs down. Fiat Professional even offer high performance and fuel efficient diesel engines which should keep your fleet away from the pump for even longer. Peace of mind also comes with Fiat Professional’s 120,000 mile, 3rd year dealer warranty*. Which means you can be sure any unexpected costs will be covered.
It’s a package that has certainly created a bit of a buzz about the industry. The people at Fleet Van Magazine were impressed enough to name Fiat Professional their ‘Most Improved Van Manufacturer of the Year, 2009.’ “Fiat Professional have made huge strides forward in terms of fleet support and back-up through its dealer network,” remarked Editor-in-Chief, Stephen Briers who also praised a “strong model line-up” and “excellent understanding of the needs of fleet operators.”
Fiat Professional isn’t just winning awards though, they’re winning plenty of new contracts too. Leading power company E.ON have increased their delivery of 100 Grande Punto Vans earlier this year by a further 77 vehicles. “The first vans have been really well received by E.ON,” says Colin Parnell, the regional corporate sales manager of Fiat Group Fleet. “They’ve already proved their fuel efficiency, environmental-friendliness and superb value in terms of ownership cost.”
More than 350 Fiat Professional vehicles are also being delivered to Scottish Southern Energy (SSE). 273 Fiorino and 79 Fiat Dobló Cargo vans will be arriving at SSE over the next three months helping them portray a fresh new identity along with a number of other objectives including lowering CO2 levels across the fleet. “The vehicles’ comfort, practicality and functionality made them an obvious choice for this contract,” said Grahame Neagus, head of Lex Autolease specialist commercial vehicle unit.
