Nissan has secured a contract with Calor Gas Limited to supply Primera LPGs to the company’s 200 strong fleet.
Nissan introduced the LPG Primera models in March to meet the demand from drivers and companies that want to take advantage of the cost and environmental benefits of gas power.
The conversion is available on the four, five door and estate versions of the 1.8 SE Primera and most importantly carries a full three-year/60,000 mile manufacturer warranty.
Ian Davis, Group Purchasing Manager, Calor Gas Limited, said: "The feedback from drivers has been very positive. They think the Primera is a good, comfortable, quiet drive. They are impressed with the different dashboard arrangement and find the rear-parking camera a very useful addition. The Primera has good build quality and the switch from petrol to gas is so smooth it is not even noticeable.
"Not only was Nissan very professional and flexible but they also considered our LPG requirements and developed a competitive solution to meet these which further illustrates their excellent customer service."
"Calor Gas is an example of the increasing number of fleets switching to LPG because of its financial and environmental benefits," said Dave Murfitt, Nissan’s Fleet Sales Director.
"The LPG combines all the benefits of the standard Primera with the addition of a full warrantied LPG conversion. We are confident that Calor and their drivers will be happy with their decision and hope to build our relationship with them in the future," he added.
The deal is part of Calor’s four badge restricted deal along with Volvo, Vauxhall and VW.Published 20 June 2003
