NEW CARS MAKE DRIVING DEBUTS AT SILVERSTONE FLEET SHOWCompany press release.
Some of the very latest new car launches, including Vauxhall's sub-compact Mokka SUV and its chic new urban car ADAM, will be available for test driving for the first time at Fleet World's Fleet Show at Silverstone this April.
The new Vauxhall duo will join two new models from Citroën, the stunning new DS3 Cabrio and the more pragmatic Electric Berlingo, in being available for driving on the world famous Silverstone Grand Prix and Stowe circuits and on test drive routes in the surrounding countryside.
The new vehicles form just part of a 200-model line-up from 21 manufacturers that will provide fleet decision makers with an excellent opportunity to properly assess their capabilities for their fleets.
However, test driving is just one element of the Fleet World Fleet Show, which takes place on Wednesday, 24th April and also offers an indoor exhibition area in the state-of-the-art Silverstone Wing conference centre.
This will play host to exhibits from a number of leading fleet service suppliers and providers as well as providing the venue for this year's extensive fleet seminar programme.
Sponsored by ARI Fleet UK, the programme includes presentations from Paul Nieuwenhuis, director of the Centre for Automotive Industry Research at Cardiff Business School, who will report back on the key findings of the ENEVATE (European Network of Electric Vehicles and Transferring Expertise) project.
Other speakers include Rob Anderson of CENEX, the Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies, Professor Kevin Kendall from the University of Birmingham's Centre for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research, and Michael Baker, Chief Engineer, ITS and Connected Services, at global automotive consultancy Ricardo.
For the second year running, Venson Automotive Solutions will be hosting a 'Question Time' style panel discussion session where delegates will be able to question a panel of specially selected guests on a wide range of fleet topics.

At the same time, the final of the Fleet Driver of the Year competition, organised by ALD Automotive in conjunction with Peak Performance and Toyota & Lexus Fleet Services, will be held live at the Show.
Event organiser and managing editor of Fleet World, Ross Durkin, commented: 'Offering an unprecedented opportunity to get behind the steering wheels of the latest new launches, such as the Vauxhall Mokka and Citroën DS3 Cabrio, the Fleet World Fleet Show really is an unmissable event.'
And the culmination of the conference programme will be a Fleet & Mobility Workshop, chaired by Nigel Trotman, Head of Strategic Consultancy at international leasing company, Alphabet.
