Sofico has added WLTP functionality to its Miles solution in collaboration with Jato Dynamics.
Jato’s WLTP hub will now be available through Miles as plug-and-play functionality. This will allow Miles users to download the new CO2 values of the latest vehicles under the new emissions testing regime.
The Jato WLTP hub provides the CO2 values under WLTP for all models from 22 of the 30 major European automotive brands, including all optional items of specification which can affect the CO2 values.
Olivier Peijs, country manager for Jato Netherlands, said: “WLTP is the most significant change to hit the European automotive industry in the last 30 years and is completely changing the way data is used and how we make offers to our customers.
“We have worked very closely with Sofico, who have been at the forefront of discussions around WLTP and how to best provide their customers with the CO2 values under the new testing regime.”
Peijs added: “As we rapidly move towards a position where WLTP figures will be the base for all leasing calculations, we urge all manufactures to release their WLTP values and calculators to us.
“The world’s largest and smallest leasing companies rely on Jato to deliver the correct configuration data and calculated values. This will enable our mutual customers to prepare properly, meaning that WLTP does not have to have a disruptive effect.”
Gémar Hompes (pictured), Sofico managing director, said: “We have worked very closely with the Jato team to develop a new interface between Miles and their WLTP hub. As a result, our customers can already prepare for the impact of the new testing regime during the transition period, which for many countries extends until 2020.
“We are always looking to develop Miles further to ensure that it evolves with the latest market developments and fully supports our customers’ changing business needs. It is very important to us that we are able to offer this WLTP functionality now, keeping our customers ahead of the curve during the transition period for WLTP.”
