IG Group reached out to Pulman Group with their goals, and they successfully acquired 14 Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid vehicles to add to their fleet and move towards greener transport for their business.

The Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid vehicle houses the latest generation of TSI petrol engine in conjunction with a powerful electric motor delivering a combined system power available in 204 and 272PS variants. The inclusion of the electric motor gives the vehicle up to 62 miles of extra range which is fantastic for every day driving and business miles too.

Throughout the process of acquiring the fleet from Pulman group, Nathan Hoey, the Director of IG Group commented on the efficiency of Pulman Group saying “The process of purchasing the vehicles was very easy. Staff were very attentive and made the process almost seamless.”
