The steering pad at CCIA 2019

Electrification will be a major theme at this year’s Company Car in Action, with a wide range of alternative fuel cars on display and available to drive.

The EV Question Time, taking place in the CCIA knowledge hub, will look at how and why you should add electric vehicles to your fleet, assessing the potential pitfalls, the challenges to overcome and busting the myths and perceptions around charging, infrastructure and range requirements.

It takes place on June 12 at 2pm.

The expanded Zero and Ultra-Low Emission Zone will showcase a selection of the latest models to feature electrified technology, from the Honda CR-V Hybrid to the fully electric Jaguar I-Pace, Kia e-Niro and Renault Zoe. There will also be plug-in hybrids, including the BMW 330e, Volvo XC60 T8 and Toyota Prius. Experts will be on stand to answer any questions about the vehicles or charging them.

Out in the test track, visitors will be able to get behind the wheel of the new Jaguar I-Pace, Kia e-Niro and Renault Zoe, for a real-life experience of a fully-electric car.

There will be a large number of plug-in hybrid vehicles, such as the new Mercedes E 300 de, which is the only diesel plug-in hybrid currently on sale, alongside the petrol-powered E 300 e and the S 560 e.

BMW will have the i3, i8 and 225Xe plug-in vehicles plus the Mini Countryman PHEV. At the Porsche stand there will be hybrid versions of the Cayenne and Panamera.

Land Rover will have plug-in hybrid versions of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, plus Volvo will have its full range of Twin Engine T8 models.

Toyota and Lexus will have a large range of hybrid models to test, including the new Camry and Corolla plus the hydrogen-powered Mirai.

CCIA takes place on June 12-13 at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.

It’s free to attend and provides fleet decision makers with the unique opportunity to test drive more than 300 new models from the biggest players in fleet.
