Alex Baker –  “Okay, CleanCar is a solution that helps to speed up the switch to electric vehicles, electric vehicles for a right person can be incredibly cost effective and can save you in excess to three thousand pounds a year. What we do is we help to make that happen by taking a small device like this or an app, we place it into a driver’s vehicle and that driver just so you know uses their car as normal we collect that data. We run it for a number of algorithms and we make it very simple by saying;
1. Are you suited to an electric vehicle?
2. Which electric vehicles will be suited?
3. Finally, will you actually save any money by making the switch to an electric vehicle?
So, we make it very easy for somebody to just make that risk-free decision.”
Tom Blades – “Fantastic I have that back. Well I’ll have to do it find out in the edit, if we got a minute. I’m just checking with the team yeah okay, I think we did so that was good thank you Alex.”

Alex Baker – “Thank you.”

Thank you for watching our elevator pitch. I hope it has all the information you needed about CleanCar.

Please see below some Frequently asked questions that our team have answered that are relevant to this podcast –

Who can see your journeys?

Short answer, only you. Only drivers can see their journeys with the journey detail hidden from your manager, your colleagues or your employer; there is no way for anyone to look at your business or personal trips. CleanCar is not designed to track what you do but is a system that will use journey data to show your suitability to an electric vehicle. We will never share your journey details with anyone unless you give us explicit permission to do so.

Data processing at night.

Your trips will be captured by the CleanCar device and sent to your unique CleanCar account that only you can log into. The journeys will be sent using a 2G or 3G mobile network, which will send the data into your account in the early hours of the following morning.For example, your Monday trips will be processed and uploaded in your account on Tuesday morning.

Is CleanCar new?

No, it’s not the CleanCar system has been assisting the fleet market to make the switch for about four years. However, the latest version of CleanCar, the one you are using is very new. This version has been rebuilt from the ground up to aim at individual users as opposed to fleets.

Who are the team behind CleanCar?

CleanCar is owned by The Virtual Forge and run by Alex Baker, www.thevirtualforge.com are a company who design exciting and innovative IT systems for some of the worlds best-known companies, they also analyse lots of data.We have about 120 employees based all over the world in the UK, Portugal and the USA.  The team dedicated to CleanCar numbers eight presently with loads of support from the rest of the group.Our founder Alex Baker would love to hear your views, drop him a line on alex@cleancar.io

How does the device work?

The CleanCar device (we must find a catchier name, send ideas to helpdesk@cleancar.io) 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

If you would like to read the script for the CleanCar EV podcast –

Tom Blades –

“Hello technology fans my name’s Tom blades and I’m from Dreamtek and welcome to the Dreamtek technology podcast where each week I’ll be talking to a special guest from all four corners of the technology world our aim is to bring you the people behind the technology and to delve deep into the newest innovations and trends at the heart is Dreamtek a technology company that specializes in high-tech systems integration and beautiful video production not to mention a little sprinkling of live streaming big events around the globe if you have a technology broadcasting or video production to crack then why not give us a shout at info@dreamtek.tv, seen on the screen now or check out our website at dreamtek.tv. This week I’m lucky enough to be joined by CEO of CleanCar.io Alex Baker.”

Alex –

“Hello, Tom.”

Tom Blades –

“So, we’re gonna be talking a little bit about CleanCar. Now CleanCar to me sounds a lot like it’s about emissions am I right?”

Alex Baker

“Absolutely yes, so the UK government and many other governments are on a on a mission to try and cut emissions in our cities the research shows that there is no safe level of emissions. It’s causing all sorts of health problems the issue that you have today is there was a lot of transport located or focus on a lot of areas in the city and that’s creating health problems from from poor air quality. One of the solutions to that is to get more electric vehicles replace internal combustion engine vehicles with electric vehicles. Ultimately that’s what CleanCar does you know it is a solution that helps to speed up the adoption of electric vehicles for fleets and for consumers.”

Tom Blades –

“Yes an enabler”

Alex Baker –

“Absolutely, yeah”

Tom blades –

“Yeah, so we can’t lie we have met each other before and so what is Dreamtek’s involvement in CleanCar? What’s the journey been like from from kind of day dot all the way to where now.”

