BMW has continued its impressive run at the coveted Fleet News Awards, securing the Fleet Manufacturer of the Year title for the sixth consecutive year in 2024. This achievement is particularly significant as the award is voted for by Fleet News readers, who are certified fleet decision-makers, reflecting the brand's strong reputation across the wider sector. The award ceremony was held at Grosvenor House in London, where the achievements of the fleet industry were celebrated in style. In addition to the Manufacturer of the Year accolade, BMW also triumphed in individual vehicle categories. The BMW i4 claimed the Best Premium Car title, while the BMW 5 Series earned the Best Executive Car award.

"BMW racks up its sixth consecutive win at fleet manufacturer of the year, clear evidence that the company never takes fleet for granted and is always looking for ways to improve its service and support for both companies and their drivers."


Winner Best Executive Car: BMW 5 Series.

"BMW has covered all the powertrain bases with the new 5 Series and the electric i5 is arguably the best of the lot. The PHEV is good; the full electric is even better with excellent range and a Touring option which is unique in the executive segment. It’s a phenomenal car which strengthens BMW’s position as the key fleet model in this class."


The new BMW 5 Series was named Best Executive Car, solidifying its position as a leading choice for business users in the UK. Launched in October 2023, the eighth-generation BMW 5 Series fuses advanced technology with an elegant and sporting saloon style, generous space, and exceptional refinement. The BMW 5 Series offers a choice of powertrains – petrol, plug-in hybrid, and the all-electric BMW i5, providing fleet customers complete flexibility depending on the needs of their drivers.

"We are immensely proud to be recognised once again as Fleet Manufacturer of the Year, and I'd like to express my sincere thanks to Fleet News and its readers for their continued support and recognition. We are also delighted to receive individual accolades for the BMW i4 and 5 Series. These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team and our commitment to delivering vehicles that meet the evolving needs of the fleet sector."


Winner Best Premium Car: BMW i4.

"The i4 feels and drives like a classic BMW – there are no compromises. Extensive features, competitive pricing, impressive range and popular with drivers, if you are transitioning to an electric vehicle, the i4 is the perfect choice."
