Achieving Clarity in Consumer Van Information

Project Summary

A major challenge in the transition to lower emission light commercial vehicles is understanding the performance and capabilities of new models, particularly for consumers to fully assess the business and usage cases to accelerate the switch away from diesel. 

This project sought to address the lack of clear, consistent, and relevant information in the battery electric light commercial vehicle market. The project identifies a WLTP-based (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) dataset for new battery electric van listings to provide this information, along with recommendations for its effective presentation to consumers.
