Fleet decision-makers are being urged not to miss out on the UK’s premier driving event by registering now for Company Car in Action (CCIA), which takes place at Millbrook Proving Ground on June 11 and 12.

Visitors will not only be able to see the latest models on offer, they will also be able to drive more than 300 vehicles,  unaccompanied on Millbrook’s 50 miles of test track, which includes city road conditions, an off-road course, a twisty hill route and high speed bowl.

The city course is ideal for assessing manoeuvrability and the latest stop-start technology and the challenging hill route is perfect to familiarise yourself with vehicle braking and handling, while the high-speed bowl can ensure cars are driven at motorway speeds in a safe environment.

Fleets will also be able to get involved in a debate on how to control employees using their own cars for business – the so-called grey fleet.

‘The Great Grey Fleet Debate’, a panel-based discussion hosted by Fleet News, will see fleets and industry experts consider the best ways to tackle the issue of employees using their own cars for business purposes.

In addition, fleets will be able to experience a revolutionary hydrogen-powered fuel-cell vehicle which will be available to drive, while experts will be on hand to explain the technology.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience a ‘playground of new technology’, which will provide fleets access to test the latest technologies, including collision avoidance and park assist.

Meanwhile, back on the track fleet decision-makers can look forward to driving the latest models at the UK’s leading arrive-and-drive event.

BMW will be showcasing the new 3 Series Gran Turismo and Mini Paceman models, as well as other cars in the BMW and Mini ranges.

CCIA will also offer many fleets the first opportunity to try out budget brand Dacia’s full range of vehicles in the UK.

Toyota and Lexus combined will offer models from 10 different hybrid ranges in its line-up, with the new Lexus IS300h making its UK debut at CCIA.

It will be joined by the Toyota Auris, which will be making its first appearance at CCIA alongside the Touring Sports estate version fresh from its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Ford models making their CCIA debuts in June include the Kuga, the new Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom. They will be joined by the revised Fiesta and the new B-Max.

Other CCIA debuts will include the Vauxhall Adam and Cascada, Volvo’s V60 Plug-in Hybrid, the Hyundai Santa-Fe and Renault Zoe.

But with hundreds of vehicles from 24 brands, including the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Peugeot, Alfa Romeo, Kia, Seat, Citroen, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Jeep, Jaguar and Land Rover, there will be no shortage of cars and vans to drive for the first time.

Fleet News will be putting on a free shuttle bus service for fleets attending CCIA 2013. The buses will transport fleet managers, as well as other other key fleet decision-makers, from Milton Keynes train station to Millbrook during the course of the two-day event on June 11 and 12.
