The Impact of Brexit on the Fleet Motor Industry

The Impact of Brexit on the Fleet Motor Industry

​On Friday 29 March 2019, Britain will have completed its transition to leave the European Union. While many campaigners have pre-empted the outcomes of this political decision, many are still left unsure of its impact on many industries across the UK. From the outset, there is a common expectation among fleet-lovers that there will be a very short-term decline in sales for finance brokers and dealers. However, this is expected to dissipate within a few years post-Brexit. A recent poll conducted by Paragon quizzed individuals on how they thought Brexit would impact on... Read full article

Preparing for the Inevitable Takeover of Telematics

Preparing for the Inevitable Takeover of Telematics

We all need a helping hand from time to time. If you’ve ever conquered a long journey along a motorway for hours on end, it’s inevitable that you would use the sat-nav in your vehicle to complete your journey in an unfamiliar town or city. Sometimes, we underestimate the importance of technology-assisted devices in our vehicles, although this is set to change in future. We live in a world where we have access to devices which make our lives that little bit easier, for example the simple black box can keep premium costs down, improve driver behaviour and...

Autonomous Vehicles to be Driven on London’s Roads Before Christmas

Autonomous Vehicles to be Driven on London’s Roads Before Christmas

​As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago on a previous blog, electric vehicles are closer than we may presume. In the lead up to Christmas, autonomous vehicle trails are set to be carried out by a government-backed consortium across London’s roads. This development will begin across Hounslow as a starting point for the consortium’s ambition to have a fully-functioning fleet of driverless-cars making journeys between London and Oxford into the new year. These vehicles will map the streets of London, allowing them to understand road signs, lane marketing and... Read full article

​We all love a trip to the supermarket. Especially in the run up to the festive holidays, it’s a time to stock up on Christmas dinner luxuries and last-minute presents. If you’re an owner of an electric vehicle (EV), as part of your company’s fleet, we’ve got some great news for you.

British Gas Launches New Tariff for Electric Vehicle Drivers

British Gas Launches New Tariff for Electric Vehicle Drivers

​Electric cars are a thing of the future. As with emerging technologies in this age, there are understandable concerns from modern drivers on whether these are a possibility to fleet and drive. Many motorists dismiss the idea of an electric-powered vehicle due to the lengthy charging time, and rarity of power points across the country. To battle these concerns, British Gas announced last week the launch of their new smart-time-of-use tariff, ‘Green Drive Nov 2020’ for electric vehicle drivers, fixed until November 2020. This allows current EV owners to have... Read full article

​It’s interesting to keep an eye on motoring developments across Europe, not least, to see what we can learn from good practice.

Company car registrations and leasing figures are expected to increase, recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.9% for the next... Read full article

​As individuals responsible for your fleet of vehicles, it is important to keep on top of the latest news and legislative changes in the market. Since the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) was activated at the beginning of September 2018, there have been mixed reviews from people who manage fleets of vehicles throughout the continent. It has been estimated that 1.12 million vehicles were registered in September 2018, a 343,000 fall from the previous year. This sharp drop in registration of European vehicles has been as a result of ongoing... Read full article

Waymo Setting the Benchmark for Self-Driving Cars

Waymo Setting the Benchmark for Self-Driving Cars

​As technology is advancing at an alarming rate, it is becoming only a matter of time before driverless cars are a regular topic of conversation with individuals around the world. In the United States, Waymo and the California Department of Motor Vehicles announced earlier this week that the Golden State has approved a permit for the company, who specialise in self-driving cars, to drive across a section of Silicon Valley cities. Since 2014, Waymo has been allowed to operate autonomous cars under state law, allowing the company to test a fleet of up to three dozen... Read full article

When Best to Change your Fleet’s Tyres

When Best to Change your Fleet’s Tyres

​When first taking on the responsibility as a fleet manager, it brings about a big change to your normal regime and can be difficult to adjust to this new life. As you begin to assume the role of a health and safety advocate over your fleet drivers, it is important to keep on top of vehicle maintenance, especially the tyres with regards to safety, cost and compliance. Each of these elements of tyre management have a knock-on effect on each other. Waiting on the tyres to fulfil their lifespan is a dangerous tactic, as the closer to the 1.6mm tread depth they reach, the... Read full article
