Mercedes-Benz was named Fleet Manufacturer of the Year at the prestigious awards in February, recognising not only its broad, fleet-friendly model range but also full support behind the scenes. Hot on the heels of the all-new A-Class, it will introduce diesel plug-in hybrid versions of the C-Class and E-Class later this year, while adding innovative services such as built-in telematics for fleets, and a new-generation infotainment system including smartphone-based car sharing.

Most Improved Manufacturer, Seat, joins the Fleet Show following a record 2017; it’s one of the fastest-growing brands in the UK, with a 49.4% improvement in true fleet registrations and 18.3% growth overall, to 56,200 units.

Top-sellers, the Ateca SUV and Leon will be available to test, alongside the new Ibiza hatch and Arona compact SUV, while the carmaker will be offering virtual reality experiences on its stand with global partner Samsung. Seat will have its entire national sales team on-site, including the national fleet sales manager and head of fleet, with the ability to book from its expanding four-day test-drive programme on the day.

A wealth of other carmakers and vehicles will also be at this year’s Fleet Show to a superb range of safe, queue-free track driving opportunities across a range of circuits at the world-renowned Silverstone venue.
