March 20, 2014: Mercedes-Benz scooped two wins at the annual Fleet News Awards in London last night. The Awards recognise the best and brightest within the fleet industry, the most competitive cars, initiatives and operators in the UK right now.

Mercedes-Benz was announced as ‘Most Improved Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’, being recognised for making the biggest strides forward in terms of fleet relationships over the past 12 months.

Nick Andrews, Head of Fleet, Mercedes-Benz UK, commented: “We’re delighted to have been recognised as the Most Improved Fleet Manufacturer by Fleet News. This accolade confirms the commitment we have to our customers; we’ve listened to their feedback, we’ve acted, and now we are seeing the success. We couldn’t have achieved this without the outstanding product development across the range, the exceptional service our retailer network delivers, and the hard work from colleagues across the entire organisation.”

Stephen Briers, Editor of Fleet News, added: “Mercedes-Benz has gone from being a closed-door manufacturer to one keen to listen to customers and fleet influencers with feedback forums and regional summits. It has an outstanding product line-up which is improving all the time and has invested heavily in a new staffing structure, employing more people to raise its service levels. Mercedes-Benz has realigned its focus and culture, making it much more fleet orientated.”

The second Award of the night was for the inaugural ‘Best Chauffeur Car’ prize – presented for the S-Class – rounding off a busy start to the year for this flagship model, with five awards already under its belt.

In announcing the Award, Stephen Briers commented: “The S-Class combines supreme comfort, the latest technology and a strong running costs proposition to appeal to drivers, passengers and business owners alike. It takes Mercedes-Benz back to the top of the league for quality; reputation and image par excellence.”

Already a fleet favourite, the new S-Class will this year be available with a choice of four-, six-, eight- and 12-cylinder engines as well as three hybrids. Setting new benchmarks in luxury, technology and efficiency, the S-Class brings new levels of driver and passenger comfort to the market.
