In its centenary year Vauxhall has been recognised in the influential Fleet News 2003 Awards for its “supreme long-term effort and commitment” in helping the fleet industry.
The journal, acknowledged as the bible of the multi-billion pound fleet business, named Vauxhall winner of the Platinum Award to acknowledge its role in motoring and fleet that has stretched over a century.
The citation recalls the company’s place on some of Britain’s biggest fleets as well as its commitment in the area of alternative fuels. “Since the launch of the country’s first dualfuel light van in 1997, Vauxhall has become a lynchpin in the drive to cleaner motoring with the widest dualfuel range in the industry,” it says.
Meanwhile the ultra-flexible seven-seater Zafira is named Best Mini MPV – for the fourth consecutive year.
Fleet News says: “This is the real ace in the hole for Vauxhall and the fresh thinking that created this market winner will soon start appearing elsewhere in the Vauxhall range.”Published 25 March 2003
