Renault Offers Up to GBP 6000 Off New Van or Minibus Purchase

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - Swinton Commercial welcomes the news from Renault, which is offering eligible London-based commercial vehicle users up to GBP 6,000 off the basic price of its vans, conversions and minibus ranges. The scheme comes ahead of the implementation of the new vehicle emissions standards for London for 3 January 2012 as part of the Low Emission Zone (LEZ).

The UK's leading high street retailer of van insurance surveyed 1,200 online customers and found that 27% of van drivers would consider buying a van or minibus from Renault under the new scheme. The survey revealed that the main appeal with the scheme is the reduced price of the new vehicle ranges, with 21% claiming it would be a bigger influencing factor than the LEZ entry savings.

The scheme will help customers ensure that they are exempt from having to pay the GBP100 daily charge for using affected vehicles in the Low Emission Zone, as well as avoiding the GBP 500 penalty for non-compliance.

Phil Moss, Commercial Vehicle Manager at Swinton said, "It's great that Renault are contributing to helping drive down vehicle emissions in London and offering van and minibus drivers such great savings, however van drivers should always remember to check the cost of a van insurance policy before purchasing a new vehicle."

Renault will be offering the following savings to qualifying customers across its fully LEZ-compliant range on orders placed between now and 31 March 2012:

  • Up to GBP 2,300 off Kangoo Compact
  • Up to GBP 2,900 off Kangoo Van
  • Up to GBP 2,700 off Kangoo Van Maxi
  • Up to GBP 4,600 off Trafic (Panel Van, Crew Van and Platform Cab)
  • Up to GBP 6,000 off Master (Panel Van, Crew Van and conversions)
  • Up to GBP 4,600 off Trafic Passenger (nine seats) and up to GBP 3,600 off Master Passenger models (six, nine and 17 seats)
