Vauxhall to see strong true fleet sales in 2014 following 50% rise in Insignia take-up
Launched last June, the model’s true fleet sales rose over 50% in the second half of 2013 over the first half of 2013.
The new model brings refreshed design, new powertrains including a 2.0 CDTi diesel unit with emissions of just 98g/km and an advanced, infotainment system with internet connectivity.
Commenting on the model’s strong take-up by end-user fleet drivers, James Taylor, Vauxhall’s fleet sales director said: ‘It is fantastic to see this growth.
‘We took some very bold decisions when launching this car and how we’ve approached tackling the challenges of reducing whole life costs, SMR costs and National Insurance Contributions, plus minimising the benefit-in-kind taxation for company car drivers.
‘It wasn’t easy to do, but it was the right strategy and I’m encouraged by the sales results we’ve achieved and the very positive feedback from our customers and the new business we have brought in.
‘With the new whisper quiet 1.6-litre diesel now launched in Astra, and much-improved availability of Mokka, we expect another strong year for Vauxhall in true fleet.’
