Midlands based tyre fitters Lodge Tyre is adding 12 more Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans to its fleet, reinforcing the confidence the company already has in the vehicle. Lodge has chosen six more medium-length 313 BlueEfficiency vans to supplement its Sprinter dominated existing 90-strong fleet.
Reliability, long life-span and a high re-sale value were amongst the reasons that the company chose to turn to the Sprinter again. The fact that Lodge Tyres runs its vans for five years with 250,000 miles on the clock by the time they are sold on is testament to the build quality of the Sprinter.
The new BlueEfficiency vans include several features to help maximise fuel efficiency including low rolling resistance tyres and the ECO-Start system, which reduces consumption by automatically cutting the engine when the vehicle is stationary and re-starting it as the driver prepares to move off.
