Vauxhall expands dual-fuel business

INCREASED demand for gas-powered vehicles following last month's Budget has seen Vauxhall radically expand its dual-fuel business to cope with unprecedented fleet demand. The manufacturer, which had expected to sell 2,000 gas powered vehicles this year, claimed sales could reach 3,000 units as a result of post-Budget interest with demand from the public sector and large fleets being augmented by significant interest from sub-100 fleets.

Vauxhall's alternative fuels team of Malcolm Noyle and David Sellors has already been supplemented by a brand management specialist. Now a specialist gas vehicle conversion production line is operating at Vauxhall's Millbrook centre in Bedfordshire and the alternative fuels sales team has been strengthened and integrated into Vauxhall's corporate sales team, field sales team and contract hire team. Under the new set-up Noyle and Sellers will act as managers and alternative fuels experts.
