One week left to register for CCIA

Fleet decision makers have just seven more days to sign up to the year's most informative and useful ride and drive event.

Company Car in Action (CCIA) is shaping up to be the biggest event in its history as well as the most informative and useful fleet driving event of the year.

It opens its doors on Tuesday, June 11, at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedfordshire. CCIA will play a significant role in providing fleets with the information they need to decide their future manufacturer partners, including exclusive first drives, new launches and unrivalled access to all the key cars, from the most efficient diesels to electric and hydrogen.

It will be the first opportunity for fleets to drive the new Lexus IS 300h in the UK, as well as the Renault Captur, Toyota Auris Hybrid Touring Sports and Toyota Proace van.

As well as driving cars on four unique types of route on a purpose-built test track, there will be a number of informative displays and services available in the exhibition hall.

CCIA will explore the future of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles or FCEVs with a dedicated Hydrogen Experience area.

CCIA will also host a ‘Question Time’ style debate with a number of experts both in the development of FCEVs, which only have water as a by-product, and an infrastructure network.

With input from hydrogen fuel pioneers Coventry University and the University of Birmingham, the Hydrogen Experience includes Microcab, developers of an H2EV hydrogen fuel-cell compact cab which will be available to drive.

Fleet News is hosting the Great Grey Fleet Debate to provide some much-needed clarity on the grey fleet issue. The debate aims to throw more light on the subject as well as highlighting ways in which the area can be tackled, whatever the number of private vehicles your company may utilise.

With it estimated that there are more than 4 million grey fleet cars on the road in the UK, fleet managers can no longer afford to ignore the financial, environmental and health and safety implications of running a grey fleet.

The debate, which will include Fleet News Awards finalists Tristan Campbell, fleet advisor at Chivas Brothers; Adam Davies, fleet team leader at Wiltshire Council; and Gareth Roberts, fleet manager at Countryside Council for Wales as well as legal experts and a view from the fleet industry, will take place at 2.15pm on June 11.
