BMW will showcase two brand new electric models – the iX1 SUV and i7 luxury saloon - at Fleet & Mobility Live, this year. The new BMW 230e Active Tourer plug-in hybrid will be on display.
Steve Roberts, general manager, Corporate Sales at BMW Group UK, along with Brian Cox, national corporate sales manager will be at the event with the brand’s key account team.
The key focus for the BMW team will be discussing electrification with customers and prospects. With new-generation electrified products arriving now and in the months ahead, the team will be keen to highlight BMW Group’s electrified offering, which features improved electric range and charge times, lower BiK bandings on PHEV vehicles and will also highlight the expanding charging network.
Roberts said: “We look forward to meeting our fleet customers and prospects at Fleet & Mobility Live this October. At this time of rapid change in the industry, we see unprecedented interest in our growing electrified portfolio and we are delighted to be showcasing our latest models over the two days. BMW 7 Series, our new flagship, will be a highlight of our activation this year ahead of its market launch at the end of 2022."
Ford will showcase the new E-Transit at Fleet & Mobility Live, this year, alongside its Mustang Mach-E electric car. The brand’s new electric van can satisfy a wide range of customer use-cases, with a 68kWh usable battery capacity as standard, providing a range of up to 197 miles (WLTP).
Mandy Dean, Ford of Britain commercial vehicle director, said: “Electrification is the key consideration for all our fleet customers and we are delighted to demonstrate our van and car battery electric vehicles to them at this year’s Fleet & Mobility Live. Supporting fleets’ Ford electric van ownership is the Ford Pro offering on charging, data, service and finance. Smart electric van operators can use E-Transit and E-Transit Custom to improve the productivity of their businesses – enabled by Ford Pro services. Ford has committed to offer zero-emission versions of all its car and vans by 2026. We’re on hand to assist fleet managers in the transition and to make the most of associated wholelife cost benefits.”
Genesis will be showcasing its electrified products to visitors at Fleet and Mobility Live this year. Having launched the brand, as well as seven petrol and diesel products last year, 2022 sees the start of the electrification journey for the Korean premium brand with three new Genesis electric vehicles coming to the UK market.
“We are looking forward to Fleet and Mobility Live and demonstrating how Genesis corporate customers get the best of both worlds,” said Jonny Miller, head of sales at Genesis Motor UK. “We have a direct internal point of contact with the company running the fleet. This Genesis Corporate Manager is the conduit for strategic ordering and management of their fleet, ensuring a strong working relationship. And when it comes to the driver, Genesis operates a direct to customer business model – essentially giving the fleet operator a double point of contact – and has done since the brand launched last year, running a five-star experience that respects our customers time unlike any other car brand.”
Mazda will be displaying the all-new Mazda CX-60 PHEV, which has joined Mazda’s award-winning SUV range above the ever-popular 2022 Mazda CX-5.
Mazda UK head of fleet, Steve Tomlinson, said: “I can’t wait for our fleet customers to experience the CX-60 and Mazda is excited to be able to attend this year’s Fleet & Mobility Live in order to showcase the all-new Mazda CX-60 PHEV. With Co2 emissions of just 33g/km, an EV range of 39.1 miles and attractive P11D values, this exciting addition to the Mazda range is bound to prove popular with company car drivers and so bringing the car to this event will hopefully drive the awareness that this car deserves.”
MG will debut its all new MG4 electric hatchback and its facelifted MG5 in front of a fleet audience for the first time at Fleet & Mobility Live.
Initially available with battery capacities from 51kWh to 64kWh, the MG4 EV Standard Range will be capable of 218 miles range on the WLTP cycle – with Long Range SE and Trophy Models capable of 281 miles and 270 miles respectively.
The 64kWh battery is also capable of charging up to 135kW, meaning a charge time of only 35 minutes from 10% - 80% using a 150kW DC rapid charger. The Modular Scalable Platform (MSP) integrates batteries into the chassis and can be scaled to suit different applications.
Geraint Isaac, MG head of fleet sales, said: “While we’ve experienced significant growth in fleet over the last three years, we are still a relatively new manufacturer. We have a strong brand awareness, but our product offering is still not widely known. It is vitally important that we showcase our most suitable products in an environment that all potential fleet customers can experience. My team and I will be present at the show to answer questions and meet with attendees - that’s how important we feel this event is.”
