DEALS: 30 D-Max vehicles to be supplied
Isuzu are broadening their UK fleet presence after securing two D-Max supply deals worth 30 vehicles.
East Anglia-based housing association, Flagship Housing Group, have signed a deal for 15 mid-specification Isuzu D-Max Eiger pickups after a competitive pitch against major rivals.
Flagship Housing Group’s fleet – all liveried in their signature bottle green colour – will be fully-fitted with load-bed liners, a hardtop canopy and rooftop ladder carrier.
The new fleet will be used to manage the maintenance of Flagship Housing Group’s 22,000 homes across the East.
Isuzu UK will also deliver a fleet of D-Max pickups to Welsh civil engineering specialists, Jones Brothers.
The award-winning firm have ordered 15 units from the Premium range – including Eiger, Yukon and Utah models – to service projects across north Wales.
William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK, said: “The expansion of our business-focused sales activities is already paying dividends.
“These two fleet deals say a lot about our brand – not just because they build on our strong core of retail sales we have secured so far in 2013, but also because they demonstrate the breadth of the D-Max’s appeal to businesses operating across diverse disciplines.”
In April 2013, Isuzu appointed Gary Scott to the newly-created role of National Fleet Manager.
The Isuzu D-Max announced record UK sales during March (814 units), with a new range of utility and style-enhancing accessories also recently added.
Prices start at £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level D-Max 4×2 single cab and rise to £21,999 (CVOTR) for the top-of-the-range Isuzu D-Max Utah 4×4 double cab automatic.
