Commercial Vehicle Sales are finally on the Increase

Well, now, Mercedes Benz, one of the […]

Fiat Punto Van Released at CV Show

One of the most notable new vans that has been unveiled at the Commercial Vehicle Show this week in Birmingham has been the Fiat Punto Van. It replaces the Grand Punto Van and offers a load capacity of 1 cubic metre with a payload of 520kg. Not bad from such a small van then!
This is especially true when you consider the fact that the Corsavan, from Vauxhall, provides a slightly smaller load capacity of 0.92 cubic metres, however, it does indeed offer a higher maximum […]
