New WLTP functionality added to Key2

Jaama has introduced new functionality to Key2 that enables users to utilise the data available following introduction of the new vehicle emissions and MPG protocol, WLTP.

Claimed to be more representative of 'real-world' driving than the outdated NEDC vehicle testing procedure, WLTP has been billed as “the world’s toughest-ever emissions standard”.

  • WLTP test results have been applied to all new car and lighter van models (Class I up to 1305kgs) since September last year.
  • From September 1, 2018 all cars and lighter vans (Class I up to 1305kgs) must be tested under WLTP rules along with new types of heavier vans (N1 Class II 1305-1760kgs and III above 1760kgs).
  • From September 1, 2019 the rules apply to all heavier vans (N1 Class II 1305-1760kgs and III above 1760kgs).

Introduction of WLTP is much more comprehensive compared with the ‘old’ NEDC test.

As a result, Jaama which takes vehicle data feeds from automotive industry providers CAP HPI and JATO Dynamics, has added new functionality to their Key2 suite of applications to manage this data. The new functionality will enable a greater insight into vehicle emissions and MPG performance for fleet decision-makers.

Martin Evans, managing director of Jaama, said: "Introduction of the WLTP testing regime is one of the most significant developments to impact on the UK company car and van market since the turn of the century.

"In an era when the focus of government, local authorities and business is on improving air quality, reducing vehicle emissions and limiting a fleet’s carbon footprint it is critical that fleet decision-makers have comprehensive emissions and MPG data at their fingertips.

"Jaama is renowned for ensuring its Key2 system is at the cutting-edge of fleet management so it is important that we continue to invest in updating functionality to ensure users have access to all the information to make decisions."
