FCA - proud sponsors of GreenFleet 100
GreenFleet’s second ‘100 Most Influential’ list features individuals who understand the challenges of running an environmentally-conscious fleet and have refined their skills and experience to become recognised as the benchmark and trend setters in the industry
We at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Fleet and Business appreciate that managing a fleet of any size brings challenges, especially in an environment where return on sales is the foremost consideration of any decision.
The GF100 most influential list many individuals who understand this acutely and have refined their skills and experience to become recognised as benchmarks and trend setters in the industry.
FCA Fleet and Business are proud to support many of these customers in achieving their objectives. 2017 has been another successful year for FCA fleet and Business.
New models introduced in 2016 – Fiat Tipo and 124 Spider, Fiat Professional Fullback and Talento, Abarth 124 spider and the multi-award-winning Alfa Romeo Giulia – have opened our multi-brand offering up to larger fleets and our products are now firmly established on a growing number of choice lists.
In October 2017 we launched the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, and the interest in FCA brands continues to grow.
FCA ticks every fleet box
We at FCA bring the benefit of a multi‑brand fleet solution, offering our customers a wide variety of choice. We provide a ‘one‑stop-shop’ for fleets of any size and with a diverse portfolio of cars including the iconic Fiat 500, the robust Jeep Renegade and the stunning Alfa Romeo Stelvio above, the line-up of vehicles can tick every fleet box.
We anticipate that we will maintain this growth throughout 2018 with the first full year of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Alfa Romeo’s first, multi-award-winning SUV delivers on every front, thanks to its distinctive Italian design, leaving the impression of sophisticated simplicity both inside and out.
On the road, drivers are promised an exhilarating experience thanks to the Stelvio’s exclusive AlfaLinkTM suspension, perfect weight distribution and an outstanding power-to-weight ratio.
The Stelvio benefits from ground-breaking technical solutions, including Torque Vectoring technology, for the utmost control of traction, and the Integrated Brake System, which significantly reduces braking distance on any road surface.
Stelvio will appeal to wallets as well as hearts. Its lightweight structure and sophisticated engines deliver excellent fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions. The 2.2 Turbo Diesel, available with 180hp and 210hp, is the first all-aluminium diesel among the new-generation engines from Alfa Romeo. It features the latest-generation MultiJet II injection system with Injection Rate Shaping (IRS). The electrically-operated variable geometry turbocharger offers state-of-the-art mechanics and minimises response times, guaranteeing benefits in terms of efficiency.
Based on the strong residual values (RVs) seen for the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the initial strong demand for Stelvio, we anticipate that Stelvio RVs will be among the strongest in its class, leading to affordable running costs.
All-new Jeep Compass
Another source of growth in 2018 will come from the introduction of the all-new Jeep Compass, a key addition to the Jeep portfolio and to our range. Combining unparalleled 4x4 off-road capability with contemporary and authentic Jeep design, excellent on‑road refinement and industry-leading safety systems, the Jeep Compass will be sufficient for even the most discerning fleet customer.
In order to meet all customers’ needs and preferences, the Jeep Compass offers six powertrain combinations, including two petrol and three diesel engine options, and two gearboxes: the nine-speed automatic and the six-speed manual. Best-in-class off-road capability comes courtesy of two intelligent 4x4 systems: Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low for the best four‑wheel‑drive performance on any surface, on or off-road, and in any weather condition.
Driver and passenger safety were also of paramount importance in the development of the all-new Jeep Compass, which offers more than 70 available active and passive safety and security features. This resulted in the Compass being awarded the highest five-star Euro NCAP safety rating in 2017.
We’re confident that the all-new Jeep Compass will provide our customers with a safe, comfortable and connected everyday driving experience, offering open‑air freedom and a full array of advanced user-friendly connectivity. With a starting price of just £22,995 OTR the new car represents outstanding value for money.
FCA Fleet and Business has been specifically designed to bring the all-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Jeep Compass, together with our existing models, under one umbrella to make things simpler for businesses. As a result of our customer-centric approach, we’ve been recognised as the ‘Most Improved Fleet Manufacturer’ at the Fleet World Honours awards and our brands are appearing on many more fleet policies.
Our customers appreciate the value of a multi-brand solution and it’s a portfolio we’re incredibly proud of. We’re setting a new standard in fleet provision and we expect great things for 2018.
