Fleet operators choose Renault

The scheme to improve service for fleet operators was one of the main reasons for the award, according to judges.

They said: “Renault’s efforts in listening to what fleet operators want and going the extra mile to deliver it has resulted in a transformation in how it is now perceived in the industry.

"It launched the Renault Business Promise, aiming to improve the service for fleet operators, as well as implementing ways of driving down their costs."

The award was presented at a ceremony in Grosvenor House, London last week, where Renault was selected ahead of both BMW and Vauxhall to take the title.

Renault’s car and LCV line up has been updated in the past 12 months to bring down running costs for fleet operators. This includes more efficient engines and lower CO2 emissions from its vehicles.

Renault’s fleet will be bolstered later in the year by the introduction of the Kangoo Van Z.E., the first of four electric vehicles set to be launched by the French marque.

It will be followed by the Renault Fluence saloon, the Zoe supermini and the quirky Twizy mobility solution as Renault aims to be become a leader in electric vehicles.

Collecting the award, Darren Payne, Renault UK’s Director of Fleet and Commercial Vehicle Operations, said, “We’re absolutely delighted to have won this Fleet News award. This latest win, added to the 11 industry awards we won last year, represents excellent independent validation of the tremendous efforts we’ve put into reaffirming our position as one of the top UK fleet market players.
