Say what you want about fleet sales, but they remain an important part of most automakers’ business and are vital to the success of the economy as a whole. And that, in turn, helps make the Vincentric 2012 Best Fleet Value in America awards worth noting.
“By taking into account a wide range of lifecycle scenarios, using all ownership costs, our awards enable organizations to understand and evaluate the best vehicles for their fleet," said David Wurster, president of Vincentric. "Fleet operators, fleet management and leasing companies, and fleet dealers can all benefit from utilizing comprehensive and dynamic cost-of-ownership data to make informed vehicle choices."
This year’s fleet-value leaders were General Motors, winning nine categories, and Toyota, with seven segment wins; of course, with more than 40 different segments to analyze, there were plenty of prizes to go around, and automakers like Ford, Hyundai, the Chrysler Group and even BMW and Mercedes-Benz garnered multiple recognitions as well.
