Arval and Public LLD sets up “Energy Transition & Modernisation” solutions

Arval’s Public LLD has launched a new solution called “Energy Transition & Modernisation” adapted to the needs of state and local communities to accelerate their vehicle fleet transformations.

Public LLD, a branch of Arval, is dedicated to changing the (7-9 year old) public sector fleets, which are largely diesel powered but could be transitioned to electric, hybrid and petrol – with 30 to 40% of the needs of communities deemed perfectly compatible with electric vehicles.

The transition will be aided thanks to no additional cost to fleets, due to financing they can make from rental and car pooling, the company says.

In addition, it is including easy access to electric vehicles via a key offer in May and developing shared mobility to increase utilisation rates and generate additional revenue. At present, 27% of public sector vehicles are leased and Public LLD believes a reduction in the region of 20% of the overall operating budget of the parc could be made.

Furthermore, dynamic fleet management will be undertaken using telematics, with 100% of vehicles supplied by Public LLD being equipped with telematics features that can be activated by customers according to their needs and priorities.

Ferréol Mayoly, general manager, Arval France, said: “Armed with our know-how and innovative partnerships with Renault-Nissan and NewMotion to promote electric vehicles in fleets, Arval is mobilising to support public sectors in their changes. Our ambition is to be the catalyst for the virtuous and structuring changes of tomorrow.”
