PVS Group launches free WLTP and VED van report for fleets

PVS Group’s finance analyst Daniel Tuz

PVS Group has released a new white paper, ‘PVS Talks…WLTP Type Approval for LCVs’, to give fleet decision-makers WLTP and VED insight.

The paper, written by PVS Group’s finance analyst Daniel Tuz (pictured), reminds fleet operators that they will also have to cope with a new Vehicle Excise Duty regime for vans from April 2021 - delayed from April 2020 as initially announced - with the Government indicating that First Year Rates for high emission models could reach £2,000.

Additionally, van fleet operators are having to grapple with implementation of Clean Air Zones (CAZ) in towns and cities nationwide starting with the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in London which is effective from April 8.

While testing under WLTP protocols for cars has resulted in some models being axed or temporarily withdrawn from line-ups and lengthy delays in vehicles being delivered, PVS does not anticipate similar problems with vans.

The report says: “Manufacturers appear to have seized the moment and are proactively seeking to avoid repeating, what could be considered by some, an uninspired and lacklustre performance for car WLTP type approval.”

Tuz said: “Come September, fleet operators can expect a selection of LCVs to be available for sale. Therefore, fleet owners and managers should be reviewing their renewal schedules now. It is time to take stock and assess what can and cannot be replaced post the September 2019 cut-off.”

The white paper, ‘PVS Talks…WLTP Type Approval for LCVs’ is available for free download online
