Meridian Vehicle Solutions offers Volvo XC60 SUV for medium-term rental

Volvo XC60

Meridian Vehicle Solutions is offering the new Volvo XC60 SUV for medium-term rental.

Available on leases from three to 12 months, and in both petrol T5 and diesel D4 R-Design versions, it is priced from around £350 per month excluding VAT on a 1,000-mile per month basis.

Phil Jerome, managing director at Meridian Vehicle Solutions, said: “Fleets and their drivers are clearly very keen on SUVs at the moment and the first-generation XC60 was a very popular option for us thanks to its strong image, high levels of equipment and good economy.

“The new model builds on those attributes and we expect it to be even more successful.

"It fits well into our portfolio, where we offer a small but carefully chosen selection of models that offer considerable appeal for company car drivers and strong pricing for fleets.

“Also, our pricing structure for the XC60 fits into our strategy with medium-term leasing of pricing slightly above traditional contract hire but well below daily rental.

“It’s especially useful that we are able to offer petrol and diesel versions as some fleets start to gradually move their overall fuel mix away from the latter.”

He added that he expected the Volvo to prove popular with high value employees on fixed term contracts or working through their probation periods.

“We have already placed some new XC60s with companies on this basis and it is being very well-received indeed.”
