Mazda is securing significant conquest fleet business as a result of the ultra-low lead times that have come with the ‘fleet vehicle sold order pot’ programme.

With vehicle waiting lists at some manufacturers averaging 12-14 weeks, and some even stretching to up to six months, businesses in the UK are turning to Mazda, which endeavours to deliver vehicle fleets within just 10-14 days.

“Our fleet centres are already starting to take orders for delivery in March when the new registration plate is introduced," explains Mazda Fleet and Remarketing Director Peter Allibon.

“Some manufacturers will not be able to deliver new cars in March because they have such long lead times, but Mazda will be able to meet demand."

At present, the Japanese manufacturer’s most popular car in the fleet sector is the Mazda3 hatchback fitted with the recently-uprated 112bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine. As a result of recent revisions, the oil burner now manages to emit just 117g/km of CO2; offering significant savings in terms of running costs.

The Mazda3 range is available now from £14,230 on the road.
