The biggest ever fleet deal for the Isuzu D-Max has just been signed by the Environment Agency who have ordered 197 of the impressive pick-ups.
The government agency has ordered a mix of extended cab, single cab and double cabs to be delivered over the coming months.
The Isuzu D-Max pick-ups are to be finished in silver and have drop-in top liner bodies and be fitted with all-terrain tyres and also branded with the Environment Agency logo and livery.
The pick-ups will be used to help the agency implement its aims of creating better places for wildlife and people and to help support sustainable development.
Isuzu D-Max wins long scrutiny process
Alan Able, Isuzu’s fleet operations manager, said he was pleased with their biggest order yet because it underlined their vehicle’s offering in an exhaustive and rigorous scrutiny process.
He added: “The Isuzu D-Max offers unrivalled reliability, low running costs and tough off-road capabilities.
“These are combined with a refined driving experience and a quality interior is well as a dedicated fleet support management operation.”
Dale Eynon, head of fleet for the Environment Agency, said: “We work to protect the environment for wildlife and people we are also looking to reduce her own energy use, emissions and waste.
“With this in mind we are continuing the fleet carbon reduction programme by opting for vehicles with low emissions in the class and which are suitable for our challenging environmental work.”
Isuzu D-Max is an award winner
Since its launch in 2012, the Isuzu D-Max has impressed a variety of trade magazines and has picked up a wide range of awards.
The D-Max comes in three body styles; extended, single and double cab and prices start from £14,749 OTR.
The pick-up is fitted with the firm’s 2.5 litre diesel engine with twin turbo which will produce 163 PS. This gives the vehicle the ability of towing 3.5 tonnes (braked) which is a class-leading performance.
The pick-up should return around 39mpg on the combined cycle and comes with a five-speed auto transmission or a six speed manual gearbox.
However, one of the big attractions for buying the Isuzu D-Max is the fact it comes with the firm’s five-year or 125,000 mile warranty as standard.
