BSM has selected Peugeot as its new vehicle supplier, providing 1000 vehicles a year for driving instructors.
From June, BSM instructors will be offered one of three versions of the Peugeot 208, or can opt for the larger 308 with four variants.
Both the 208 and 308 are available with either manual or automatic gearboxes, with petrol or diesel engines, and all with dual pedal controls.
BSM’s vibrant and highly recognisable orange livery will be standard.
Peugeot was selected as BSM’s new vehicle supplier after a comprehensive tender process which involved consultations with instructors.
Mark Peacock, head of BSM, said: “Peugeot has put together a package to supply our instructors with a modern range of cars that have class-leading MPG figures, a high level of specification and more standard features.”
He continued: “We want to ensure that BSM delivers a first class experience to both its learners and instructors and we believe that our new agreement with Peugeot helps us reach this goal.”
Peugeot will supply approximately 1,000 new vehicles to BSM instructors every year.
