VW first vehicle manufacturer to sign up to Fleet Show

VOLKSWAGEN is the first vehicle manufacturer to book a stand at Fleet Show 2000 - and Nissan has confirmed it will also be there. Volkswagen's decision to attend the show at the NEC, Birmingham, from April 4-6 came at the London Motor Show, where it was announced that the company's Passat had been voted joint Fleet Car of the Year with the Vauxhall Vectra by members of the Association of Car Fleet Operators.

VW fleet marketing manager Sam Roach said: 'Volkswagen is becoming well established in the fleet market and our decision to attend reflects our position in fleet. Fleet managers and fleet decision-makers who are serious about fleet must look at Volkswagen and the Fleet Show is an excellent forum for the industry.'

Nissan fleet director Simon Carr confirmed: 'We will be at next year's Fleet Show. Next year is a very big year for Nissan in terms of both new products and the development of the brand.' Nissan, which following its collaboration with Renault, has announced that Britain will be its world fleet car capital with the new Primera due to be built at its Sunderland plant is expected to debut two facelifted models at the Fleet Show.
