When comparing propane to electric, fleets should examine factors around emissions, economics, and fueling.
New forms of sharing technology allow fleet operators — from corporate and rental fleets to motor pools — to increase utilization and recoup costs.
“Everyone comes into fleet electrification talking about hardware, and they leave talking about software workflow and project management,” says Michael Hughes of ChargePoint.
In the survey, conducted by Wakefield Research for telematics provider Samsara, 32% believe fleets will be one quarter electric within five years, while 50% believe in 10 years.
Electric vehicles’ short bout of success before gasoline engines became the mainstream gives us lessons for successful EV deployment in this new era.
Beyond electric vehicles, there is a wide array of fueling options that fleets can consider when identifying the best alt-fuel solutions for their operations.
Beyond the technological advancements considering vehicles running on unleaded gasoline or diesel, alternative-fueling technologies still very much have a place in the fleet space and are continuing to see technological advancements as well.
