Nurse Plus takes care of driver needs with SEAT Mii
The agency specialises in providing healthcare professionals on a temporary or short-notice basis to hospitals, care homes and the local community, and the cars will be used by the branch network and field staff for client visits up and down the country.
The fleet comprises five-door models, each in S specification, powered by a three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine that delivers 59bhp with 70lb.ft of torque and a fuel economy figure of 62.8mpg combined.
Fuel economy was a key factor in Nurse Plus’s decision to choose Mii, along with compactness, interior space and manoeuvrability.
Heath Blake, managing director at Nurse Plus, said: ‘We were massively impressed by the all-round qualities of the Mii, and the SEAT brand in general, and I’m sure our branch network will enjoy the Mii becoming an essential part of their everyday life. The car has rock-solid build quality and offers great everyday fuel economy.’
In line with the sporty nature of SEAT’s city car, Nurse Plus completed the handover at Thruxton race circuit in Hampshire, with the fleet doing a celebratory lap.
SEAT UK head of fleet and business sales Steve Robertson commented: ‘The deal is yet more evidence that SEAT is increasing its appeal in the fleet market, with a range of cars that’s outstanding from top to bottom, combining the very best German engineering with unique Spanish design flair and, of course, very low running costs.
‘It’s no wonder that SEAT has increased its fleet sales by 50% in 2013, compared to this time in 2012,’ he added.
The fleet sale was handled by Snows SEAT – the largest dealer group in the UK for the brand – in partnership with contract hire and fleet management expert Wessex Fleet Solutions.
