The advantages of electric vehicles (EVs) for fleets are real, as proven by Amazon, Anheuser-Busch, and thousands of other organizations and municipalities across the nation. The question is how can EVs be a viable and beneficial option for your fleet? And when should you start the transition and how aggressively? Several factors unique to your organization should be considered before arriving at the best answers.
Why go electric? What’s in it for your organization?
The reasons for electrifying your fleet grow more compelling every day. EVs and equivalent internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles are becoming closer in list price. EV technology is advancing by leaps and bounds. In the coming months and years, new electric work trucks, vans, and heavy-duty vehicles are scheduled to enter the market.
- Lower operational costs
When EV charging is scheduled for off-peak rate times, the cost is a lot less than fueling up.
- Reduced maintenance costs
Since EVs don’t have engines to maintain, you can save thousands of dollars over an EV’s lifetime.
- Zero tailpipe emissions
EVs produce no direct, harmful, greenhouse gas emissions like fuel-powered vehicles do.
- Elevated brand perception
Research shows that most North Americans prefer “sustainable or eco-friendly” brands.
- Sustainability compliance
EVs comply with emission-reduction legislation and further your organization’s sustainability efforts.
