As an executive agency of the Cabinet Office, the CCS is tasked with delivering services that offer the best value for money and savings for the taxpayer, including those related to vehicle procurement. It can be accessed by Local or Central Government, and other public sector organisations, such as education bodies, devolved authorities, the Police and the NHS, who can take advantage of centrally negotiated and consistent pricing, supply terms and discounts when sourcing cars for fleets.
As a registered supplier of passenger cars, including 4x4s, for the next three years until December 2021, Suzuki’s entire and award-winning “Fit for Fleet” product line-up, which provides corporate users with great value, low emissions and exceptional reliability, will be available to purchase through the CCS Framework. During the last financial year, the scheme generated 37,000 vehicle sales, of which 70% (26,000 units) were in the segments of the market in which Suzuki is present. Highlights of Suzuki’s current new car model range include the latest generation Swift supermini, Ignis compact crossover, lightweight Jimny 4x4 and 2019 Model Year Vitara compact SUV.
Every “Fit for Fleet” model is backed by the Suzuki Business Charter, which ensures the seamless and efficient operation of any size of Suzuki fleet. Combined with the support of an extensive UK-wide network of 157 showrooms, every dealer is on-hand to meet specific business requirements and keep fleets on the move.
Graeme Jenkins, Head of Fleet at Suzuki GB PLC, said: “We are delighted to have been approved as a supplier to the Crown Commercial Service’s Vehicle Purchase Framework. It is one of the most significant public sector supply contracts that a vehicle manufacturer can be awarded, and the latest deal plays an integral part in fulfilling our ambition to increase sales in this growing area of the fleet market. It equally provides Suzuki with valuable exposure to buyers within governmental organisations and presents a significant incremental and profitable opportunity for our brand during the next three years.”
