Special EV zone at Company Car in Action

2012 may well be the year of the electric vehicle (EV), with a multitude of cars and vans coming to market. But this year is when it all starts in earnest.

The Citroen C-Zero, Peugeot Ion, Renault Kangoo electric van, Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi i-Miev all debut this year and while sales of each are likely to be in the hundreds, they are the forerunners to a mass market offensive in 2012.

You can be among the first people to test drive products from Peugeot, Citroen and Renault at the new Electric Vehicle Village in association with Energy Saving Trust, held at Company Car In Action on June 28-29 at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.

The Electric Vehicle Village is a perfect opportunity to find out more about EVs. Experts will be on hand to answer questions you might have about range, battery charging, running costs and infrastructure.

While the track will enable visitors to enjoy the driving experience of a range of EVs, the village will allow fleet managers to engage with a wide range of experts who will be able to provide insight into the practical issues of choosing, driving and charging EVs:

• What are the options for charging an EV?
• How do I install charging points at work /home?
• How long does it take to charge?
• How to optimise the range of an EV?
• How clean is an EV?
• What is the wholelife cost of an EV?
