Car Cost Advisor

The market reference for TCO and car taxation.

A must have tool for automotive retailers.

Car Cost Advisor is a unique web application tailored to the car salesman, which translates current car taxation into an objective customer argument.

Choosing the right car is difficult enough in itself. The evolution of CO2 emissions, the successive changes in tax regimes and the various financing options have increased uncertainty in making the right decision and made it more complicated. The concept “Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)” has lost credibility as an objective factor of predictability and certainty.

How can car salespersons calculate the running costs of a new car, adapt their offer to the requirements of different types of customer and thus objectively compare the different powertrains?

Intuitive

Every step in the development of Car Cost Advisor is based on a precise idea: to help the showroom and fleet salesman to give the customer sound advice when choosing between different engines. Fully adapted to the user profile of the vehicle and with a tailor-made TCO approach: simple or fully detailed. This way, no complicated calculations for the salesperson. Fast and clear, and with all the parameters that can be adjusted.

A real-time database collects tax and consumption data from more than 9,000 vehicles. Manual entry is therefore limited to what is strictly necessary.

Easy in use

The Car Cost Advisor works flexibly on PCs, laptops and tablets. Six simple steps lead to a display that shows the different TCO levels: the direct costs and the results before and after-tax. Also, Car Cost Advisor produces different PDF versions in 3 languages, eventually allowing the customer to provide the information to his accountant.

Besides, the accuracy of our calculations has been audited by PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
