Fiat strikes red-hot fleet deal with Currys PC World
The £600,000 deal, with vans supplied and managed by VMS Fleet Management Ltd, puts Fiat Professional’s popular 1.6-litre MultiJet diesel commercial vehicle into the heart of Currys PC World’s van fleet. As part of a new service engineer project, the vans will be used for home service visits, their 1000kg payload and 4.2 cubic metre volume allowing easy transportation of large, heavy items such as washing machines and fridge freezers.
‘The Doblo Cargo Maxi was chosen for its excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions, as well as the 1000kg payload,” says Martin James, managing director, VMS Fleet Management Ltd. ‘It was also useful that the vehicles came straight from the factory in black, as this was the colour Currys PC World requested,’ he added.
Loaded with equipment, the Doblo Cargo Maxi has ABS anti-lock brakes, electric windows, power steering and central locking as standard, while options include air conditioning, electric door mirrors and headlamp washers.
‘We are delighted once again that a leading household name has chosen the Fiat Doblo for its fleet,’ says Sebastiano Fedrigo, director, Fiat Professional. ‘A combination of its size, versatility and value for money makes the Doblo Cargo Maxi an excellent choice for applications such as these,’ he added.
The Doblo Cargo range starts at £12,365 (basic price) for the Cargo 1.4 16v, rising to £17,467 (basic price) for the Cargo Maxi SX 1.6 MultiJet 16v Diesel 105 Tecnico.
