Vehicle Models

One of the marketing segments relies on a model representing a period. A vehicle model consists of a nameplate and shows the product from the manufacturer's point of view. Moreover, various names are viewable for a model, differentiating from others. Sometimes, it contains numbers/letters, and it is easy to identify a vehicle.

The Vehicle Models in your Fleet are designed by the Odoo Fleet Management system shown in the Vehicle Models window.
