Three Wins For BMW at Fleet News Awards 2018.
BMW is delighted to have picked up three wins at this year's Fleet News Awards, which was hosted on 14 March at Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The BMW 5 Series Saloon secured two titles for 'Best Executive Car' and 'New Company Car of the Year', while the BMW i3 (BEV) was crowned 'Best Zero Driving Emission Car'.
With over 1,400 guests in attendance, the annual Fleet News Awards is one of the biggest networking evenings of the year. The main focus of the event is on the awards, which are regarded as amongst the most prestigious in the fleet industry. They aim to recognise excellency among fleet operators, leasing companies, rental companies and other fleet suppliers in the UK.
Finalists are judged by a panel of industry experts chaired by ex-SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan, and the process is audited by Deloitte to ensure all contenders receive fair consideration.
“Winners receive widespread publicity and the respect of industry peers, as well as an acknowledgement of the importance of the people in their business” said Fleet News editor Stephen Briers. “A Fleet News award is the biggest honour in fleet.”
Alongside the wins, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer was highly commended in the 'Best People Carrier' category and the BMW 1 Series was highly commended in the 'Best Compact Premium Car' category.
