Vauxhall rebrands fleet operation
19 February 2010
Vauxhall has announced it is changing the name of its fleet operation to Vauxhall Fleet from GM UK Fleet.
Following the restructure of GM's European operations, Vauxhall Fleet will focus solely on its business customers.
Saab is currently in discussion with Spyker Cars NV while Chevrolet is also taking a brand-specific fleet sales approach.
The Vauxhall Fleet team will continue to handle fleet activities relating to Saab, while GMUK will continue to honour its obligations to Saab servicing and warranty issues in the UK market.
Fleet sales director Maurice Howkins said: "European Car of the Year 2009, Insignia, finished number one in its segment last year and all-new Astra was the 2009 winner of the Golden Steering Wheel Award - one of the European automotive industry's most prestigious awards.
"Voted best vehicle in the compact class, the new Astra has had a spectacular start and continues to go from strength to strength.
Howkins concluded: "Add the unrivalled back-up and commitment of Vauxhall's comprehensive dealer network and we have a continuing recipe for future success."
