How To Get The Best Out Of In-Car Technology

How To Get The Best Out Of In-Car Technology

Over the years our cars and vans have become so much more than vehicles for simply getting us from A to B. From air-con and satellite navigation, to massaging seats and 3D surround sound systems, the 21st century automobile is nothing less than a mobile office, games, and living room in one. Inevitably, this leaves us with a multitude of options and features to decipher between when trying to pick the right car for your company fleet. In this brief guide, we’re going to take a closer look at three of the most popular features found among mid-range... Read full article

Pollutions Exchange

Have you driven an electric car? I have. Tesla gave me the opportunity last year to get behind the wheel of a Model S. They said it would put a smile on my face and it did. The acceleration, speed and deceleration make you feel euphoric. Have you looked at the BIK advantages of driving a sports hybrid? Porsche sales of Cayenne S E Hybrid look good, creating a twelve month lead time on delivery. Mitsubishi delight in how popular a fleet proposition the Outlander PHEV has become. Government policy certainly seems to support the proposition that driving electric equals... Read full article

What Will The Next Generation Of Company Cars Look Like?

What Will The Next Generation Of Company Cars Look Like?

A car is no longer solely a vehicle for getting from A to B. This can be a shock for many people who are still driving around in cars built in the ‘90s. Cruise control, touch screen technology, satellite navigation; waking up to the reality of car technology in 2016 can be a real eye-opener. But with the exponential growth of technology and the recent breakthroughs in automation, fuel, and safety, the company cars of tomorrow are going to be ever more surprising. Let’s find out why by taking a closer look at what the next generation of company... Read full article

How Does Company Car Tech Boost Business Performance?

How Does Company Car Tech Boost Business Performance?

There are some obvious benefits that having reliable company cars can have on business productivity—not least less time in the garage. But when it comes to in-car tech, the advantages are a little more subtle. After all, how much can good climate control and a flashy DAB radio really influence business results? It helps to first zoom out and look at things from a wider angle. Firstly, what actually is in-car tech? Well, it’s not only devices built for entertainment and comfort, but it also includes those for connectivity, driving control, and... Read full article

Overcoming the challenges needed to make Driverless Car viable

Overcoming the challenges needed to make Driverless Car viable

It has been disclosed that a £15 wireless device can be purchased online which amplifies a modern car’s wireless entry system allowing access to the car by a third-party. We have also seen the astonishing Chrysler hack where a car could be tampered with from over 100 miles away. Another risk associated with rolling out technology in ‘smartcars’ as opposed to other platforms is the potential of distraction leading to accidents due to poor design or malfunctions. Technology experts outside of aviation and medical products tend not to follow... Read full article

Tesla So as so often can happen, fate was at work. I guess I was feeling frustrated with the usual conservative information feed, or perhaps some subconscious influence was at work what with all the Jeremy Corbyn focus of late and his inaugural speech to his party making me feel like I wanted to be a student again with all that optimism of youth. So when we pulled into the fuel station on our way to Gatwick, and while Rick put diesel into his tank, I made an instinctive move and purchased a copy of the Guardian, something I haven’t done since I was, well, a...

His last post was managing the fleet for the national crime squad, where he had special responsibility for covert under-cover vehicles used by the drug squad ML: Doug, life must seem a bit dull after working for the drug squad? DJ: Evidence still plays a big part in my work! In my role I am responsible for managing the re-charge on vehicle returns. It’s really important to produce the evidence and focus on the facts when you’re dealing with such an emotive issue as re-charges. Our clients have to trust me... Read full article

Downloading the sun

DOWNLOADING THE SUN by Jonathan Ross ML: Tesla Superchargers sounds like the kind of car toy I would have had for Christmas as a kid in the Eighties, but this one is for real. No one on the planet could help but be impressed by Elon Musk. As the man behind Tesla Motors, Space X, Solar City and founder of PayPal he is a visionary with attitude, and in my opinion is getting a lot right when it comes to the next generation, electric and beyond. My father-in law-lives in Den Haag, Holland, and as you would expect his community is tidy, clean and, well, European. His... Read full article
