Fleet news logo

This month's Company Car in Action (CCIA) will offer the largest collection of pure electric and plug-in vehicles for fleet decision-makers and influencers to test.

Visitors can put more than 150 BEVs and PHEVs through their paces at CCIA 21, taking place at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire on June 23 and 24.

Models available include Volvo’s XC40 Recharge, the Polestar 2 and the Porsche Taycan – see a full list of what’s confirmed for the show so far.

Don't delay in booking your place to attend the fleet industry's biggest multi-brand 'drive and decide' event.

Once booked, you will received an email from Licence Bureau on behalf of Company Car In Action asking for your consent to carry out a mandatory licence check with the DVLA ahead of the show. Please complete the form in order to secure your driving opportunities at CCIA.

New electric and hybrid models are expected to dominate the show which Fleet News is calling ‘the rebirth of the company car’.

The venue offers an extensive testing ground – from the high-speed bowl where you can test the vehicles at motorway speeds, to the ‘city route’, which provides the ideal setting to try out low speed manoeuvrability and driver assistance systems.

After a year of delays and uncertainty, this is your opportunity to make important decisions about which electric brands and models are right for your fleet.

Scroll down to see which manufacturers have already signed up to attend the show.

There will also be informative seminars covering salary sacrifice and grey fleet management over the two days.

Attend with confidence 

The mostly outdoor event will take place in line with the latest Government guidance. The team behind the event have worked alongside AEO (Association of Event Organisers) to develop the All Secure Standard, an industry wide  benchmark for the safe return of organised events so you can attend with confidence.
