Cenex to offer free ‘EV Surgery’ at CCIA

Cenex - the UK’s first Centre of Excellence for low carbon technologies – will be running an Electric Vehicle Surgery for fleet decision-makers at Fleet News’ Company Car in Action (CCIA) event, on June 10 and 11, at Millbrook Proving Ground.

Throughout the free-to-attend two-day event, Cenex’s technical team will be on hand to offer free, personalised and impartial advice as to whether EVs can be deployed within a company’s fleet operations in the EV/Hybrid Zone at CCIA.

Attendees will be able to compare up to three vehicles within their personalised drive cycle using real world data and will receive a dashboard report of potential savings including CO2 reduction, running costs and tax savings, all calculated using real world drive cycle data.
“Gone are the days of the ‘diesel only’ policy,” says Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex. “The trend for vehicles to offer Plug-in capability is now well established and EVs are becoming a viable alternative to diesels for a range of fleet applications.

“We are excited to be offering fleet decision makers the opportunity to evaluate the viability of a range of low carbon vehicles within their fleet operations, allowing them to explore alternative vehicles that may be better suited to their operations.”

Supporting Cenex within the EV Zone will be Fleet Innovations, who will discuss their mileage capture system that collects driving duty data to better calculate a Fleet’s potential saving from EV use; and Arval, who will be able to undertake in-depth calculations of the total cost of ownership savings available from alternative fuelled vehicles.

Stephen Briers, editor-in-chief of Fleet News, said: “We are delighted that Cenex is running an Electric Vehicle Surgery at CCIA.

“Fleets are very interested in the possibilities offered by electric vehicles but there is still a lack understanding about how they can best be deployed on a fleet. Cenex will be able to offer the answers.”

As demand is expected to be high for the Electric Vehicle Surgery, attendees are encouraged to pre-book an appointment with the EV consultation team by calling 01509 635 750.

The EV/Hybrid Zone will also feature up to nine ultra-low emission vehicles, giving visitors the opportunity to put the plug-in vehicles through their paces.
