(3BL Media) Detroit, MI - July 19, 2012 - General Motors is using the voice of its fleet and commercial customers to tout product benefits in its newly launched advertising campaign. These customers bring to life how GM vehicles impact their businesses and their bottom lines.

Businesses and organizations worldwide rely on vehicles from Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac for everything from feeding the elderly to helping to meet sustainability goals.

“Our mission is to provide great products, innovative business solutions and an exceptional customer experience,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, Fleet and Commercial Sales. “What better way to convey the benefits of our vehicles and the services we provide than having our customers tell their own stories?”

“Stories from the Road” Customer Stories

Meals on Wheels Ministry – The reliability of its fleet vehicles is critical to Meals on Wheels Ministry and to those who depend on the program in Tyler, Texas.

City of Rock Hill, S.C. – A leader in cultivating a fuel-efficient fleet, the municipality relies on severalChevrolet vehicles, including Volt, Silverado, Equinox, Caprice and Tahoe, to meet its sustainability goals. The city was given the “Greenest Fleet” award in South Carolina in 2010. The fleet’s use of alternative fuels – including E85, CNG and electricity – has helped to avoid the use of more than 47,000 gallons of gasoline and saved the city $670,000 in 2011 alone.

Pacific Gas & Electric – The utility company has the largest fleet in California, covering an expansive and rugged territory from just north of Los Angeles to Oregon and the Pacific Ocean to Nevada. As part of that fleet, PG&E counts on GMC Sierra Hybrid pick-ups to provide the versatility and capability to get the work done. Cost savings are also key with each truck traveling an average of more than 15,000 miles a year and saving an average of more than $700 each on fuel costs.
