The Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle event (LCV2017), held at Millbrook on 6-7 September 2017, is the tenth LCV event, and will feature a number of highlights.
On day one, Ariel will unveil what it believes to be the fastest-accelerating and most advanced supercar in history, a 1200bhp, four-wheel-drive electric two-seater with a revolutionary turbine range-extender powertrain.
UK-based electric vehicle start-up, Detroit Electric, will outline its future product plans during its first ever appearance at LCV. The brand will share its plans to launch a range of pure electric passenger vehicles in the coming years, a strategy that has been enabled following a recent injection of US$1.8 billion in capital from a joint venture agreement.
The Niche Vehicle Network stand will showcase a Rage Buggy with an innovative low emission powertrain developed by Oaktec.
The Electric Nation project is due to announce its initial findings on the first day of the event, which will show that smart charging can provide a key solution to the challenge of the demand from increasing numbers of electric vehicles (EVs) on electricity networks.
The Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) will launch its new ‘Automotive Business Opportunities’ service, supporting businesses to take commercial advantage of the current and future changes in the automotive industry.
The LowCVP (supported by Scania, Magtec, Arcola and OGE) is hosting the ‘Low Emission Truckstop’ to highlight how trucks and vans are now available in gas, hybrid, hydrogen and electric as well as renewable diesel. The Truckstop will demonstrate LowCVP’s HGV Accreditation Scheme, which is enabling equipment manufacturers or vehicle operators to conduct robust, repeatable and reliable tests to validate the impact on fuel consumption and emissions under a range of operating conditions.
For the second year running, LCV will be showcasing a selection of the latest zero-emission solutions from the UK bus market. In partnership with the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and its Bus Group members, LCV2017 will give visitors the chance to ride in four battery-electric buses provided by Magtec and Optare.
LCV2017 is set to attract over 3,000 delegates, and comprises of a comprehensive seminar programme, a technology exhibition with broad B2B focus, and networking activities.
There is also a Ride & Drive in a test track environment, with the opportunity to drive a number of exhibitors’ vehicles on Millbrook’s tracks, including the high-speed circuit, city course and hill route.
