Electric vehicle (EV) adoption is gathering pace. Many businesses are looking at EVs to help cut costs and carbon emissions. Find out how to use them in your fleet in the optimal way.
Why should I introduce EVs into my business?
Lower running costs than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles
Financial incentives from governments and cities
Greater amounts of vehicle data to improve performance
Simpler and cheaper maintenance
Reduced carbon footprint to help you achieve your sustainability goals
The chance to be a market leader by adapting quickly to the technological shift

Your journey to electrification
Plan for an electric future
It’s a matter of when—not if—your business fleet will need to make the electric transition. Switching to an electric fleet represents an organisational change and calls for careful, systematic planning to ensure business needs are met, cost savings are optimised, and disruption is minimised. We’re here to help.
Take the first step in electrification
Thinking about adding EVs to your fleet but not sure where to start? A fleet review and EV feasibility assessment is the first step in the planning process. Our Fleet Electrification Report will evaluate your current fleet and recommend which vehicles could be replaced with an electric model.
Establish your business case
Start by calculating prospective Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings – they can be lower than their diesel equivalents thanks to significant savings in everyday running costs. You should also consider financial incentives from the government, CSR, the PR and reputational benefits and meeting customer expectations.
Devise an electrification strategy
Set out your action plan. You should prepare for EV procurement, ready your drivers and work out charging matters. You’ll also need operational planning and support. Fleet management solutions can help not only the transition to EVs, but their ongoing management.

Maximise your cost savings
When deployed correctly, EVs can lead to substantial savings. Not only do electric fleets have a lower cost per mile, EVs also have lower maintenance costs due to fewer moving parts. With data insights, you can optimise routing to improve EV workflow and reduce charging on the way, cutting costs even further.
Achieve your sustainability goals
Connected EV data has a pivotal role to play when it comes to tracking your sustainability goals. Telematics can harness the intelligence needed to help you make smart decisions and unleash your electric fleet’s full potential. For example, with full visibility over EV battery status, you can set more sustainable charging practices and optimise EV usage.
