Renault has won yet another trophy to add to its already long list of plaudits, this time for its newly-revised van range, and they are delighted at winning the award for Most Improved Van Manufacturer of the Year at the Fleet Van Awards.
Europe’s number one LCV marque was also praised for the New Master in the Large Panel Van of the Year category and they also made the shortlist in category of Small Van of the Year for the Kangoo Van.
Renault is getting very serious about its vans in the United Kingdom. They now have a good range of vans which are very competitive, particularly the New Master which came very close to winning the category it was in, and a network of dealers that are waking up to the needs of fleets. They hope in the future that many more firms will be taking out commercial vehicle insurance on Renault vans when they see what they have to offer. Renault’s range of van-specific initiatives (Renault Pro+ and iCare) has raised the standards as well as giving van fleets a reason to consider Renault as a supplier.
Speaking after the award was won, Darren Payne, Renault UK’s Director, Fleet and Commercial Vehicle Operations, said, “We’re honoured to have received the award for ‘most improved van manufacturer’ and are thrilled that the judges have recognised the work that has gone into revising our entire LCV offering in less than two years. With the unique Kangoo Van range of three distinct models in the compact category, plus the revised Traffic Phase 3 and recently launched New Master in both front- and rear-wheel-drive, we truly believe we offer the ideal range for business customers, large or small. Aside from just upgrading our products, we’ve also worked extremely hard on delivering unique initiatives to ensure that the quality of our customer care matches that of our vans.”
