Chevrolet UK has delivered its first big fleet order for its new Matiz city car to Europcar which has taken 200 of the new models for daily rental use.
The Europcar fleet included 500 of the previous Matiz model in 2004 and the company has already taken delivery of 400 of the existing model in 2005. The cars will be focused on Europcar corporate centres, particularly those sited at airports.
Paul Phillips, Manager of Fleet and Used Car Sales for Chevrolet UK said: "Europcar is a key customer for Chevrolet and we are pleased that, in their requirements for a small city car, they see Matiz as a practical and efficient solution for their customers."
Michael McInerney, fleet director at Europcar says: "We are delighted to be able to offer our customers the latest model from Chevrolet. The new Matiz provides a high specification including 5-door easy access which is perfect for city use."
The first shipment was delivered to Europcar’s Heathrow Airport operation appropriately on Axial’s newest transporter.
The new Chevrolet Matiz is the company’s latest model, offering high levels of specification and exceptional value for money. The range starts at £6,095 with the 3-cylinder 0.8 litre S model, the mid range 4-cylinder 1.0 litre SE is priced at £6,595 and the top of the range 1.0 litre SX is £7,595. Air-conditioning is available on the mid range SE model.Published 25 August 2005
