Fiat Professional wins four major accolades at Commercial Fleet awards

FIAT Professional, which is available at Central Motors, has been named ‘Van Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’ for the second consecutive year in the 2015 Commercial Fleet Awards, one of four major awards won by FIAT Professional at a gala event held at The International Centre in Telford recently.

  FIAT Professional was also named ‘Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’ for 2015, building on its ‘Highly Commended’ award in 2014, while the FIAT Fiorino scooped the ‘City Van of the Year’ title for the fourth year in a row.

  The recently-launched FIAT Doblò Cargo took the hotly-contested ‘Small Van of the Year’ award and the new FIAT Ducato was ‘Highly Commended’ in the ‘Large Panel Van of the Year’ category.

  Competing vehicles are compared across a number of vital fleet criteria, including payload and versatility; safety and technology; fuel efficiency and emissions; reliability and dealer back-up; comfort and performance and, of course, overall running costs.

  Commenting on FIAT Professional’s Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year Award, the judges noted: “FIAT Professional has a wide range of low emission vehicles, including viable petrol options on some models. It offers a holistic approach to the environment which encompasses its production techniques, van recyclability, stop-start technology and dashboard software which monitors driving behaviour.”

  The judges also noted enhancements to eco:Drive which enables a fleet to enter parameters such as load weight to analyse its impact on fuel efficiency and emissions.

  The significant haul of awards reflects the efforts being made by FIAT Professional to not only constantly improve its product line-up in a way which benefits its customers in the real world, it also recognises the ongoing strides the brand is making in terms of the range and quality of services it offers to every type of fleet customer in the Ireland.

  The annual Commercial Fleet Awards, now in its eighth year, recognise the accomplishments of vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators and suppliers and are highly coveted by the light commercial vehicle industry.
