Honda UK’s ongoing commitment to R&D has been recognized with a prestigious award at the first ever Great British Fleet Event.
The manufacturer took home the Fleet Technology Award, with judges praising it for its track record of innovation in the fleet sector. Honda was also singled out for the work it does to deliver products and services that support operators running safer, greener and more cost-effective fleets.
Honda’s fleet innovation is visible in both its vehicle line-up and the services it provides to fleet managers, SMEs and user-choosers. All Honda corporate cars are available with the option of advanced safety and connectivity packages Honda Sensing and Honda Connect.
Similar innovation can also be seen in the company’s service provision for fleets, particularly in its novel approach to offering manufacturer-approved support throughout the lifecycle of every fleet vehicle.
The unique Platinum Programme provides fleets with a personal and localized maintenance and servicing package delivered from a nationwide dealer network, with retailers encouraged to interact with fleet drivers through specialist services.
Honda offers additional fleet-specific services alongside this, including a new interactive whole lifecycle costs (WLC) calculator which enables customers to calculate how much a vehicle will cost throughout its entire lifespan under their ownership.
Speaking of the award win, Jacqueline Rowe, fleet engagement manager at Honda, said, “We are passionate that for a Honda to be a Honda, it must be different to every other fleet vehicle on the road and this award demonstrates that this is very much the case.
“To be recognized by our peers for our commitment to technology and innovation is a real honor and is evidence that we offer one of the most advanced, innovative and most useful fleet offerings on the market.”
