Fleet Advice Tool
Built to help fleet operators make informed decisions about future vehicle procurement the tool uses real-world vehicle performance data gathered through independent trials and research to forecast potential whole-life vehicle cost.
Developed with guidance and input from, and endorsed by, the LoCITY working groups, which represents a diverse group of fleet users as well as fuel and vehicle suppliers.
Split into Basic and Advanced modes gives indicative results without needing all the input data. The Tool provides a comparison on on the potential cost, air quality and CO2 emission impacts, and commercial maturity of different alternative technologies available, depending on the vehicle type selected, against conventional diesel vehicles.
There are several factors you need to consider before selecting the most appropriate low emission vehicle for your fleet. Our Tool contains a range of advice that summarises the key issues for technologies including battery electric, plug-in hybrid electric, range-extended electric, hybrid electric, biodiesel, LPG, and natural gas.