Alex Baker  –

“So, Dreamtek you’ve been involved in CleanCar really forums from day dot.”Dreamtek have built the majority of a technology you know it’s being kind of my vision initially working with the team around Dreamtek you know designers or developers you know the database administrators so on and so forth to actually build the solution and and you know without having you know a DreamTek and the Virtual Forge Team around you know we wouldn’t be where we are today you know we are sister companies at one another you know and it’s been a it’s been a very interesting journey it’s been a great journey clearly was a bit ups and downs it’s technology you know we’re doing things nobody had done has done before.”

Tom Blades –

“Okay and so it’s very very complex as I’ve told me before but can you give me kind of a high-level grassroots kind of explanation of what CleanCar is and what it aims to do with it’s customers.”

Alex Baker –

“Well CleanCar’s complex behind the scenes but I think really whenever you’re delivering a solution it needs to be simple it often is very complex we’re done behind the scenes. CleanCar really can be can simply summed up, I don’t I suppose the elevator pitch is you know what we do is we take a small device like this and we can distribute that via fleet or directly to a consumer we also have an ID an Android and iPhone app as well and what you do is you place the device in your vehicle and you drive about as normal and all the time data has been sent to the CleanCar System and we’re running and flip that data for a number of different algorithms.

The main thing that we’re able to then do is say number one is that driver suited to an electric vehicle we can then also say of the electric vehicles they are suited to which potentially would be best suited to their requirements and as well as that we’re also able to say if you were to replace a like-for-like internal combustion engine you know the kind of vehicle you’re driving around with in today with a an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle will you actually see any cost savings.

We’re focusing on what’s called whole life cost or total cost of ownership the final piece of a jigsaw and this works quickly while we fleets you know if we’re looking at the fleet and there say you know I have a hundred vehicles they might be replacing thirty of them with electric were then able to say how many charge points two they need where should they put those charge points and what is the ideal mix of charge points you know what kind of killer what charges should they install so really what it enables is somebody to make a very quick decision completely risk-free you know they know that they’re going into it you know doctor electric vehicle but they doing it with their eyes wide open”

Tom baldes  –

“mmm… that’s really interesting so before we get into whether I’m suitable for an electric vehicle and my background is very much automotive, you know I started off with a motor manufacturer when I was 17 years old mostly around sort of gas guzzling rally cars but then went into very much the sort of development of networks and so on to sell vehicles and so on and I also was very lucky enough this year to go to Portugal to the launch of the new Ipace for Jaguar.”

Alex Baker  –

“Lucky you.”

Tom Blades –

“Yeah I know exactly… it was very cold which was very random to see kind of where we’re at you know right at the coalface of this beautiful car that kind of encapsulated technology but also encapsulates the style of what is a very much heritage name and a heritage brand so I think we’re quite far along but from somebody on the inside of the industry like yourself what is the state of the the EV  market?”

Alex Baker –

“So, I don’t think the industry has done itself any favors up to this point. You know there has been some very strange vehicles I know you started to move ugly I would say yes yeah not necessary ugly but kind of Noddy cars I’ve heard people describe you know these days for cars really look a lot better they’ve got a much better range as in they’ll go a lot further and practicality wise they are as practical as as any other vehicle that’s out there certainly you know one of the things I hear a lot from people who drive electric vehicles is there a lot more fun to drive as well you know they are very very quick we were talking earlier about the P P 100 D test.”

Tom blades –

“Oh yeah of course that’s an absolute yeah yeah yeah yeah.”

Alex baker –

“That’s an absolute monster of a car to drive, the industry needs to do more you know when you look at the stats you know certainly we’re in our database there’s about 20,000 available variants on the market today vehicles.”

Tom Blades –

“Wow, that’s a lot more than I expected or twenty.”

Alex Baker –

“There’s 20,000 available total vehicles only point seven percent of all of those vehicles available electric and around about two percent are hybrid plug-in hybrids so on and so when you actually look at the percentages are available on the market was not a lot to choose from.”

Tom Blades  –

“Yeah and I think that’s it really I mean I remember doing an interview with some of the people within the network of the manufacturer I used to work for and they were screaming for a normal vehicle with an electric variant either you know or motor a very attached to it instead of these kind of newer shaped or kind of moon buggy style as you mentioned so I do want identify with that I mean again. I don’t identify with the facts as well.”
