BSM to switch fleet to Peugeot
Replacing the previous Vauxhall Corsas, the first BSM Peugeot tuition cars are expected on the road in June, with instructors able to choose the latest Peugeot 208 as standard or upgrade to the larger 308 model, which was voted 2014 Car of the Year. Both models are available with either manual or automatic gearboxes and with petrol or diesel fuel choices as well as the full BSM livery and dual controls as standard.
BSM said the change is one of the latest pieces of activity in its new strategy, which is underlined with a vision of ‘Better, Safer Motorists’.
Mark Peacock, head of BSM, said: “We ran an in-depth tender process and consulted with our instructors before deciding to switch our fleet supplier to Peugeot.
“Peugeot have put together a package to supply our instructors with a modern range of cars that have class-leading mpg figures, a high level of specification and more standard features.
“We want to ensure that BSM delivers a first class experience to both its learners and instructors and we believe that our new agreement with Peugeot helps us reach this goal.”
Scott Westerby, head of fleet operations for Peugeot, said: “Learning to drive is a key moment in the journey of the motorist and Peugeot has long produced a wide choice of vehicles extremely well suited to the start of this experience. Our latest range is very modern and brings features that enhance the safety and ease of driving.”
