Vauxhall continues supply to BT with massive fleet order

Date: Friday, May 29, 2015   |  

Vauxhall has delivered 2500 Vivaros and 330 Corsavans to  British Telecoms (BT) in a continuation of its deal with the multinational telecommunications company.

The manufacturer holds preferred supplier status with BT Fleet and has provided over 20,000 vehicles for the company in the last decade.

BT engineers were consulted during the tender process and helped to chose the Vivaro L1H1 2900 90hp model.

As part of their engagement in the fleet deal, the BT engineers were able to visit Vauxhall's Luton plant to see the Vivaro being made, and the plant also organised for the group to see the 500th van from their order roll off the production line.

"It's important that our engineers are driving the right van for them," said Mike Langford, BT Fleet senior customer relationship manager.

"Our vehicles need to be future-proof, reliable and user friendly, making the engineers who drive them the obvious people to help specify the vans."

The Vivaro vans were racked out by conversion specialist Bott.
BT Fleet ran the previous Vivaro on its fleet and Langford said the low running costs of the Vivaro helped Vauxhall win an extension to the contract.
