BSM switches fleet deal to Peugeot

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.

They can choose from:

  • 208 Active 5dr PureTech 1.2 VTi (Petrol, Manual)
  • 208 Active 5dr PureTech 1.2 e-VTi EGC (Petrol, Auto)
  • 208 Active 5dr 1.4 HDi (Diesel, Manual)
  • 308 Access 5dr PureTech 1.2 VTi (Petrol, Manual)
  • 308 Active 5dr PureTech 1.2 E-THP (Petrol, Auto)
  • 308 Access 5dr 1.6 BlueHDi (Diesel, Manual)
  • 308 Allure 5dr 2.0 BlueHDi (Diesel, Auto)

Scott Westerby, head of fleet operations for Peugeot, said: “Learning to drive is a key moment in the journey of the motorist and Peugeot has long produced a wide choice of vehicles extremely well suited to the start of this experience. Our latest range is very modern and brings features that enhance the safety and ease of driving.”

BSM previously switched back to Vauxhall in 2011, after a short-lived deal with Fiat.

    Peugeot will be a new challenge and I hope it will be good for a while too. I'm sure we haven't see the last of Vauxhall though...

    I've been a Peugeot driver in the past. Loved it. Now as an instructor, can't wait. I'll be receiving my 208 Diesel on the 8th October.
