Seat has stuck a deal to supply M Group Services with more than 700 new Seat Ibiza FR models – its biggest ever fleet deal.
The agreement will replace 500 outgoing Seat models, while adding a further 200 models to the fleet.
M Group Services says it chose the Ibiza FR 1.0 TSI 95PS five-speed manual due to its balance of safety, practicality and comfort.
Jeremy Harrison executive director for M Group Services Plant and Fleet Solutions, said: “After a tough competitive tender process, Seat won the tender to supply these vehicles into M Group’s energy division for the data services meter reading teams.
“Seat provided us with a high-quality vehicle with a good specification and safety standard at a very competitive total cost of ownership.
“Seat has also done an excellent job in supporting us post sale with the nationwide delivery of these vehicles to our meter readers through a particularly challenging time.”
Seat UK head of fleet, Craig Cavanagh, added: “Seat Fleet has gone from strength to strength over recent years, and our biggest ever fleet order with such an great brand is a yardstick of our outstanding progress as both a manufacturer and fleet provider.
“This agreement builds on our existing partnership and sees hundreds of the Group’s fleet drivers remain in Seat vehicles for the foreseeable future, which is testament to the quality of the Seat range which the driver’s rely on and the service we offer to fleets as a whole.”
