Last September 26, NAFA’s Ontario Chapter held its annual Ride and Drive event, and the BDS team couldn’t miss this important event, held at the Paramount Fine Food’s Center in Mississauga.

During the activity, trucks, vans, cars, and different special vehicles were exhibited, which attracted the attention of the more than 300 attendees who were at the event.

Imran Mohammed, head of Business Development at BDS Fleet Service, emphasized the importance of attending these events as a business enhancer, allowing guests to connect with different industry professionals and preview new vehicles and trends for the next year.

The most anticipated vehicles were, without a doubt, the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van that can now be ordered in a gas or diesel version; the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer sports car that stands out for its advanced security technologies; the Subaru Outback offering a new platform and more space in the cabin and cargo; the amazing Jeep / Truck FCA Gladiator and the Ford Super Duty 2020 that offers a towing capacity of 37,000 pounds for its diesel engine and a series of new driver assistance features.

To close, in the best way, the attendees had the opportunity to meet Mr. Jon Grant from NAFA, who was recently appointed as President of the Ontario Chapter and is the current National Manager of the G4S Canada fleet, a valuable contact for everyone involved in the industry.

We share some photos of the event.
