Freelander fleet sales set to rise
22/07/1998 in NEWS
About 23,000 Freelanders are expected to be sold in the UK this year, with the majority being range-topping five-door high-spec models. While fewer than 1,000 of those models have so far been bought by fleets, managing director Peter Kinnaird says significant numbers have been bought with corporate money and gone into the officially unmeasured sub-25 fleet sector.
Kinnaird calculates that about 50% of Freelanders have been bought by companies. Land Rover expects 1999 Freelander sales to reach about 26,000 units, with lower specced models becoming more popular and fleet penetration increasing.
