A fleet of 85 new Renault light commercial vehicles (LCV) are now on the job with the Northern Ireland Strategic Housing Authority.
The new maintenance vehicle fleet includes 33 Renault Trafic Panel Vans, 44 Renault Master Panel Vans and eight Master Tippers, all will be put to work keeping 89,000 dwellings maintained across Northern Ireland.
“We considered a number of vehicles through the tender, but none could rival the value or the emissions offered by Renault.
“Despite the large size of the order and our urgent request for the vehicles, all have arrived on schedule and now that we have the first few out in the field, we’ve had excellent feedback from our operatives.”
“Fuel economy is proving to be very impressive and the teams are especially pleased with the quality feel of the vehicles, the level of equipment and the fact that they drive like a car.”
Darren Payne, Sales Director at Groupe Renault UK, welcomed the significant order.
“We are exceptionally pleased that in the face of some very strong competition and through a very extensive selection process, Renault LCVs were deemed to be the best fit for Northern Ireland Housing Executive.
“This is a particularly sizeable order for the region and is a perfect illustration of the broad appeal of our award-winning Light Commercial Vehicles.”
