Overview of CleanCar for Employers and Unions

Overview of CleanCar for Employers and Unions

First of all, welcome to the Overview of CleanCar for Employers and Unions.

In the time that we have been providing the CleanCar solution, we have worked with some very large organisations many of which have good solid union representation.

However, this “One Page” overview is about what CleanCar is, how it works and how we use the data…

Overview of CleanCar

So, CleanCar is an easy to deploy ‘vehicle usage profile’ data gathering method that (via a simple self-install device or Smartphone app) proves suitability and also provides accurate cost-benefit analysis to fully inform the decision making process to switch from petrol or diesel powered vehicles to their electric vehicle equivalents.

It helps a driver and company to see:

  •  If current diesel or petrol vehicle is or is not suited to a switch to an electric vehicle.
  • If making the switch to an EV will save the driver any money
  • What type of chargers are required and where they should be located?

In fact, what does CleanCar do exactly?

·         Establishes your vehicles ‘usage profile suitability’ to switch to electric

·         Details the cost savings with an accurate Whole Life Cost analysis report

·         Recommends best-fit EV replacement vehicle/s

How does it do all that?

·         By accurately profiling a vehicle/drivers regular vehicle usage profile

·         Uses GPS location data collected over a representative period

·         With a simple plug-in GPS device or Smartphone app

So, why bother with CleanCar and Electric Vehicles?

  • Many organizations experience cost savings of more than £2000 per year by driving an EV when compared to an equivalent diesel or petrol and save on greenhouse gasses.
  • The government are also introducing clean air zones as they will be requiring  vehicles in many cities to be zero emission to enter or pay a significant levy.

What you need to Know –

1.    Drivers journey details are never shared with a manager or an employer only if the employee gives specific permission to do so the permission is sought separately so is not something a user can do accidentally.

2.     Fleet decision makers will only see reports that show aggregate statistics of the vehicle that helps to prove suitability.

3.      Indeed customers can use data to show electric vehicle suitability, potential cost savings and ideal infrastructure locations.

4.     Data will not be used to improve driving or behaviour and certainly not to alert an employer of any speeding infringements.

6.    CleanCar adheres to the strictest GDPR and data protection rules. The parent company and developers of CleanCar.io (The Virtual Forge) have been awarded ISO 27001.

The road to cleaner, greener transport

In the nearly five years since we envisioned CleanCar, our core value proposition has become increasingly more relevant to business fleets and motorists, as we now accelerate into a mature transition phase to electric mobility from fossil fuel dependency. There are many fleet solutions but our CleanCar solution aims to fully inform both businesses and private motorists in making that ‘transition’ decision, gleaned from real world driving data, to produce an accurate, evidence based cost benefit analysis.

 So, what does CleanCar do exactly?

 Establishes your vehicles ‘usage profile suitability’ to switch to Electric for either personal or for an Electric Fleet

  • Details the cost savings with an accurate Whole Life Cost analysis report
  • Recommends best fit EV replacement vehicle/s
  • Provides charge point infrastructure location and type advice
  • Calculates C02 & N0X mileage based emissions reductions

 How does it do all that?

 By accurately profiling a vehicle/drivers regular vehicle usage profile

  • Uses GPS location data collected over a representative time period
  • With a simple plug in device or Smartphone app
  • Fully automated reporting process

 Why bother?

 Because the average motorists’ annual cost saving by making the switch is around £2,000 per year (that’s a decent all inclusive vacation by the way)

  • For SME’s the cost savings not only improves their bottom line but aids their competitive edge given the fast growth of restrictive, charge based clean air zones
  • For some large business Fleet’s, the significant cost benefits derived over time are in the hundreds of thousands of pounds range

So run that past me again – how does it do that?

 So, CleanCar is an easy to deploy ‘vehicle usage profile’ data gathering method that (via a simple self install device or Smartphone app) proves suitability and provides accurate cost benefit analysis to fully inform the decision making process to switch from petrol or diesel powered vehicles to their electric vehicle equivalents.

What’s all the fuss anyway?  – Diesel is cheap and clean now, right?

 Well not so sure about the ‘clean’ claim! And as for being cheaper, well, let’s find out…

Here’s a sample Whole Life Cost report extract that highlights the costs involved in leasing or purchasing plus running a Diesel Golf compared to a Nissan Leaf over a three year term.

Whole Life Costs analysis – Example here…..

Yeah but…. What about the range issue…  – It can’t do 400 miles can it?

You’re absolutely right on that one! If your vehicle usage profile needs a 400+ mile range then currently (but with not too long to wait) EV cars are probably not the right choice at this moment in time.  Anyway, who needs range of 400 miles if every single day they start with 100 miles of range and have not driven more then 50 miles in a single day (think about that second car). Understanding the electric car technology will allow you to have a better understanding of how the vehicle works.

Minority Report!

CleanCar has profiled and analyzed thousands of private and Fleet vehicle usage profiles and the instance where a 400 mile single trip range is in the <1% bracket.

Long Trips – The reality check

Pool car solutions, video conferencing, some pragmatic car share arrangements and plain old common senses usually solve the intermittent longer journey argument. On balance, the significant running & maintenance cost benefits of electric vehicles deliver has started to ensure that good business sense is starting to prevail.

Van with a Plan!

A pre planned en route recharge session and a probably much needed rest break during the one off long trip is probably a good idea from a safety and comfort perspective!

In conclusion an EV can do the majority of your journey distances – at a tenth of the fuel cost! There are so many benefits of electric vehicles that would be helpful for you making the switch and we can show that. Why not find out with CleanCar?
