The deal largely consists of the new Insignia, powered by the 2.0CDTi 140PS engine that uses Vauxhall’s award-winning ecoFLEX technology. The Insignias, which have been specified in Design trim, achieve an impressive combined fuel consumption of 76.3mpg and have CO2 emissions of just 98g/km, with attractive whole-life costs and low benefit-in-kind taxation for company car drivers.
Alongside the Insignias, the rest of the fleet will be made up of a mixture of Corsas powered by the 1.3CDTi 95PS ecoFLEX engine, the Astra Hatch and the British-built Astra Sports Tourer – giving BT Fleet’s drivers a wide choice of vehicles. The Astra variants will be powered by either the 1.3CDTi 95PS engine with a combined fuel consumption of 68.9mpg, or the 1.7CDTi 110PS engine with a combined fuel consumption of an equally competitive 62.8mpg.
“We are dependent on our vehicles in order to offer the best possible service to our customers, so having a reliable fleet is vital. Having ordered 560 vehicles from Vauxhall between 2011 and 2012, we are familiar with the reliability and impressive build-quality,” said Duncan Webb, Commercial Director, BT.
“It is great to be selected again for a fleet order of this volume and importance. The addition of the new 98g/km Insignia will lower BT’s overall fleet CO2 average as well as directly benefitting the finances of the end-user,” said James Taylor, Fleet Sales Director, Vauxhall.
