GreenFleet’s Arrive ‘n’ Drive, 27 September

On 27 September, GreenFleet Arrive ‘n’ Drive will be setting up at Rockingham Motor Speedway. The event will showcase the latest in zero and ultra-low emission vehicles and alternatively-fuelled trucks, supporting fleets in their switch to greener operations

On 27 September, Rockingham Motor Speedway is set to host GreenFleet Arrive’n’Drive, showcasing the latest in ultra‑low emission vehicles and technology.
     
The event, powered by Centrica, is aimed to help organisations that are concerned with excessive fuel and running costs and to encourage fleets to adopt zero and ultra-low emission vehicles.
    
Fleet managers and professionals, as well as those responsible for their organisation’s environmental and sustainability plans, will be able to test drive a range of vehicles around Rockingham’s iconic race track.
    
In addition, there will be experts available to share advice on topics such as ultra‑low emission vehicles, alternative fuels, leasing, financing, EV recharging, telematics and much more.

Workshops

The event will also include a selection of workshops, addressing green fleet management issues, such as clean commercial vehicles and air quality measures.
    
Mike Foster, CEO of the Energy and Utilities Alliance, will be speaking about how gas can be a good alternative fuel choice for fleet operators.
Jonathan Tudor from Centrica Innovations will be leading the Electric Vehicle Recharging & Infrastructure Workshop, discussing the current challenges and solutions of charging an electric vehicle.
    
Other speakers will be confirmed shortly, please keep an eye on the website.

Forecourt EV Charging

The Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill introduced in the Queen’s speech earlier this year makes it mandatory for motorway services and large fuel forecourts to install EV charge points. Transport Minister John Hayes has now confirmed the government’s plans to increase the size of UK’s charging infrastructure.
    
The charging stations will all have to feature ‘smart’ chargers that enable them to communicate with the wider grid to manage electricity demand across the country. The bill also requires charging points to be convenient to access, work seamlessly across the UK and adhere to the same operational standards
    
This years’ Arrive’n’Drive sees leading UK publisher, William Reed Business Media, join us in a partnership designed to educate the UK’s largest independent fuel forecourt owners in the very latest in EVs and charging technology.
    
Their morning conference will deliver keynotes on the Bill, its implications and also suggest what actions need to be taken. The afternoon will see them join the event to participate in test drives and charging demonstrations.

Exhibitors include Jordon Group, Spar, Tokheim (P&C), Christie & Co, and Clarke Construction.

The vehicles

The Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid will no doubt be a test-track sell out. Its three-litre V6 engine combines with an electric engine to generate power of 462 hp and accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 5.0 seconds for a thrilling ride. CO2 emissions meanwhile are 72-78g/km.  
    
Showcasing its progress towards an electrified future, Volvo will be bringing a selection of vehicles to Arrive ‘n’ Drive. Volvo was the first carmaker to commit to a hybrid or full electric powertrain from 2019 and also aims to have 50 per cent of its car sales to be fully electric by 2025.
    
BMW, which has an impressive range of plug-in vehicles, will be in attendance on the day, as will MINI.
    
Visitors will also be able to get behind the wheels of the latest Toyota, Lexus and Ford hybrids.
    
Iveco, which has sustainability at the core of its vehicles, will be bringing its natural-gas powered Stralis truck and Daily electric van for delegates to test.
    
The DAF Range, comprising the LF, CF and XF Series, will also be present, with representatives demonstrating how its trucks can run on GTL (Gas to liquid) and HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil).
    
Meanwhile, Green-Mopeds will have its own track for visitors to test-drive electric scooters.
