Volvo has committed a pair of its newest electric vehicles to the Ride-and-Drive event at the 2022 Global Fleet Conference.
Volvo plans to feature the C40 and XC40 all-electric vehicles, and representatives from the Swedish automaker will be on hand to answer any questions about Volvo's fleet offerings and its commitment to an electric future. What's more, Polestar—a Volvo-owned company—will feature a Polestar 2 electric vehicle. Now in its ninth year, the Global Fleet Conference is hosted by Bobit and Automotive Fleet magazine and features hundreds of fleet professionals from around the world. The annual event is a must-go for the fleet industry and features several opportunities to see, ride, and drive the latest fleet offerings from notable OEMs.
"We are extremely fortunate and proud to partner with Volvo once more at the conference," said Mike Antich, editor and associate publisher of Automotive Fleet magazine and familiar face to the global fleet industry.
"Electric vehicles (and the industry behind them) are one of the the primary megatrends of the 2020s, and we're looking forward to learning more about Volvo's offerings and getting a short glimpse into the automotive and electric future of our industry. The Ride-and-Drive event is a key part of the Global Fleet Conference and is an efficient means for fleet managers to get firsthand experience with some of the newest vehicles in the fleet segment, " he continued.
The vehicles will be on static display for several hours on June 7 for walkarounds and Q&As with Volvo representatives. The Ride-and-Drive is scheduled for the following day, June 8, where fleet managers and industry professionals will get to experience the vehicles firsthand as part of the conference.
