East Anglia-based housing association, Flagship Housing Group, signed a deal for 15 of the mid-specification Isuzu D-Max Eiger pick-ups after a competitive pitch against major rivals.
Flagship Housing Group’s fleet of pick-ups – all liveried in its signature Bottle Green colour – will be delivered by Norwich-based dealer, Dingles Isuzu, fully-fitted with load-bed liners, a hardtop canopy and rooftop ladder carrier. The new fleet will be used to manage the maintenance of Flagship Housing Group’s 22,000 homes across the East.
Isuzu UK will also deliver a fleet of Isuzu D-Max pick-ups to civil engineering specialists, Jones Brothers. The award-winning Welsh firm has so far ordered 15 units from the Isuzu D-Max Premium range – including Eiger, Yukon and Utah models – to service projects across the north of Wales.
William Brown, General Manager at Isuzu UK, commented: “The expansion of our business-focused sales activities is already paying dividends. These two fleet deals say a lot about our Brand – not just because they build on our strong core of retail sales we have secured so far
in 2013 – but also because they demonstrate the breadth of the D-Max’s appeal to businesses operating across diverse disciplines.”
In April 2013, Isuzu appointed Gary Scott to the newly-created role of National Fleet Manager.
The Isuzu D-Max has already proved to the hugely popular with UK buyers, after the Japanese-marque announced record sales during the month of March (814 units). Isuzu further extended the appeal of the Isuzu D-Max pick-up with a new range of utility and style-enhancing accessories at the 2013 Commercial Vehicle Show, earlier this month.
The Isuzu D-Max range includes single, extended (with rear-hinged side access panels) and double cab body configurations. Double cab models are available in four specifications: Isuzu D-Max, Eiger, Yukon and Utah. Prices start at £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level Isuzu D-Max 4×2 single cab and rise to £21,999 (CVOTR) for the top-of-the-range Isuzu D-Max Utah 4×4 double cab automatic.
