Nissans join building fleet

ENGINEERING, construction and services group Balfour Beatty has added a number of new Nissan 4x4 pickups and X-trails to its fleet.

The company has taken on 15 2.5-litre turbodiesel 4x4 pickups in a mix of single, king and double cab bodies and two 2.2-litre turbodiesel X-trails. It expects to order more throughout the year.

Balfour Beatty Fleet Services commercial manager Mike Brown said: 'Our site vehicles work under arduous conditions and we expect a high degree of reliability from them – we can't afford long periods of downtime. We have previously had a number of other manufacturers' 4x4 pickups on site but were particularly impressed with the Nissan's towing ability, reliability record and torque.'

Nissan claims the vehicles were chosen because they will cope with demanding roles in the construction business and for the reliability and speed of parts delivery.
