Fiat Professional receives multiple 'Commercial Fleet Awards 2015' in the UK
The brand was named 'Van Fleet Manufacturer of the Year' for the second year running and 'Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year'. Fiorino and Doblò Cargo triumphed in their respective categories.
Fiat Professional was named 'Van Fleet Manufacturer of the Year' for the second year running at the eighth edition of the prestigious yearly 'Commercial Fleet Awards'. These awards are held in high regard in the light commercial vehicle industry because the panel judges are members of the Fleet News/Commercial Fleet editorial team and independent international experts.
The brand was also named 'Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year' and Fiat Fiorino was awarded 'City Van of the Year' for the fourth time during the gala held at the International Centre in Telford. The 'Small Van of the Year' award went to Doblò Cargo and Ducato received a commendation in the 'Large Panel Van of the Year' category.
The features of the vehicles in contention were compared by taking a number of very important parameters for fleet management into consideration: load capacity, versatility, safety, technology, efficiency, resellability, reliability, comfort, performance and overall running costs. For the panel, in addition to these features, Fiat Professional was also the best in the UK for eco-friendliness for the specifically developed software (eco:Drive Professional and eco:Drive), the new low-emission EcoJet engines, the remarkable fuel efficiency of the entire range, the longer life and the recyclability of each new product.
The number and importance of the received awards reflects Fiat Professional's efforts to improve products and secure benefits for customers and is a recognition of the continuous progress, variety and quality of the services offered by the brand in the UK.
