Company Car and Van Magazine

 

As well as the online resource for SME’s, companycarandvan.co.uk we also publish a bi monthly 76 page magazine entitled Company Car & Van, which contains up to date news on new car & commercial vehicle launches that are relevant to the SME fleet market.

As the year comes to an end, we award our Car & Van of the year prizes on page 4.

Elsewhere, the rise of the Compact SUV or B-SUV sees no signs of decline. In this issue we take the covers off Jaguars latest, the E-Pace which adds another string to the successful bow of JLR.
