This year, four engines were tested: PHEV, Gasoline, Diesel and Electric, which enters the panel for the first time within the four categories: “Small Family”, “Medium Family”, “Utility SUV”, and “Medium SUV”.

We are living through a critical and fast-paced moment in terms of the transition to electric mobility, which is why, for the first time, in this year's edition, we have included EVs as one of the engines to be tested in all categories. We are proud to assume responsibility for choosing the best fleet car for 20 years based on criteria of maximum independence and rigor.

Ricardo SilvaCommercial Director of LeasePlan Portugal

The selection of models for evaluation of the Fleet Car, in this case the 15 finalists, was carried out taking into account LeasePlan sales, car market sales (ACAP) and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), considering that LeasePlan manages more than 10,000 Customers and has 114,000 vehicles under management, of which 60,000 are leased.

The winners of each category were obtained through a qualitative and quantitative analysis, with both components having an equal weight in the final score.

The qualitative component was analyzed by a Jury composed of 20 fleet customers, national and multinational companies, who analyzed a series of criteria such as the cabin, comfort and aesthetics, the engine and dynamics. The quantitative assessment encompasses the analysis of the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) components.
