A van’s typical usage pattern will pinpoint whether one of the new breed of economical petrol models like the Vauxhall Combo and VW Transporter TSI would be more suitable than diesel, while businesses and organisations whose drivers cover modest local mileages without the need for large payload capability are better placed to enjoy the tax and environmental benefits of an all-electric van such as the Nissan e-NV200 and Renault Kangoo Z.E.
Various van manufacturers have introduced scrappage schemes in recent times, Ford is currently perfecting plug-in hybrid technology for the ever popular Transit, and Citroen and Peugeot have introduced ‘automatic’ gearbox options for their mid-size Dispatch and Expert vans to appeal to trade and other commercial vehicle drivers who often find themselves stuck in traffic. Meanwhile, the new WLTP and RDE2 emissions tests are having an impact on the availability and performance figures surrounding certain models, which Van Leasing People will be happy to advise on.
The LCV sector is undergoing an exciting period of evolution, which firms such as Van Leasing People remain attuned to thanks in part to their close relationships with van manufacturers.
Identifying the right vehicle with the most suitable engine and other safety, seating, payload, cargo bay dimensions and technology features will enable an organisation to minimise its fuel spend and reduce the potential for wear and tear including tyres, ultimately aiding profitability or reducing expenditure.
