VW starts British Gas delivery
07 September 2010
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has begun delivery of 2000 new vans to British Gas.
The vans include a mixture of Volkswagen Caddy and Caddy Maxi vans, plus a Crafter dropside, and the trial of a Transporter Shuttle minibus. They form part of the British Gas vehicle exchange programme to update its fleet of over 10,000 vehicles.
The vans are fitted with speed limiters and racking to help control any load if the vehicle has to brake heavily. In addition, the new livery includes high visibility chevrons on the rear doors.
Colin Marriott, general manager for British Gas fleet, said: "Our ongoing strategic relationship with Volkswagen is very important to our business. It enables us to provide our engineers with safe and reliable vehicles, which meet highest quality standards and offer excellent value in terms of whole-life costs."
