Firms start replacement of extended car contracts
16 August 2010
Companies are beginning to replace vehicles on extended company car contracts, as the recession eases, according to Volvo.
It says the trend is driving an increase in Volvo sales, with corporate growth of over 40% in the first half of 2010.
The carmaker said on the back of this strong start to the year and its new S60 and V60 models, it will expand its business centre network from 23 to 25 sites by the end of 2010.
Selwyn Cooper, Volvo Car UK's national corporate operations manager, said it is also keen to support its non-business centre dealers to handle local corporate business.
"We are talking to all our dealers about them developing sales people with business specialist skills in a bid to make the most of the launch of the all-new Volvo S60 and our range of Driv-e cars.
"We must build on our current corporate sales success as it is becoming an increasingly important part of Volvo's future growth ambition," he added.
