Having an Electric Fleet –
Alice Wilson – Digital Marketing Assistant
Are you a Fleet Manager or employee that is in control of a fleet and wants to switch to EV? Take a read of this blog, it will be worth your while…
Having an Electric Fleet is what all fleet managers consider and think about. However, the time of looking more into switching to EV is very time consuming. Also, the costs of converting to EV is the worrying and daunting part as you want it to be specifically right. It all comes down to the fear of the unknown. You, myself an fleet managers would never be able to work out which electric vehicles would suit each driver. That’s why choosing CleanCar saves you time and shows you the benefits of making the switch to electric vehicles for each of your drivers etc. see, all done for you.
What if –
What if the CleanCar system told you, changing your fleet to an Electric Fleet could save you money and in fact keep your air cleaner for your environment. Would you change your mind or even consider making the EV switch?
I thought you might…
Having a small or large fleet doesn’t mean your drivers will suit the same electric vehicles. All of your drivers daily journey’s are different. Deciding on making the EV switch is hard but having CleanCar guide you on the EV roads is beneficial. Once you have made the decision you have all the information to back your decision up for whatever that may be. For Example; Half of your fleet could be doing 100’s miles a day up and down the country. Whereas your other drivers might only drive 20 miles per day. So, the same vehicle’s would not be beneficial to each driver. CleanCar decides what vehicle would benefit each of your drivers individually. This is decided to each driver in their own personal account.
It’s okay for the CleanCar System to say you will save money, but it’s proving to you is the best bit. A lot of fleet managers are worried about making that leap to an Electric Fleet. Which is understandable, as it’s their responsibility and making the right decision counts as the money is funded from the business, so the decision has to be 100% correct. As I mentioned before, having data and information to prove to your Managing Director that the business will save money from the EV switch is what you want. This really does back your case up and it also shows that you have a understanding of how you are going to save etc.
Considering a Electric fleet…
Having an Electric Fleet is exciting. Especially for all the new vehicles that drivers will be driving around the car park at your office but where do we charge all those vehicles? How will they get in to meetings on time with the range that EV’s have? Majority of users will have charging points at home, so vehicles are guaranteed a charge throughout the night. So, it isn’t as worrying as you think… The worrying part from majority of drivers is called “range anxiety” something that you wouldn’t be able to change it will be overcome in time. It is just the initial worrying thought of thinking you are going to be running out of battery when you have a lot longer than you think to go before the battery runs out.
You charge your phone right? You know how much a 100% can last. I know my phone battery only last about 8 hours so as soon as I get home it will need a charge. I have had the phone for a year now, I’m used to how long the battery lasts. Do you see what I’m getting at? You get used to it. You adapt around it. There is nothing to worry about there are so many charging points around the country and at service stations and cities the country is really adapting to Electric Vehicles it’s great.
Recovery cover for your fleet –
Another thing you are probably thinking about is recovery. Are my drivers going to be looked after if the vehicle breaks down or runs out of charge? There is no need to worry regarding this as your drivers will be treated the same as any other car. How will they know how to fix a Electric Vehicle?
You ask, well… A lot of recovery companies have trained their employees to be prepared as there are a lot EV’s on the road already.
There are recovery companies that will tow you to the nearest charging station if you have ran out of battery, so you don’t just contact your recovery company when you have just “broken down”. This is to ensure that you your recovery service keeps you safe. There are a lot of companies are now supporting Electric Fleets. If you have actually broken down they would be able to sort the issue out as well as mechanic will be trained to meet the EV standards etc.
Knowing that a vehicle you drive everyday is making you overspend is mind blowing…
It is mind blowing especially knowing the amount of money you could be saving on other things. If you saw the amount of money the business would save from the EV switch, well… you would switch tomorrow! It is the fear of the unknown. Let CleanCar tell you. Not every business is benefited by switching to EV. This is the part where CleanCar find’s out if you are. We can find you a fleet solutions and give you a better idea of what would happen if you wanted to make the EV Switch.
Switching your Fleet to an Electric Fleet is a BIG jump in the business but knowing the benefits of electric vehicles and knowing how the electric vehicle technology is growing and expanding it is such an advantage to you and the business. Improving your knowledge on electric vehicles; charging points, solar panels it’s all to learn… Technology that is being improved each and every day to benefit businesses you haven’t even heard about yet.
Now, finding out if your drivers are doing the amount of miles that would be suitable for a EV is possible. The CleanCar system shows what vehicles are beneficial for individual drivers by a capture of journeys from the CleanCar device an a click of a button. All journeys are stored in their own personal accounts that are set up by the system, this is when the system will show what EV’s will be beneficial for the driver an if electric vehicle would be beneficial.
How can you measure this by their journeys?
Here is a brief explanation of the CleanCar system. A CleanCar Device that goes into 12V of the vehicle. CleanCar’s device would then record all journeys that have been driven. You will choose how long you use the CleanCar system for. The more time you use the CleanCar system the more data you will have and can reflect on. The CleanCar data will then be stored in your own personal account. After using the CleanCar device you will then be able to review your own data and view what vehicles will be beneficial for you in your account.
