206 wins first major fleet order

PEUGEOT has announced the first major fleet order for its new 206, the UK-built supermini. Kunick Leisure, a supplier of amusement machines for pubs and clubs, has ordered 100 diesel 206s and extended its solus Peugeot fleet policy until 2002.

Malcolm Deighton, Kunick's fleet manager, said: 'Our drivers cover high mileages each year, so it's essential that the cars we give them provide an enjoyable and stress-free driving environment.' He praised the 'exceptionally high level of spec' in the 206s, which will each cover an average of 30,000 miles a year on duty with Kunick's service staff. The company operates a selection of Peugeot 106, 306 and 406 models, as well as some Peugeot vans, and has renewed its three-year-old solus supply arrangement with Peugeot.

John Taylor, Peugeot's fleet and leasing director said fleet interest in the 206 is high. 'I'm delighted that Kunick Leisure, an important and long standing Peugeot customer, is one of the first to make a commitment to a car which will, I believe, prove to be as much of a motoring milestone as the 205,' he said.
