Fiat release new Ducato versions
07 August 2012
Vans and light commercial vehicles are the modern-day workhorses of the UK.
Hundreds of thousands of vans transport goods to customers and clients, but if just one if forced out of action for an extended period of time, businesses could really seen negative effects on their bottom lines.
When money is so tight, as it currently is for many firms across the UK, getting the most out of a fleet can be a major advantage.
Van leasing is an easy way of doing this.
Not only does it often prove to be more economical than purchasing a vehicle outright - as the monthly fees tend to work out much lower than basic list prices - but it is much easier to change vehicles when newer versions become available.
For example, the Fiat Ducate 30 short-wheel base Diesel 2.3 Multijet 130 costs £23,694 to buy, but can be acquired as part of a contract scheme from £257.44 a month.
There are substantial savings to be had and if a more suitable model becomes available then a firm does not need to worry about the effects of depreciation on their budgets.
Fiat has announced new models in the Ducato range which may be more in sync with the needs of some drivers - especially if they could make use of air conditioning, front fog lights, Blue&Me, GPS or Start&Stop technology.
Sebastiano Fedrigo, director of Fiat Professional UK, believes that some businesses will find the advancements in the Tecinco appealing.
"The addition of these new Tecnico versions provides further testimony to Fiat Professional's commitment to provide customers with new technological features, environmentally-friendly solutions and great value for money products with which they can confidently conduct their business," he added.
So whether it is budget considerations or up-to-date equipment that matters to a business, van leasing can play apart in successful operations.
