Fleet Leasing News – Sky Choose Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles
Over 1000 new Volkswagen Vehicles
The UK satellite, broadband and telephone services company have engaged in a deal that will add 930 Caddy Maxi Startlines and 190 Volkswagen Transporters to Sky’s existing fleet of 2,500 vehicles. Sky have more than 10 million TV and Broadband customers, and do thousands of home visits daily. Sky liveried Volkswagen vans are already a regular sight on British roads, and all of the new vehicles will be wrapped in Sky’s distinctive livery.
The vehicles chosen were smart choices for Sky. The Volkswagen Caddy Maxi has a very generous load area – 4.2m³ and a load length of 2.25m – and a high level of standard equipment, so the engineers will be comfortable as well as well equipped. Likewise, the Volkswagen Transporter is a solid, reliable workhorse with plenty of driver comforts and both vehicles offer good fuel economy.
David Landy***, Fleet Manager for Sky said: “We chose a fleet solution which aligned to the goals of our business. We wanted vehicles that would give us best MPG, lowest CO2 and easy accessibility to our customers. We also wanted vehicles known for longevity, reliability and good residual values. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is a great operational fit for our business.”
Alastair Hemmings, National Fleet Manager, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK, added: “The power of our residual values means we are highly competitive and able to offer outstanding value for money. Our dedicated fleet support team means we can also supply fleet customers with excellent options and a bespoke service.”
