Vauxhall is a key player in the UK fleet market, so it was no surprise to find its stand a hive of activity on Business Day at the British International Motor Show.
Vauxhall's Fleet Panel of some 16 key UK customers had earlier been presented with the carmaker's latest product lines aimed at this sector of the market and, according to fleet sales director Maurice Howkins, the reaction was positive.
He explained: “We got very good feedback on both our car and commercial vehicle ranges. We have the youngest commercial vehicle line-up in the industry, and with congestion charging soon to become a reality in some UK cities interest is rising in our LPG powered vehicles too, although diesel is still the dominant alternative to petrol engines.
“Ultimately, success in the fleet market is about meeting the ever-changing needs of our customers. Shows like this are a good way to meet them in large numbers and talk to them about their requirements, and for that reason I'm delighted with the traffic we've seen on the stand today.”Published 23 October 2002
