Flipping the Electric Switch
Thanks to the Carbon Disclosure Project, an international, non-profit organization that helps companies and cities disclose their environmental impact, many government agencies in cities nationwide are switching to an electric vehicle fleet. These agencies have made it one of their top priorities to convert to a 100-percent electric fleet in a certain time frame.
Many cities, such as Tampa, have adopted an initiative to switch to an electric vehicle fleet in the hopes to become the leaders of minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing their carbon footprints.
It is important to Understand the Value Electric Vehicles, especially compared to ICE, or Internal Combustion Engine, vehicles, if and when your agency moves forward to convert your electric vehicle fleet.
It is also up to these government agencies to obtain a fleet analysis. That way the agency can oversee management of the electric vehicle fleet.
An Assessment Suited For You
An EV Suitability Assessment, is an accurate, data-driven and, most importantly, personalized EV recommendation tool that takes the guesswork out of electrifying your fleet.
Instead of guessing, an EVSA will suggest vehicles to be replaced by range-capable EVs, estimate the cost of savings and give a layout the reduction of emissions. The EVSA does this by using telematics data from existing fleet vehicles, identifies vehicles with a range-capable EV replacement and then determines vehicles that are cost effective to replace with range-capable EVs.
Most likely, there will be questions already posed when switching to an electric fleet, such as:
- Will an EV meet my drivers’ range requirements?
- Will the battery still perform in extreme-weather conditions?
- Which model of vehicle is best for each vehicle class I have?
Return on investment
- What will the impact of EVs be on my fleet’s operational budget?
- How much will my fleet’s carbon emissions be reduced?
Ultimately, many of these questions can be answered with an EV Suitability Assessment.
This simple tool and analysis can save time and money for your agency and is highly recommended before moving forward with a conversion to an all-electric vehicle fleet. Our EV Expert, Kim Thoman, can help you obtain a
