Representatives from across the Sandicliffe Motor Contracts team were in attendance and headed to the NEC for Fleet Live 2018.

With a record-breaking attendance on the first day, Fleet Live showcased an event that offers decision makers from fleet the chance to speak to experts and peers about how they are preparing for the future.

The event was free-to-attend and offered visitors the opportunity to take part in best practice workshops which will be delivered with an unparalleled level of knowledge and insight.

The exhibition featured:

  • 25+ expert speakers discussing the most pressing issues
  • 5 distinct theatres split into ‘Strategy’, ‘Operations’ and ‘Discovery Fleet’ seminars
  • The Future Zone featuring mobility, technology and low & zero-emission hubs
  • The Advice Centre
  • 120+ exhibitors


Attendees had the privilege of seeing the all-new BMW 3 Series which was on display at the two-day event.

The key fleet model, now in its seventh generation, is expected to provide the highest levels of efficiency and driver engagement in its segment.

It weighs up to 55Kg less than the outgoing model, making it more economical and better to drive. A longer wheelbase provides greater interior space.

The full engine line up is yet to be confirmed but BMW has published fuel economy data for the 320d, which can achieve an attractive 67.3mpg.

CO2 emissions start from 110g/km for the diesel, giving the new 3 series an edge over its rivals. There will also be a 330e plug-in hybrid, which is likely to emit less than 50g/km making it an attractive proposition for company car choice and BIK.
