Vauxhall hopes for sunshine at CCIA to show off its new convertible

The Adam city car and four-seat convertible Cascada will make their Company Car in Action debuts at this year’s event.

Set to attract up to 1,000 fleet decision-makers, the two-day event from 10-11 June will also play host to Vauxhall’s popular Ecoflex models, the electric Ampera and the Fleet News Award winner for Best Full-Size People Carrier Zafira Tourer with 119g/km for the Tech Line 2.0CDTi 16v Ecoflex (130PS) start/stop manual version.

Vauxhall is hoping for glorious weather in order that attendees can experience the new full size, four-seat, fabric-roof Cascada convertible, priced from £23,995, with its top down when it takes to the track at Millbrook Proving Ground.

The first full-sized convertible designed, engineered and manufactured by Vauxhall since the 1930s, the all-year round Cascada’s hood can be opened in just 17 seconds, at speeds up to 30mph by an interior switch, or via a button on the key fob. Cascada’s roof is aerodynamically clean and refined and disappears completely below a high quality tonneau cover when lowered.

Priced from £11,255 the Adam is the new urban-chic small car from Vauxhall with a staggering one million plus trim and specification variations. Three petrol engines can be specified with an Ecoflex technology pack that further enhances their efficiency. The Adam 1.2 Ecoflex has fuel consumption of 56.5mpg with CO2 emissions of 118 g/km while both 1.4 Ecoflex models consume 55.4mpg and have emissions of 119 g/km.

The first extended-range vehicle in the UK, Vauxhall’s Ampera E-REV, offering emission-free driving with a range-extender generator enabling the driver to cover an impressive 360 miles, will also be available to drive at CCIA.  Priced from £29,995 (inclusive of the £5,000 government plug-in car grant), Ampera attracts zero VED, benefits from London congestion charge exemption and company car drivers enjoy Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) tax of just five per cent.

Fleet News Best Full-Size People Carrier award winner, the seven-seater Zafira Tourer MPV, will also be available to drive.
