How does the CleanCar device work? In more detail…

The CleanCar device is an incredibly smart piece of kit, but for this FAQ, we will keep it simple.


  • The CleanCar device has been designed to record GPS coordinates of your location while you are driving.
  • It will do this every 10 seconds or 100 metres or 25-degree change in direction so on a winding road it takes more coordinates and on a straight one less.
  • The device saves these coordinates and every few minutes it connects to the mobile network via an onboard sim and uploads these to the CleanCar portal. It will store around ten days of driving if for any reason there is no signal.
  • Once we receive the data, we store it up, and while most people are asleep in the early morning, our servers and algorithms convert it into journeys and statistics.
  • The following day you will be able to log in see your stats.
  • CleanCar aims to help users like you to make the switch from your internal combustion engine to an electric vehicle

How can CleanCar help your Fleet? Electric Vehicles are the future…

Written by Alice Wilson – Digital Marketing Assistant

Are you a Fleet Manager worried about making the Electric Vehicle switch. Also, wasting a lot of money researching to much into it?  No one likes to waste money or time. The CleanCar System knows how you feel. If you are looking for a fleet solution then you are reading the right blog.



Discover with CleanCar!

It will take around 10 minutes to read. However, it will save you a lot of time in the long run, as you will find out whilst you start to read how we have a Fleet Solution for your fleet.

There is big responsibility involved in being in control of a whole fleet of vehicles whether it be from 10 – 20,000 vehicles. One of the top subjects to be thinking about is saving money for the business, isn’t that right?  But how do you do it? You have no time to look into it, so let CleanCar work out all the information for you. No need to overthink it…

Many fleet drivers want to know the benefits of electric vehicles, the cost of ownership and what technology it takes to make that Electric Vehicle switch.  It’s finding the best fleet solutions to suit you and your fleet. Well… this is where the Cleancar System can help you. The CleanCar System is your solution to your fleet issue of not knowing whether to make the Electric Vehicle switch or not. CleanCar has the system and statistics to making your fleet an electric fleet.  Read on for a better understanding of our system.



Not all EV cars are suitable for everyone – that is why there is a variety of choices for different drivers –

Remember, no one’s account is the same.  A BMW i3 may be suitable for one of your drivers to benefit from. On the other hand another driver may be suitable for a Nissan Leaf. It all depends on the driver and how many miles and journeys they undertake etc.  Giving the drivers knowledge of knowing what specific electric vehicle would benefit them and would help them have the confidence to know they are going to save money, as well as the business they work for.

An Electric Vehicle will save the business money and be a great benefit to helping with environmental issues. Making the switch by being proven it can be a great benefit to the driver and the business, is the best outcome. Once your fleet has switched to Electric Vehicles, the business will start to see a huge amount of savings.  Every fleet manager I am sure will be thinking, why didn’t I make this decision before? Have you made the decision now? No looking back to diesel/petrol, they are a vehicle of the past…



What if an electric vehicle was not for you?

If drivers would not benefit from having an electric vehicle then this will be made clear to the drivers from our system.  Not everyone suits an Electric Vehicle. Finding out if your fleet is suitable by using CleanCar is the safe way. You would not want to buy a fleet of Electric Vehicles and see you are losing money and trying to prove to your boss it was the best decision etc.  If this was to happen, this would be disappointing from the businesses perspective as this takes research, time and effort. Having the facts in black and white is something to go to your Managing Director with to prove you are ready and the business is ready to make the switch.

Having the information to prove your point, that there is going to be a positive impact for the business, will help in suggesting an Electric Vehicle transition. If it isn’t a positive impact you haven’t wasted as much money as you would have done by purchasing the whole fleet an Electric Vehicle, you just used The CleanCar system instead. Quick, easy and mess free. What do you think? Why not take the risk and use CleanCar?



What some Drivers experience through the switch –

Some drivers changing from a diesel or petrol vehicle to Electric Vehicles can be frustrating… The thought of did I charge my vehicle last night? Will I need to charge again in the day? Have I got enough miles to get to this meeting? It is the anxiousness of knowing you do not have a lot of miles per charge but 100 miles is enough. You would quickly adapt to how many miles you vehicle would do. This is what we call “range anxiety” it occurs as drivers get quite anxious in case they run out of battery. Would you let your vehicle run out of fuel?  No, so why would you let your vehicle run out of battery.

The electric car technology is changing. It is changing for the better to improve the range on vehicles. However, charging points are appearing everywhere now so all drivers that feel panicky need to just plan their journey ahead of time. All drivers at first will take it as a shock to charge instead of fill up, but the more they drive the vehicle the more they will become confident in doing longer journeys. All you will need to do is have a few stops along the way.  These stops could be used to the drivers advantage, maybe to make a call, stop for a drink or just a rest on a long motorway journey.



Changing your business to electric and ECO friendly –

It is positive to know that the business you work or manage has made massive changes. The massive changes to help get on to the EV roads. Helping the environment and keeping our air cleaner for the future. The more diesel/petrol vehicles you switch to Electric in your fleet the more the business is becoming ECO friendly. Ready for the future? A lot of businesses are adapting to making future changes for the EV roads ahead. You just need to know which benefits of Electric cars would be good to you and your fleet.

CleanCar is here to help you decide if switching to an electric fleet will be a beneficial decision or not. We have the facts and we also have the statistics, it shows you the information that will encourage you to make the electric vehicle switch. Only if it is beneficial for you or fleet to do so. If we don’t think the Electric Vehicle switch will be good for the business or beneficial we will be able to explain why.
