BMW and Bill Plant Driving School Partnership. / 02-Nov-2015

BMW and Bill Plant Driving School Partnership.

We are delighted to announce our new large-scale partnership with Bill Plant Driving School. With over 700 fully qualified driving instructors, Bill Plant operates throughout England, Scotland and Wales to provide a professional, relaxed and encouraging environment for learner drivers.
With plans to supply 3,600 vehicles over the next three years, the BMW 1 Series will become the new lead model for the nationwide organisation of driving instructors. Bill Plant will also replace all of their automatic transmission vehicles with BMW i3 range extender models over the same three year period.
Providing better fuel economy and a higher level of standard specification than the company’s previous lead model, the Audi A3, the BMW 1 Series is the ideal choice for driving instructors.
In addition to its aesthetic appeal and unrivalled road presence, this model range boasts a selection of technology that can vastly improve the learner driver experience. Instructors will benefit from an expanded range of BMW EfficientDynamics features, Electric Power Steering, Brake Energy Regeneration and an Auto Start Stop function, a feature which is also available in conjunction with an automatic transmission. Standard equipment also includes ECO PRO mode, which can be activated using the included Driving Experience Control switch.
This new partnership marks the driving school’s ongoing efforts to improve the experience of their qualified instructors and learner drivers alike. While their new lead model will surely attract many new customers, the company has also greatly reduced its sign writing to further enhance the model’s appeal among the younger generation.

We are pleased to announce that BMW has recently won Fleet Car Manufacturer of the Year at the 2015’s GreenFleet awards.
Held on 22 October, the annual ceremony saw twenty awards presented to winners in a variety of different categories by celebrity host, Jo Caulfield.
This most recent accolade celebrates the green credentials of the BMW range as a whole. With fuel efficient, low emission models to suit any type of company, we are able to tailor green fleet solutions to our customer’s exact requirements. With the new BMW 2 Series and 4 Series, along with the BMW X4 and X5 models offering outstandingly low whole-life costs, there are plenty of options to choose from. Let’s not forget the arrival of the BMW i range and how our innovative electric vehicles have responded to the increasing popularity of green fleet driving. 
Another factor that surely contributed to this achievement is BMW EfficientDynamics, our philosophy to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while enhancing driving dynamics. Its package of innovative functions covers the drive system, energy management and vehicle concept, and is a standard feature of every new BMW.

‘Entrepreneur of the year’ rewarded with BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé. BMW Fleet News / 05-Oct-2015

‘Entrepreneur of the year’ rewarded with BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé.

BMW Group recently sponsored the First Women Awards ‘Entrepreneur’ category, which saw a shortlist of six nominees reduced to just one winner, Kate Lester of Diamond Logistics.
The inspirational entrepreneur has succeeded in growing her courier business to over 25 sites since its launch in 1992. To reward her success, BMW Group has given Kate the use of a BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé for three months.
With its broad wheelbase, ultra-low centre of gravity and arrow-like proportions, the elegant coupé turns heads wherever it goes. However, it’s not just a style statement. Offering four doors, a high level of standard specification and impressive fuel efficiency, this luxury model provides real substance, too.
Of winning the award, Kate says, “It was a privilege and a delight.” We hope that the many benefits of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé will make doing business even more enjoyable for her in the months to come.

What the summer budget briefing means for your fleet. BMW Fleet News / 05-Oct-2015

What the summer budget briefing means for your fleet.

Understanding the impact that the latest budget announcements will have on your fleet and drivers is crucial. Here are the key points that will affect your fleet:
• For all cars registered on or after 1 April 2017, VED will vary according to CO2 emissions for the first year only, followed by a subsequent standard flat rate (SR) of £140. Zero emissions cars are excluded and will attract a rate of £0
• Cars with a retail list price of over £40,000 will attract a £310 supplement on their SR rate for the first five years
• Fuel duty remains as it is currently, however the Government has committed to exploring the possibility of extending the first MOT for a new car from three years to four years
• Road improvement announcements were made for a number of areas, specifically the North, Midlands and South West of England
