Surely it's not hard to comprehend that fleet and private/user choosers is not mutually exclusive? Just strip the **** out of the base for the like of Telstra/whoever and make the cream up the food chain of models. Smash out the fleets to cover fixed costs and little more. Everything above that becomes stupid profitable. Buuuuuuuuut what would I know. I only ran manufacturing plants for 20 years in a variety of industries.Correct. One of DM's first "executive decisions" (around 2004) was to tell Telstra, and a few other major fleet customers, to literally f/off. Telstra used to buy around 15,000 p.a. Commodore wagons at that time.
GM decided to pursue private sales instead, with their finest Daewoo product.
