Mercedes-Benz signs up for CCIA

Mercedes-Benz will be featuring key models from its face-lifted range at this year’s Company Car in Action.

It is the latest in a string of major manufacturers to sign up for the drive and decide event, including GM, Honda and BMW, which will be held at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedfordshire, on June 17, 18 and 19 this year.

A spokesman for Mercedes-Benz said the firm was attending to ensure its product could be experience by fleet managers and key decision-makers.

The spokesman added: “The main focus for Mercedes-Benz at Company Car in Action will be to introduce the brand new C-Class estate and CLC-Class (sports coupé replacement).

“There will also be the newly face-lifted CLS-Class, SLK-Class and SL-Class.

"With excellent residual values, improved safety and driving dynamics, these models are not to be missed.”

If you are a fleet decision-maker and you already receive Fleet News, then you automatically qualify for a free driving pass to test the leading fleet models available at CCIA 2008.

Drivers will be able to use circuits designed for testing and which are normally closed to the public.

They can compare a wide range of models back-to-back, discuss their views with experts from each manufacturer and also review a wide range of services from other fleet suppliers.

In addition, there will be a Fleet Safety Zone, providing a dedicated area where fleets can discover more about risk management services, along with a Fleet Tax Beaters section, showing off some of the low CO2-emission cars now available to fleet operators.
