Honda will be giving fleets a sneak preview of a new diesel engine in the CR-V at Company Car in Action (CCIA), while Peugeot will be bringing its new electric van.
Honda launched its 1.6-litre diesel engine in the Civic earlier this year, and it is due to go into the CR-V in October, but guests at CCIA will be able to drive it four months early. It will be at Millbrook Proving Ground alongside the Civic 1.6 i-DTEC, Insight and Jazz models.
Dave Girling, dealer corporate manager at Honda said: "It is extremely important for us to be at CCIA; it’s a fantastic opportunity to provide fleet operators with the chance to experience our cars and appreciate our ability to deliver some of the lowest CO2 emissions along with a high specification standard – exactly that which company car drivers and their bosses want in a vehicle."
Peugeot, whose Partner Electric van was unveiled this week at the CV Show, will make the vehicle available for testing at CCIA.
The Peugeot Partner van is now available as a 100% electric vehicle (EV), which qualifies for the recently announced extension to the Government’s EV grant, with a maximum of £8,000 support for commercial vehicles.
The new Partner Electric, powered by two high-energy lithium-ion battery packs with a capacity of 22.5kW/h and a range of 105 miles, permits companies access to low emission restricted zones.
Maintaining its practicality, the Partner Electric has the largest load volume in the small van segment – up to 3,7m3 for the longer lengthened version with a payload of up to 685kg.
Visitors will also get the chance to drive the new Peugeot 2008 compact crossover, as well as a wide range of other Peugeot products, including the new 208 GTi and the revised 3008 Hybrid4 with CO2 emissions from 88g/km.
