Ford aiming for Company Car in Action success

Ford is hoping for fantastic success in this year’s instalment of Company Car in Action, an event which sees models from a host of manufacturers tested against each other on a host of parameters.

The event will be taking place at Millbrook Proving Ground on 16 & 17 June, and as well as all the top cars available from the blue oval, new vans from Ford which are set to be tested include the Transit Courier, Transit Connect and the Ranger Double Cab. The results of the tests are sure to be kept a close eye on by those on a hunt for brand new Ford cars and vans this year.

Millbrook Proving Ground offers the best possible location to test general and commercial vehicles, with four purpose-built test routes for drivers to put the models through their paces. The courses are city, off-road, alpine hill course and high speed bowl.

Celebrating 25th Year

Now into its 25th year, Company Car in Action is the biggest arrive and drive event in the UK and is considered the must-attend event on the fleet car calendar. This year there will be four in-depth industry debates for attendees to get involved with, the topics of which include: running a low emissions fleet, safety and duty of care, running an efficient fleet in the public sector and the end of contract.

When speaking about the event, Ford Motor Company director of fleet operations Nick Themistocleous said: “We were proud participants in Company Car in Action in 2014 and look forward to meeting you at CCIA in 2015 to demonstrate why our range of cars and vans won a total of 53 awards in 2014 and why Ford was voted Best Volume Manufacturer and Best Light Commercial Vehicle Supplier by the Fleet200 members.”
