Trakm8 has launched a new product it says allows vehicle test drives to take place while observing social distancing.
Trakm8 Insight is a self-install tracker system the firm says can be easily swapped from vehicle to vehicle in mixed fleet settings.
It is chiefly aimed at car dealers, who will be able to send customers out for test drives unaccompanied, while monitoring the vehicle from the dealership.
Trakm8 group sales and marketing director Peter Mansfield said: "Trakm8 Insight is incredibly user-friendly, with the self-install functionality requiring no hardwiring - meaning it can quickly and simply be exchanged between vehicles.
"Be it a franchised dealership or an independent used car trader, the Insight solution is easily adaptable for any vehicle, helping retailers safeguard their stock."
Mansfield said that the system could also help the user track the health of test vehicles, receiving an alert if a problem is detected.
He added: "As Britain's automotive retail sector looks to bounce back, we at Trakm8 want to do all we can to help them and ultimately, get Britain moving again."
