PEUGEOT WINS ANOTHER AWARD FOR THE EXPERT AT THE 2018 BUSINESS VAN OF THE YEAR AWARDS Thursday 29 March 2018 PDF Print Expert sales grew massively by some 30 per cent in its first full year on sale. • Peugeot Expert notches up second 2018 award win • Judges recognise Expert for its styling, low running costs and Dealer network support • Expert production increased to meet growing demand The Peugeot Expert won its latest award earlier today when it was named the ‘Best Large Trades Van’ at the Business Van of the Year Awards. The Peugeot Expert 1.6 BlueHDi 115 S&S Professional shared the award with the Citroën Dispatch. Both vans are built in the Hordain plant in northern France. The PSA Group recently announced that production would be expanded at the plant to meet growing demand for the models. Editorial Director of Business Vans, Ralph Morton, said: "The Best Large Trades van is the iconic award. So congratulations to Peugeot for winning this award for the first time with its oh-so-stylish but highly practical Expert van. Apart from being immensely capable, the Peugeot's running costs help underpin its winning status in the Business Van of the Year Awards." “Expert sales flew in the face of market trends last year”, says Louise Neilson, Head of Business Sales for Peugeot, “While SMMT data shows that new registrations in the Expert’s market sector fell by around three per cent, Expert sales grew massively by some 30 per cent in its first full year on sale. We now have a complete range of Expert panel vans in three lengths, and with three equipment levels, offering exceptional choice. We are delighted that the Business Vans judges have recognised the Expert’s appeal to business customers.” The Expert has already won a string of awards since it had its global reveal at the CV Show in 2016 and the award from Business Vans is the second so far in 2018.
