Peugeot Scores Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year Award

Peugeot has added another accolade to its large display cabinet after earning of one of the most important awards in the calendar, the Fleet News 2011 Awards’ "Green Fleet Manufacturer of the Year"’.

The award, which was presented during a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, was decided by a panel made up of fleet industry experts and senior members of the Fleet News editorial team, chaired by former SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan and audited by Deloitte.

“Peugeot continued to drive down average emissions in 2010 and is upping the ante for 2011 with an electric vehicle, new low-CO2 diesel models, a new e-HDi micro-hybrid option and the launch of the world’s first diesel-electric hybrid,”
said Simon Harris, deputy editor at Fleet News, when presenting the award.

“We are absolutely delighted. This is a major accolade for us when efficiency and lower CO2 emissions are top of every fleet buyer’s agenda,” added Phil Robson, Fleet Director for Peugeot UK, who collected the award.

”It really is testament to the sustained effort that Peugeot has made over many years to refine its existing engine technology and to bring to market new, cleaner technologies that offer a genuine solution for everyday motoring.  With the 3008 HYbrid4 – the world’s first diesel hybrid - coming later this year and a plug-in hybrid to follow soon after, we are the brand ‘on the move’ and one with a priority on cleaner, more fuel efficient motoring.”

Peugeot also celebrated the award well away from the big city lights of London’s West End at its Simon Bailes Stockton-on-Tees Dealership, which has confirmed delivery of 20 electric Peugeot iOn cars to the Switch EV project.
