Leading UK automotive aftermarket parts distribution company, FPS, has added 35 Vauxhall Combos to its 390-strong fleet.


Painted in FPS’s distinctive peppermint green, the 35 new Combos are all long wheelbase (L2) models with ply lining. The efficient vehicles have start/stop technology which actively reduces the company’s CO2 and fuel usage.


FPS will use the Combos to make up to six deliveries a day to their 2,500 motor-trade clients at 20 sites across the UK – around 50,000 miles each year.

“We are very pleased to add 35 more Vauxhalls to our fleet,” said Stuart Collett, Fleet Manager at FPS. “We currently have 164 Vauxhall vans including a fleet of Vivaros and 10 cars which we have used for the last four to five years without a single fault.”


“The added start/stop feature means we can reduce emissions even further – something that we take seriously here at FPS – while at the same time seeing a return on the overall MPG of our fleet,” added Collett.


“We are pleased that FPS has decided to continue to use Vauxhall and are confident that the business will continue to enjoy their dependability, comfort and economy,” said Richard Collier, Vauxhall’s National Commercial Vehicle and B2B Sales Manager.
