Sun 20th Sep 2020

The UK’s blue light services have received another delivery of Peugeot vehicles, strengthening the car brand’s association with emergency services across the country.

The French car company, part of the larger Groupe PSA has delivered 611 vehicles to 38 different police and fire authorities in the UK, with an increasing number of electric vehicles included as part of the order.

In total Peugeot will deliver 1,500 new cars and vans to the emergency services, including the Partner, Expert, Boxer vans as well as the new 208, e-208, 508, the 3008 SUV and the 5008 SUV.

In addition to the large order, Peugeot has also continued to loan vehicles at no extra cost to the police and fire services during the pandemic. These additional vehicles have been used as back-up vehicles for West Midlands police.

Of the order 13 per cent are fully electric, and add to more than 5,000 vehicles since Peugeot began working with UK emergency services in 2015.

David Peel, managing director of Peugeot UK, said: “It’s a great testament of build quality, reliability and performance that so many of our vehicles continue to be chosen for operational purposes by the UK’s police and fire departments.

“There are few greater tests than the daily use of our police and fire departments, and we look forward to continuing to work with our public services in the future.”
