Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has signed a deal to supply Sky with an additional 1,120 vehicles.
The agreement is for 930 Caddy Maxi Startline BlueMotion Technology (BMT) and 190 Transporter Startline BMT vehicles.
The vehicles, which will start to be delivered later this month, will boost Sky’s Volkswagen fleet to 2,500.
With more than 10 million TV and broadband customers across the country and thousands of Sky engineer home visits a day, the well-known Sky liveried Volkswagen vans have become a regular sight on British roads.
Operational benefits for Sky include class-leading residual values (based on CAP data), and a range of frugal, fuel-efficient engines that emit low levels of CO2, helping to save on fuel costs and reduce the fleet's impact on the environment.
Other reasons why the Sky team selected the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi include its generous load area – 4.2 m³ and a load length of 2.25 m – and high level of standard equipment, while the Transporter was also selected for its practicality and its fuel consumption (40.4 mpg).
All of the new vehicles have had racking installed and will be wrapped in Sky’s livery.
David Landy, fleet manager for Sky, said: ‘We chose a fleet solution which aligned to the goals of our business.
"We wanted vehicles that would give us best MPG, lowest CO2 and easy accessibility to our customers.
"We also wanted vehicles known for longevity, reliability and good residual values.
"Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is a great operational fit for our business."
