Topic 1

Latest Fleet Vehicle Trends and Connected Vehicles

Presented by: David Crawford

The new frontier of the motoring industry is of course the journey toward autonomy; science and technology changes daily. Transport and mobility are no longer in a monopoly.

Tranquil little NZ tucked down the bottom of the world has everything to gain, according to David Crawford.

“There will be more change in the new vehicle space over the next 10 years than there has been over the last 60 years,” he says. “New Zealand fleet managers and the transport sector will need to plan for smart vehicles, changes in the fuel mix and for progress towards autonomous vehicles.”

The Land of the Long White Cloud is in many respects a long way ahead of its cousins across the pond.

“This is a big challenge as New Zealand is a ‘technology taker’. The pace of technology-based change is increasing in three broad areas: fuels, connected vehicles, and mixed driving fleet from manual to automated to autonomous vehicles.”

This star-gazing PDF will look at the international trends on new vehicles being made available for Kiwi fleets, and alignment with government aspirations for the sector in terms of environment and safety. Plus we’ll take note of key New Zealand fleet trends so you can run with the pack.
