How total cost of ownership (TCO) can improve your company car offer

Many companies are reconsidering the basis of their company car selection policy and moving away from basic or effective rental costs toward Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) or Wholelife costs. TCO means the true cost of the vehicle is calculated using a number of factors in addition to the vehicle’s rental price.

These factors vary but generally include:

  • Lease cost
  • Insurance
  • Fuel
  • Maintenance
  • Company taxation cost

TCO brings into focus all the costs associated with each company car, allowing a better understanding of the total cost of running that vehicle. Looking at one figure, rather than looking at costs in silos without ever consolidating them to one cost line, means a tighter focus on spend and value.

To demonstrate all this in a real scenario the following infographic tells the story of two very similar companies each using a different company car selection. See how using basic rental or TCO impacts massively on the type and value of the car that can be offered.
