Mercedes Benz has been awarded the prestigious Fleet Manufacturer of the Year Award at the Fleet World Honours 2015.
This recognised the marque as the best manufacturer in the Fleet industry in the last twelve months, an accolade that will come as no surprise to anyone who has hired one of their extensive and versatile range through Signature on a self-drive hire basis. In particular, the award notes the level of innovation, quality and sustainability present in the manufacturer’s output.
Announcing the awards, Steve Moody, Editor of Fleet World magazine, said: “The progression has continued for Mercedes-Benz with year-on-year
fleet sales increases and an ever-strengthening line-up of vehicles, such as the A-Class, GLA-Class and the excellent new C-Class. The result is a wide range of cars and an offering that is second to none in the fleet market.”
This wasn’t the only award given to Mercedes Benz on the night, as two of their new cars also received prizes. The C-Class was awarded Best Executive Compact Car, for reasons that Moody explains: ““Mercedes-Benz seems to have skipped a generation with the C-Class, which now looks and feels like a downsized S-Class. Technology-rich, it’s home to the best interior in the segment and features a wide choice of engines, including diesel hybrid and a plug-in hybrid version.”
The much-loved S Class also came in for praise, winning the Best Luxury Car award. It was chosen for the new benchmark it has set in the luxury car sector, largely due to its ‘unprecedented quality, comfort and refinement’.
