Mercedes-Benz will showcase its latest hi-tech saloon at Company Car In Action this month as well as a number of other models making their first appearances at the event.
Visitors will get the opportunity to drive the recently launched E-Class powered by Mercedes-Benz’s new 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, which produces 195hp in the E 220d.
It is coupled to a nine-speed automatic transmission and produces CO2 emissions of 102g/km in the SE variant, and 112g/km in the AMG Line.
The new E-Class will be available for driving on Millbrook’s routes alongside the recently launched GLC-Class SUV, revised versions of the A-Class and CLA-Class, and a number of new plug-in hybrid cars.
The C-Class, S-Class and GLE-Class will all be available in low-CO2 plug-in hybrid variants, with emissions tanging from 48-84g/km, depending on model. Mercedes-Benz will also have a fully-electric version of the B-Class MPV available for testing.
There will be high-performance models to test, including the C 63 S AMG, A 45 AMG, and the GT S coupé – the car used as the safety car at Formula 1 races.
Company Car In Action on June 14-15 is held at Millbrook Proving Ground, in Bedfordshire.
It offers fleet decision makers an unrivaled range of cars and vans to test back-to-back on a range of routes specifically designed for evaluating road cars.
Millbrook offers a range of routes that allow different aspects of vehicle performance to be checked.
The twisty hill route is ideal for appraising a car’s handling and responses, including acceleration, steering and braking; the high-speed bowl is designed to test motorway performance and comfort at speeds up to 100mph, especially noise intrusion; the city route is a low-speed course designed to assess a vehicle’s manoeuvrability; the off-road course is open to 4x4s, challenging their all-terrain ability.
