Nissan GB has agreed a 10 vehicle contract with the Leasedrive Group, the UK’s largest independent privately owned vehicle management group.
The range of vehicles includes the Almera 2.2 dCi 136bhp SXE, the Primera 2.2 dCi SE, the Tino 2.2 dCi 136bhp SVE and the X-TRAIL 2.2 dCi SVE and will be driven by Leasedrive’s own staff.
The Leasedrive Group was recently sold to a new senior management team in a transaction valued at £45m. The new team is significantly reinvesting in the business and will be launching a new range of product and service innovations.
Staff at Leasedrive were keen to sample Nissan’s offering following recent positive comments. Nissan has worked with Leasedrive for several years under its old management structure and has also worked extensively with many members of the new team.
Roddy Graham, commercial director at Leasedrive observed: "Nissan has been chosen by our drivers because of the high level of vehicle specification and reliability combined with excellent aftersales service and competitive prices. We were particularly impressed with the new Primera and X-TRAIL and the positive feedback certainly influenced many of our drivers to switch to Nissan’s product."
David Murfitt, fleet sales director, Nissan said: "We are delighted to be working with Leasedrive, having built up a strong partnership with the organisation over a number of years. We wish them every success for the future."Published 21 September 2003
