Report: BVRLA Industry Outlook 2019


The British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association (BVRLA) has produced an Industry Outlook Report for 2019, which highlights the key topics that will impact the industry in the next year.

Key findings

  • Electric Vehicle (EV) lease ‘packages’ that combine rentals, servicing, charge points and occasional access to alternative cars will grow in popularity.
  • E-cargo bikes and micro vehicles will become an increasing opportunity for rental and leasing companies.
  • 2019’s key vehicle data theme is set to be prognostics – getting direct access to vehicle fault codes. It is believed that real-time and historic diagnostic data could enable fleet managers to make proactive interventions to improve vehicle safety, emissions and total cost of ownership.
  • Access to affordable charging infrastructure will soon challenge parking as one of the most precious bits of urban real estate.

BVRLA is the UK trade body for companies engaged in vehicle rental, leasing and fleet management.
