Mercedes-Benz has won the prestigious ‘Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’ title at this year’s Business Car awards. Plus, the A 250 e has been named ‘Best Plug-In Hybrid Car’, while GLB achieved ‘Best Large SUV’.
Simon Harris, editor, Business Car, commented: “Offering fleets early access to a wide range of RDE2-compliant diesels, as well as getting a number of new plug-in hybrid variants on the market in a crucial year, Mercedes-Benz has backed this up with a restructured Fleet team set up to deliver increased true fleet sales. It's a worthy winner in 2020.”
Tom Brennan, Head of Fleet, Mercedes-Benz Cars UK added: “This award from Business Car is a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, following the re-structure of our operations. Over the past year we have introduced a range of fleet-specific services aimed at better supporting our customers and it’s great to see this being recognised, and with more changes set for 2021 we plan to serve our customers even better going forward.”
The A 250 e plug-in hybrid was praised thanks to its all-electric range of 44 miles, BiK tax rate of six per cent, and generous standard equipment.
The GLB gained the judges approval thanks to its seven-seat practicality and range of RDE2-compliant engines.
The A 250 e is on sale now and is priced from £32,980 on-the-road, while GLB starts from £36,930 for the entry-level GLB 200.
