Fiat have launched a series of special finance packages for van operators effected by January’s impending L.E.Z. restrictions for vans. The main feature of the package is a six-month payment holiday, which in many cases will allow the vehicle to be used with no capital repayment until the L.E.Z.charges come in to place on 3 January 2012.
The van user will be required only to pay the VAT up front. In addition to the payment holiday, a low finance rate of just 1.1 % will be applied to selected vehicles eligible under the scheme. These include: Fiat Fiorino Cargo, Doblò Cargo, Scudo Van, Ducato Van and Ducato Minibus.
“This is an excellent scheme which will benefit many Fiat Professional customers,” says Gerry Clarke, director, Fiat Professional UK. “And it will be extended to vehicles of 10 years or older and to all UK customers – not just those inside the LEZ area.
