Vans to vie for attention at NEC’s CV Show 2011 18 March 2011

Light commercial vehicles from Ashwoods Automotive, Citroën, Fiat, Ford, Hyundai, Isuzu, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Smith Electric, Supertrucks, Tata and Volkswagen will all be on show at April's CV Show.

There will be a CV Show debut for Ashwood's hybrid drive system, a retrofit option that can cut fuel use and emissions by 15 to 20% and pay for itself in as little as three years.

Among the vehicles being lined up for their show debuts are Citroën's Nemo light van, Ford Ranger, Mercedes-Benz Vito E-Cell, a crew-cab electric van from Smiths, and the Amarok pickup.

As well as the vans, there will be a huge range of supporting products and services on show, from Ratcliff Palfinger's new range of light van tail lifts to spray-on linings for vans and pick-ups from Linex and an all-makes van parts range from Multipart.

Polybilt will also show plastic bodies whose 20% weight saving is helping the firm break into the weight-conscious supermarket home delivery van market, while Eminox will take bookings for its LEZ clinics, where it will help van operators to plan for the next and toughest yet round of London Low Emission Zone restrictions.
