Seat seals British Gas fleet deal
Seat has completed the brand’s biggest ever UK fleet deal with the delivery of 500 Seat Leon Ecomotives to British Gas today.
The Spanish marque’s low-CO2 Ecomotive range is available in Ibiza, Alhambra and Leon models, and it was the sub-100g/km Leon hatchback which the UK’s largest energy supplier took delivery of this week.
Green features include Start&Stop technology, revised gearbox ratios, a recommended gear indicator and a refined 1.6-litre common rail diesel engine.
The deal means British Gas drivers will be the first to drive the new, second generation model of the Seat Leon.
Seat UK Head of Fleet and Business Sales, Nick Andrews, said: "The handover of the very first right-hand drive new generation Leon Ecomotives to British Gas is a significant moment for us.
"The delivery of these exciting new cars marks the culmination of months of hard work by the entire Seat fleet and business team. This historic deal very clearly demonstrates our determination to become a fleet manufacturer of choice."
