Record debuts lined up for 'Ally Pally'

MORE than 80 of the biggest companies in the UK fleet market will be exhibiting at the 2001 Fleet Show being held at Alexandra Palace, London, from May 1-3. A total of 18 vehicle manufacturers have stands at the event with 14 UK car debuts - the largest number in the show's 18-year history.

Among the new models fleet decision-makers will be able to see for the first time are the Jaguar X-type due to go on sale on May 23, the Nissan Primera due to be launched in January next year, the Honda Stream which will enter showrooms shortly, MG Rover's new line-up and a new range from Mercedes-Benz. But with the fleet industry facing a number of major issues - including the April 2002 shake-up in company car tax and the ramifications of the Work-related Road Safety Task Group's report into preventing at-work road traffic incidents - the show also provides a major platform for fact-finding for fleet bosses. About 8,000 managing directors, finance directors, human resources directors and fleet managers are expected at the event.
