Test-drive latest electric vans at ITT Hub Ride & Drive

ITT Hub has announced details of its Ride & Drive line-up for next week, providing the chance to drive vehicles from 14 manufacturers.

14 vehicle manufacturers will offer visitors the  chance to try out vehicles, including electric vans and trucks

The new industry-led event, which is free to attend and takes place on 30 June and 1 July 2021 at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, will offer the chance to drive latest vehicles, including electric vans. Manufacturers present include Ford, Harris-Maxus, Mercedes-Benz, Iveco, Fiat Professional, Renault Trucks and DAF Trucks, among others.

New vehicles from Volta Trucks and Fiat Professional will also make their UK debuts at the show.

Visitors will also have the chance to test ride electric scooters and motorbikes designed for couriers and meal deliveries, as well as last-mile electric cargo trikes and a fully autonomous passenger ‘pod’, within the Last-Mile Electric Hub.

Said to be the largest show of its kind in the past 40 years, ITT Hub will also host Logistics UK’s Future Logistics Conference, which will be headlined by British astronaut Major Tim Peake, and will include a dedicated discussion on the future of vans.

The event will also follow strict Covid-19 safety guidelines, providing peace of mind for visitors.

Kevin Green, marketing & communications director at Logistics UK, said: “It is an exciting time for industry, with decarbonisation and evolving technologies set to play a key role in the future of logistics. ITT Hub and the Future Logistics Conference is a fantastic opportunity to bring industry together to trial these emerging technologies and discuss the ideas set to revolutionise the transport and logistics sectors in the coming years.”

Visitors wanting to take part in test-drives will need to pre-arrange them with the exhibitor at the event and have their driving licence checked and approved at the Licence Bureau stand on site. Drug and alcohol safety experts from AlcoDigital will provide testing services for the Ride & Drive test facility, using its range of testing products to deliver quick and reliable results.

Pre-registration is required for all attendees. For more information, and to book your free place to the exhibition and conference, please visit www.itthub.co.uk.
