The start point for the best source of fleet information

VW publishes WLTP calculator

Date: 14 December 2018   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Volkswagen Financial Services Fleet has made a WLTP calculator available for fleet managers.

Initially developed to support the firm's customers, the calculator has now been made publically available on its website.

Drivers can now calculate a 'before and after' cost comparison for vehicles that have been tested under the new regime, including BIK banding, annual tax cost and estimated real-world fuel costs. 

Head of sales and marketing Tom Brewer said: "We are proactively contacting our customers to advise them on their vehicle choices, and not just now, but right through to 2021 when the full scope of the new WLTP regulations take effect. 

"Our aim [in developing the WLTP tool] was to help our customers assess their fleet position and to communicate to drivers and stakeholders what's happening and how it will affect their business.

"We're still looking at ways to help fleets that run cars and vans make the tough decisions for the future. We have light commercial vehicle WLTP to come in 2019, then the roll-out of the more accurate Real Driving Emissions standard, which comes in two phases: in April 2020 and January 2021. 

"We want to advise fleet decision makers on what can be done now, not just in vehicle choices, but also in planning policy for the years to come."
