Corporate Vehicle Observatory
In 2002, Arval founded the Corporate Vehicle Observatory in France; it was introduced to Germany in 2005. Its purpose is to tackle questions related to corporate mobility at an international level from a neutral perspective. CVO covers a broad spectrum of topics. In addition to dealing with the use of new technologies such as alternative engines, it also addresses fleet management – paying special attention to total cost of ownership (TCO) – as well as general questions of mobility. These general mobility-related issues range from observing the control systems of individual countries to intermodular mobility systems. The findings on these topics are addressed in the following formats:
- Expert panel discussions
- Specialist brochures
- CVO fleet barometer
Special attention is currently being paid to the CVO fleet barometer, which has already seen its twelfth edition in Germany. The following points are covered each year:
- Where decision-makers stand on topics relevant to vehicle fleets
- Trends in the automobile market
- A comparison of trends in twelve European countries
The CVO keeps you up to date with the latest information and news in these areas:
It is absolutely imperative for fleet managers to find the best financing solutions for their employees’ mobility. The Corporate Vehicle Observatory provides you with a neutral database to help you review and confirm your own evaluation.
What’s in store for mobility in the future? Should you switch to carsharing? Are there more flexible alternatives? The future of mobility and people’s needs are changing rapidly. The Corporate Vehicle Observatory is your trusty guide for keeping up with these changes, providing you with annually updated findings on mobility trends.
People's changing requirements of mobility are deeply connected with evolving technological capabilities – and vice versa. It can be difficult to stay on top of things. To help with this, the CVO scrutinises new technologies through its expert panel sessions, publications and articles, also determining the significance of such technologies to fleet management in doing so.
The CVO is a key source of information for managers of national and international fleets and encompasses the whole of Europe. The current CVO fleet barometer not only provides information on trending topics like telematics, autonomous cars and the future of mobility, it also shows that leasing is to continue to serve as a primary financing method.
