Company Car in Action logo

Volvo has committed to become a fully electric car company by 2030, therefore the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric will be a key model at CCIA, alongside a range of Volvo mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

The free-to-attend event takes place at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire on June 23 and 24.

Spaces are still available, so sign up now before it’s too late.

Andy Dinham, campaign manager – business sales at Volvo Cars UK said: “The 2030 ambition represents an acceleration of Volvo Cars’ electrification strategy, driven by strong demand for its electrified cars in recent years.”

Volvo’s sister company Polestar will also be at CCIA, making its debut at the event with a fleet of Polestar 2 electric cars.

The Swedish performance electric car brand will be offering visitors the chance to drive the new model, which is now available with a range of battery and powertrain choices.

Rival electric car brand Tesla will make a return to CCIA this year, showcasing its Model 3 saloon to fleet decision makers.

With a combination of powertrain efficiency, aerodynamics and chassis technology, Tesla says the Model 3 can deliver the longest range of any comparable electric saloon.

The brand’s entire corporate sales team will be in attendance at the event to answer any questions about its line-up of electric cars and to discuss how Tesla can support your fleet.

This year'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.

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.

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

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.

Company Car In Action and the Fleet News Awards Summer Garden Party will be going ahead as planned, despite the delay to Step 4 announced by the Government in its easing of the coronavirus lockdown measures.
