Vauxhall Fleet has won the important Editor’s Award in the 2004 Fleet World Honours. The award was judged by a panel of experts representing the leasing industry, fleet managers, residual value guides and Fleet World ’s editorial team.
The award was one of four made in this year’s honours, spearheaded by the naming of the new Astra as the year’s Best New Car.
Of the Editor’s Award, Fleet World editor Ross Durkin commented: ‘Last year saw Vauxhall top the fleet sales charts for the first time and that’s an achievement that I felt could not go unacknowledged.
"The fleet industry remains a vitally important area for virtually all motor manufacturers and Vauxhall’s success in this area is built upon a sound product proposition, backed up by a highly capable fleet sales team.
‘With new product like Vectra Estate and the new Astra, Vauxhall’s position is becoming stronger all the time and I have no doubt that next January the team will be celebrating another exceptional fleet sales performance.’
Meanwhile Vauxhall commercial vehicles have collected two further awards from sister magazine Commercial Fleet World.
The Best Engine award went to 1.3 CDTi common rail diesel engine which is fitted in Corsavan and the Luton-built Vivaro was named Best Medium Van.Published 12 May 2004
