Tower Park-based motor dealership Breeze Volkswagen has completed a deal to supply more than 20 vehicles to one of the UK’s fastest growing award winning providers of business telecommunications systems, 4Com PLC.
The fleet of 23 Volkswagen Golf Estates will be used by the 4Com engineers while they visit clients across theUKto perform telecoms installations, upgrades and on-site maintenance.
Following a review into operating costs and its company car policy, 4Com re-evaluated its existing fleet and searched the market for a new vehicle that met all the product criteria they were looking for, including large boot space to accommodate tools, as well as a vehicle that was suitable for engineers to use as their own company car during weekends and evenings with their families.
It is 20 years since the original Volkswagen Golf Estate went on sale and this all-new model is bigger and better than ever. The boot space has been expanded by up to 100 litres, from the 505 litres of its predecessor to 605 litres, and it is also up to 105kg lighter. The Volkswagen Golf Estates supplied are 2.0 TDi GT models and include 85.6mpg BlueMotion technology, which help drivers to save money on fuel and cut down on CO2 emissions.
The cars include Bluetooth, DAB digital radio with 5.8-inch colour touchscreen, iPod connector, seven airbags, XDS electronic differential and an automatic post-collision braking system. These models also gain ADC automatic distance control with Front Assist and City Emergency Braking, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear map-reading lights, automatic lights and wipers, a Driver Alert System, driver profile selection, and a Pre-Crash preventive occupant protection system.
Adam Sullivan of 4Com: “We wanted to acquire vehicles which were reliable, of high quality, large enough to carry equipment and with competitive whole-life costs. But they also needed to be desirable to our drivers so they enjoy using them during their spare time. The new Volkswagen Golf Estate is the perfect company car, combining excellent running costs, emissions, practicality and technology. Breeze Volkswagen is providing an excellent service and this is certainly contributing to an extremely smooth transition from the current vans.”
Neil Carlton, Corporate Department Business Development Manager at Breeze Volkswagen, adds: “Breeze Volkswagen is delighted the new Volkswagen Golf Estate has been selected by 4Com as its preferred fleet vehicle for its team of engineers to replace their vans. This new car is the most spacious and fuel-efficient Volkswagen Golf Estate ever and fleet buyers and drivers have been impressed by the quality, safety and value of the car as well as the low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
“At Breeze Volkswagen we deliver a highly personal approach to business which ultimately results in the provision of outstanding levels of customer care, and as a result we look forward to developing the relationship with 4Com and assisting the firm with its Volkswagen vehicle servicing requirements.”
