CLEAR Capture

CLEAR Capture

“CLEAR Capture” – Cost-effective Low Emissions Analysis from Real-world Data Capture

CLEAR Capture uses a simple, cost effective, plugin device that is sent by post and plugged in to the vehicle to gather real world vehicle drive cycle data. Using this data Cenex are able to provide fleet managers with reliable, accurate and unique whole life costs, operational performance and emissions savings comparisons of switching from a conventional vehicle to an ultra-low emissions vehicle (ULEV). The analysis does not rely on vehicle manufacturers emissions and fuel economy data but uses real-world fuel and energy consumption data based on independent testing and vehicle monitoring by Cenex (for ULEV fuel consumption data) and Emissions Analytics (fuel consumption from conventional vehicles). In this way, the CLEAR Capture analysis is directly linked to the specific fleet vehicle and its duty cycle, providing accurate results.

Clear Capture Process Flow Chart


As standard, CLEAR Capture will compare conventional cars against an electric vehicle (EV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and a range extended electric vehicle (REEV). Vans (up to 2.2 tonnes GVW) are compared against an electric model only due to the current technology maturity and market availability.

After the data collection and analysis you will receive a report that provides journey pattern overviews, charging profile, detailed total cost of ownership and potential savings model, and an emissions report that includes tailpipe and well-to-wheel CO2 savings as well as Particulate matter and NOX. Your analysis also includes a 30minute explanation call to go through your report and allow you to ask any questions.
