In addition, the A 250 e plug-in hybrid won Best Plug-in Hybrid Car and was praised for its all-electric range of 44 miles, while the GLB won Best Large SUV thanks to its seven-seat practicality and range of RDE2-compliant engines.
This award from BusinessCar is a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, following the re-structure of our operations. Over the past year we have introduced a range of fleet-specific services aimed at better supporting our customers and it’s great to see this being recognised, and with more changes set for 2021 we plan to serve our customers even better going forward.Tom Brennan, head of fleet, Mercedes-Benz
