As the emissions tests scandal continues to hit the headlines, Tantalum Corporation is urging the fleet industry to take control of vehicle emissions by reviewing and changing driver behaviour.
“Although vehicle manufacturers need to be held accountable for ensuring that their vehicles meet efficiency and emission legislation, it won’t be long before fleet owners and drivers come under the same pressures,” said Cédriane de Boucaud, CEO of Tantalum Corporation.
“Drivers can make a big impact on emissions by altering the way they drive a vehicle, once it leaves the production line. Indeed, our own data has highlighted that using the right fleet vehicle, driven in the right way can reduce fuel consumption by 25%, at the same time reducing the Nitrate Oxide (NOx) exhaust emissions by multiple of 25%."
Tantalum Corporation has been analysing data from vehicles in real time through its range of telematics platforms, Tantalum Innovations and Tracker, to provide accurate and up to date analytics of fuel consumption related to driver behaviour. From this insight, a vehicle’s true emission footprint can be understood.
“The good news is fleet owners don’t need to rely on laboratory testing data to get accurate information” added Cédriane de Boucaud. “We have the technology to deliver real-life data for CO2 emissions and mpgs. We can take readings every minute, directly from the vehicles themselves, helping fleet owners tackle emissions in the wake of this crisis.”
