Nissan Qashqai 1.6-litre selected for fleet eco credentials
The company has taken delivery of 21 models based on key purchase decisions including its low CO2, Stop/Start technology and strong fuel economy, which help the company follow its stringent environmental policies.
Yearsley Group ran a vehicle trial selection that involved the VW Passat, Toyota Prius, Skoda Superb and Qashqai. The Nissan came out on top thanks to its strong residual values, its suitability as a company vehicle and its fuel economy of 62.8mpg.
Jonathan Baker, Yearsley Group’s commercial director, said: ‘After taking initial deliveries of the Qashqais, the feedback from our drivers has been extremely positive and we’re delighted with how the low CO2 output helps support our environmental policy. The support from Nissan throughout the deal has been excellent and we look forward to building on this relationship.’
Jon Pollock, Nissan’s corporate sales director said: ‘Yearsley Group is an environmentally conscious company and we’re proud the Qashqai was able to offer their car fleet a low CO2 solution. The strong fuel economy will also help reduce Yearsley Group’s fleet running costs and their sales team can look forward to using a vehicle that will provide them years of strong and reliable service.’
Over the course of their three-year service the Qashqais will cover approximately 75,000 miles with servicing managed by Nissan main dealers.
