Cornwall care provider calls in Peugeot Traveller for fleet needs

The Peugeot Traveller’s fleet suitability has been given a huge vote of confidence after a care provider replaced its entire fleet with the nine-seater MPV.

Spectrum – which provides residential care for adults and children, as well as education and outreach support for those living with varying degrees of autism in Devon and Cornwall – has just taken delivery of 25 new Travellers, effectively overwriting its mixed vehicle fleet.

The Travellers will be used to transport those who are cared for by Spectrum, a registered charity that operates 22 adult residential homes in south-west England.

The vehicles will be maintained by Hawkins Motor Group, the same Peugeot dealer that provided a fleet of Citroen Berlingo Multispace models to Spectrum in 2016.

PSA Group fleet director Martin Gurney commented: “The versatility of the new Traveller has helped Peugeot to secure this valuable order.

“The service provided by the Hawkins Motor Group with the earlier order for the Citroen Berlingo Multispace has been an important element in securing the deal. We hope that this will be a building block in an enduring relationship with Spectrum.”

Peugeot’s Traveller is available in three lengths with seating for a driver and up to eight passengers. A variety of seating layouts allows the Traveller to be adapted for a range of passenger needs.

At its most efficient with the 1.56-litre BlueHDi 115 S&S engine, the Traveller can return 54.3mpg whilst emitting 137g/km of CO2.

Molly Benton, brand manager at Fuel Card Services, comments: “Peugeot has a reputation for reliable and hard-working vehicles and the Traveller is a prime example of the brand’s highly effective products. It only makes sense that a company like Spectrum would turn to Peugeot for its fleet needs.”
