Fleet Electrification: What do you want to know?

Q. How long does it take to adopt EVs into a fleet?

A. Adding EVs to your fleet requires planning and how long it takes will differ depending on each fleet’s unique situation. To start, you need to create an EV adoption strategy.

Some fleets might take a more gradual approach and try piloting a few vehicles, as existing ones need to be replaced. Others might decide to launch a full-scale electrification program and start proactively swapping out a large portion of your fleet.

In both scenarios you will need to consider an important question: Where are your EVs going to charge? This is important because it will add time to your implementation. If you are installing a depot of charging equipment, make sure that you contact your municipal government and electric utility provider as soon as possible since timelines for approvals can vary.

In the end the process will be different for every fleet, so it is important to begin research as soon as possible.
