Within hours of winning three categories in the 2012 What Van? Awards, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is proud to announce that its best-selling Caddy and Transporter vans have notched up another trio of prestigious awards in the Fleet Van Awards 2011 – including its top title, the overall Fleet Van of the Year.
This bumper crop of awards shows that in the opinion of authoritative, independent experts, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles offers some of the best vans for all fleet requirements. The three important categories won by Volkswagen in the Fleet Van Awards 2011 are Small Van of the Year, awarded to the Caddy, and Medium Panel Van of the Year and Fleet Van of the Year which were both claimed by the Transporter.
Commenting on Volkswagen’s success, the editor of Fleet Van, Trevor Gelken, said: ‘With new engines, a range that the others can’t match, rock solid residual values and superb dealer back-up, the Volkswagen Caddy knocked last year’s winner off its perch into second place.’
The Transporter received equally high praise: ‘Such is the legendary might of this van, which dates back to the 1950s, that it wins the Medium Van of the Year award again – as it has done every year since our awards began. The judges could find nothing to touch it in the sector.’
Accepting the awards at a prestigious awards ceremony in London today, Alastair Hemmings, National Fleet Manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles commented: ‘What more can I say? With no less than six awards for our vans in one week, I’m sure these will prove to even more fleet managers that Volkswagen’s efficient and desirable range of commercial vehicles make very good sense for every business.’
