With all the current media focus on the notorious cash-for-crash scams around the country, it’s no wonder the product gained so much popularity at the show, which took place at the NEC in Birmingham.
With transport managers very concerned about fraudsters, they recognised we had much to offer in terms of vehicle protection – and our collection of mobile digital video recorders were one of the show’s hot topics.
James Newhill, Sales Manager at Vision Techniques, said: “The show was a complete success. We had a couple of purchases on the spot and more than 20 appointments to meet Transport Managers who are concerned about their fleet’s safety.”
As always, the CV Show had a whole host of new vehicle innovations from some of the top car manufacturers.
Michael Kamper, of Mercedes, said: “It’s been really busy. People have made quite an effort in coming back.”
Ford had the spotlight with the unveiling of its Transit Courier, which enabled it to display its full new line up of LCVs for the first time.
Citroen also debuted its new Electric Berlingo prior to its on sale date in the summer. Using a domestic socket the van can be charged in eight and a half hours or it can be charged to 80% of capacity in 35 minutes with a specific 380V three-phase terminal in quick-charge mode.
The secretary of state for transport, Patrick McLoughlin, also showed up, saying that electric vehicles are important for the UK, but more charging points are needed.
