We're on the Blackfoot
General Motors won eight Vincentric 2014 Best Fleet Value in America™ awards, the second consecutive year GM has topped the list. GM leads all automakers in number of vehicles recognized since the awards program’s launch in 2006.
GM 2014 Best Fleet Value winners:
“GM’s award winning vehicles cover a wide variety of segments including passenger cars, vans, crossovers and trucks,” said David Wurster, president of Vincentric. “This is a testament to the company’s ability to meet the varying needs of a widely segmented fleet industry.”
In its ninth year, the Vincentric Awards are used by fleet operators to understand vehicle lifecycle costs, a key part of the purchase process.
This is the first Best Fleet Value in America award for the Spark EV in the electric vehicle category, which Vincentric introduced last year. Chevrolet’s newest electric vehicle also took top honors in its class in the consumer market awards Vincentric announced earlier this year.
“We are committed to providing our commercial customers with vehicles that are not only great on the road, but great for their bottom line,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet and Commercial. “These awards demonstrate the depth of our product lineup and the business value we provide to all customers – small and large – no matter their needs.”
To determine this year’s award winners, Vincentric analyzed more than 3,400 vehicle configurations in 20 different lifecycle cost scenarios, using eight cost factors: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Lifecycle costs measured in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., resulted in 25 million lifecycle cost measurements used to determine the Best Fleet Value in America winners.
Earlier this month, Chevrolet was named the Best Value Truck Brand in America by Vincentric, in the consumers market.
