VWFS tool guides fleets on fuel choice decisions

Volkswagen Financial Services | Fleet has launched a new tool to help companies, including non-VWFS customers, determine if individual vehicles can be shifted to ultra-low emission choices.

The tool is aimed at both VWFS customers and wider fleets

The multi-marque Future Fleet Analysis tool takes data from the fleet’s own telematics system to analyse the driving data for each vehicle. It will then advise if the vehicle can be switched to an electric or PHEV or if it’s best suited to petrol or diesel. It will also calculate the potential fuel savings for any changes.

In the case of VWFS customers using the VWFS | Fleet Telematics system, data can be uploaded direct.

Tom Brewer, head of sales and marketing at VWFS | Fleet, commented: “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.”
