EU Fleet managers need to take a pro-active approach to vehicle selection following the introduction of the new Worldwide Harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) or face escalating fleet costs.
That’s the warning from FleetVision, the fleet and mobility consultancy arm within TÜV SÜD Group, which says that fleets could face additional costs of several hundreds of Euros per vehicle per year if they do not make the right vehicle selections now within their fleet choice lists.

Cloud and mobility solutions have converged with the on-demand economy to fuel an increase in people that drive for work, while serving other roles for their business – the food delivery driver, the regional store manager, the repair specialist, to name a few. All of these different mobile employees have unique needs that their businesses must be able to support.
Vehicle programs, meanwhile, have been slow to catch up to the new dynamic. A one-size-fits-all program is no longer the soundest approach. Despite there being several different types of mobile workers serving several different roles within a single organization, most businesses will approach those mobile workers with a single, standardized vehicle program. This approach may seem easier. In reality, it’s a disservice to your business. That extends from costs, to your mobile workers’ functionality and productivity.
So how do you determine what type of vehicle program is the best fit for your mobile workers and your business? One key consideration: mileage.

Around the world, a new study asked 13 variations on the trolley morality problem, involving self-driving cars and combinations of victims young and old, rich and poor, and rule followers or breakers, among others.
Carmakers are global, so they will need to use the findings at the very least to adapt how they sell their increasingly autonomous cars, if not how the cars actually operate.
