Suzuki plans to dabble in fleet

Date: 28 March 2012   |   Author:

Suzuki is seeking to increase its virtually non-existent fleet profile in 2012 by appealing to user-choosers. "We're looking at getting into a little fleet business - 2000-3000 units of small user chooser type," a spokesman told BusinessCar.

The firm is hoping to introduce its all-wheel drive version of the Swift supermini, a model it trialled with a small number of fleets late last year, with the aim of selling to the likes of health authorities or district nurses, the kind of users that need to be able to travel in bad weather.

The Japanese brand has also sold a few examples of its Jimny small off-roader to health authorities as pool cars for essential use in bad weather.

The second-generation SX4 crossover launches next year, which Suzuki hopes will appeal to user choosers.

Bigger than the current model, the new SX4 arrives in summer 2013, and is the next all-new model due from the brand. The biggest news this year is that the Alto city car gets a revision that takes it from 103g/km to 99g/km, keeping it in the new minimum benefit-in-kind tax band.
