Automotive data company Autovista Group has launched a new subscription service that aims to better inform fleets about residual values and prices.

The new service will allow fleets to track performance by segment, fuel type and brands with the firm claiming its tool will allow fleets to track and anticipate risks to their fleet mix or commercial opportunities.

A spokeswoman for Autovista could not reveal the prices fleets will pay each month, telling Company Car Today the information is commercially sensitive.

For instance, Autovista said fleets will be able to track how emission regulation changes and an increase in electrification will shape the market in coming years, while it added fleets can benchmark its own model mix’s performance against a competitor.
