VWFS telematics analysis tool will determine best fuel type

Fleet news logo

Volkswagen Financial Services (VWFS) Fleet is launching a telematics analysis tool to help fleet managers decide on the best fuel type for their fleet. 

The Future Fleet Analysis tool takes data from a company’s Telematics system and analyses the driving data of each individual vehicle.

The tool will then advise which vehicles could be suitable for a switch to electric or plug-in hybrid technology, as well as which are best suited to petrol or diesel fuel and what potential fuel savings could be made by making such changes.

VWFS says this allows fleet decision makers to quickly identify and start to make fuel choice decisions across a number of vehicles in seconds.

Tom Brewer, head of sales and marketing at VWFS Fleet, said:“More and more companies are investigating the possibility of adding ultra-low emission vehicles to their fleets, but it’s often complicated and time-consuming to determine which vehicles are appropriate.

"We wanted to create this tool, for customers and the wider fleet industry, so fleet operators can showcase how many drivers are good candidates for EV.

"As a multi-marque leasing company, we’re well placed to tailor the solutions we offer our customers to deliver the best fit. This tool is the first part of the offering which we’re developing to help the industry take advantage of the opportunity EV presents.”
