Finding out the purchase or lease price of a vehicle is easy enough, but what about the total cost of running and maintaining that vehicle throughout its life cycle? What different factors do you have to consider, and how do they vary from place to place? We talked to Pedro López Business Analyst e-Mobility of Athlon International about how this information can help fleet managers make decisions to make their fleet and mobility more cost-effective, the pitfalls they should avoid and how Athlon can take this complex process off your hands.
The Athlon office in Almere, the Netherlands, accommodates over 600 colleagues – in non-corona times that is. Additionally, the location has a large parking garage where ex-lease cars are parked until they are sold at auctions or through the Athlon Car Outlet, where we sell ex-lease cars to the public.
A van has four wheels and it gets you from A to B, so you might be forgiven for thinking it is just a car with a bigger load capacity. But for professional van drivers and companies, there is a lot to consider when choosing new vans and managing a van fleet. We share with you some ins and outs on van leasing with Athlon Belgium Van Specialist Steve Somers.
Even the best-managed fleet finds it challenging to meet unexpected, short and medium-term mobility needs in a turbulent economic climate. We spoke to colleague Frank Braband, Head of Project Passenger cars, Van and Truck Rental about Athlon Rent to find out about a flexible and efficient solution.
Just when you thought you were up to date on electric cars, we happily introduce you to another interesting technology: hydrogen cars, or ‘fuel cell electric vehicles’. So how do hydrogen cars perform in comparison to electric cars or combustion engines? And will we all be driving them in five years’ time? Erik van Wermeskerken, Large Accounts Accountmanager at Athlon Netherlands, tells us more.
