Astra van insurance holders may be pleased to know that due to Vauxhall's success it has just become the biggest supplier of police vans and cars in Britain.
The company states that this recent achievement is due to the value for money and low emissions of its vehicles, the quick rotation of replacement cars and vans, and the support the firm provides to customers.
It has won contracts for six regions, so 71% of the 52 Police Authorities around the UK are now contracted to purchase vehicles from Vauxhall.
The company's fleet sales director says, "We are delighted to have won so many of the tenders and our success proves that Vauxhall's infrastructure and superb range of vehicles are the best."
The police regions involved in the contracts will be using Corsa, Astra, Insignia, Astravan, Combo, Vivaro and Movano vehicles from Vauxhall's range of models.
The fact that so many Vauxhall vehicles have low emissions will enable the police force and any other business van insurance holders with Vauxhall vans to reduce the cost of running their vehicle as many low emission vans and car are eligible for tax breaks due to their smaller carbon footprint.
This may be a particularly welcome added bonus, especially for van drivers who have found cheap Astra van insurance.
