BUSINESS CAR MANAGER AWARDS 2015. BMW Fleet News / 21-Jan-2015

BUSINESS CAR MANAGER AWARDS 2015.

BMW Group has won four accolades at the Business Car Manager Awards 2015 including Best SME Directors Company Car for the BMW 520d SE Auto, Best SME Company Green Car with the BMW i3, SME Company Car of the Year with the BMW 520d SE Auto and the BMW Partnership Programme won Best SME Company Car Programme. These awards highlight both our sustainable credentials and the excellent reliability of our product range.
Please see below Business Car Manager’s Editorial Director; Ralph Morton’s comments on the BMW award wins:
Best SME Directors Company Car: BMW 520d SE Auto Saloon
Despite serious opposition in the Best SME Directors Company Car class, BMW reigns victorious for the second time with the evergreen 5-Series.
Simply, no rival can come close to the 5-Series’ mix of performance, appeal, excellent driving satisfaction and value for money. Our award winner - the 520d SE auto can sprint to 62mph in just 7.9 seconds, yet CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km meaning company car tax can be as little as £1,255 per year. It’s difficult to argue with – and clearly our judges didn’t.
Best SME Green Company Car: BMW i3 Electric Car 127kW Auto
BMW revolutionsed the compact company car market when it released the remarkable i3. The car proved that full-electric cars could be stylish, small and still great to drive.
In fact, it’s fair to say that the i3 has legitimised the electric car market in the eyes of the company car driver. Our Green Company Car is capable of 340 miles on a charge and if range anxiety is an issue, then there’s also the Range Extender version, which is fitted with a small three-cylinder petrol engine that acts as a generator.
With running cost savings of more than £2000 over other electric rivals, with the BMW i3 you can drive the future for as little £305 per month through the award-winning BMW Business Partnership Programme, helping you save on company car running costs, company car tax – and the environment.
SME Company Car of the Year: BMW 520d SE Auto
The BMW 520d is outstanding on so many levels, whether you are talking appeal for the company car buyer and driving satisfaction for the enthusiastic driver, or the hard-headed detail of car running costs and low company car tax.
If you are going to just buy one company car, then this is it.
Best SME Company Car Programme: BMW Business Partnership
Other manufacturers try, but the BMW Business Partnership programme, run through BMW and MINI dealers for the small business market, maintains its market leading position for the second successive year.
Latest updates include a mobile optimised website and the ability to compare and shortlist all offers as well as a page dedicated to the new BMW, award-winning, all-electric i range.
For small businesses wanting to run company cars, the BMW Business Partnership Programme remains the best place to start if you want dedicated and professional help.
