Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will deliver 220 Transporters to Baxi over the next four years, with the first fleet of 60 already dispatched.
Following a trial period of over six months, Baxi engineers took delivery of its new fleet of 60 on September 12, for use in regular call-outs.
The vans were chosen due to their “multiple health and safety features and compliance with new city-wide height restrictions”.
The vans are good news for independent installers, too, as they will be able to offer Baxi products to homeowners.
Baxi’s national service operations manager Louise Murton said: “Not only are these new vans the perfect solution for our Baxi customer service engineers out on the road, but with a 33% cut in the fleet’s overall CO2 emissions they benefit the environment too.
“I want to say a huge thank you to our dedicated project team of Baxi customer support colleagues both office and field, who have worked closely together to undertake vehicle trials, MPG monitoring, racking modifications, and weighing of the vehicles in order to ensure they meet the correct payload.”
Hannah Denton, area fleet manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles said: “Our Transporter vans are extremely practical, fully-decked out with modern technology, and spacious load-carriers while remaining compliant with Euro 6 emissions legislation – the perfect solution for Baxi’s customer support engineers.”
