Victory for BMW UK at Fleet News Honours.
BMW has defended its title of Fleet Manufacturer of the Year, for the second year in a row while the BMW 7 Series won Best Luxury Car award and BMW X1 was awarded the Best Premium Crossover at the 2017 Fleet News Honours.
Fleet World judges, said: “BMW has an intimate understanding of fleet needs that’s unmatched in the market. So not only do drivers get a broad range of desirable, low-CO2, high-tech vehicles to choose from, but the support for operators is first rate. Standard-fit connectivity means fleets and leasing companies can now use on-board data to proactively book workshop time, and the aftersales charter guarantees the most convenient turnaround too. It’s an offering that continues to set the benchmark.”
