Commercial Motor Live: more manufacturers confirm their test fleets

Daf, Mercedes-Benz, Isuzu, Gulliver's and Fiat Professional have all confirmed the fleet of vehicles they will have available for testing at Commercial Motor Live 2013.

The event, now in it's second year, is taking place at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedford, and visitors will have the opportunity to ride and drive the latest vehicles on the facility's test tracks.

Daf will have four new XF tractors, all 4x2 at 40 tonnes, with a mix of power ratings and cab types.

Mercedes-Benz will have 10 Euro-6 trucks, representing its complete line-up, available for testing. For on-road testing, there will be a trio of Atego rigids, a pair of Antos units, a pair of New Actros tractors and a Fuso Canter hybrid. In the Tipper Zone, Mercedes-Benz will also have two Arocs tippers for trial on Millbrook's off-road course.

Gulliver's Truck Hire will also have an Actros available for test.

Isuzu Truck (UK) will offer operators the best of both worlds, lining up a pair of Euro-5 and a pair of Euro-6 Forward rigids.

Finally, Fiat Professional will provide four vans to ride and drives.

Volvo confirmed its ride and drive fleet recently.

Commercial Motor Live takes place on 2-3 October. As well as the ride and drives, the event features both an indoor and outdoor exhibition, including the Quiet Delivery Depot, and a series of operations-focused seminars.
