Planning your Electric Fleet

Electric Vehicles are no longer a thing of the future – they’re here and growing more popular every day. While the notion of adding them to your fleet might seem stressful and intimidating, it’s important to consider the many benefits that come with including EVs in your fleet, like lower fuel costs and simplified maintenance.

Customers and employees are also looking to companies and employers to be more forward-thinking, tech-savvy, and environmentally responsible, and businesses can be seen as a leader in an electric future by using alternative fuel vehicles. In addition, creating a more energy-efficient fleet by using EVs can result in tax credits as rewards for reducing your carbon footprint.

Gassing Up

Gas stations currently outnumber charging stations seven to one, but the tide is predicted to change – and fast. Many influential companies, such as Duke Energy, Royal Dutch Shell, BP, GM, Tesla, and Volkswagen are not only committed to increasing the number of EV charging stations available, but also to making them quicker.

While there are more charging stations in other countries where electric vehicles are growing in popularity more quickly, that’s all about to change. In the U.S., gas stations are converting to electric charging stations and we’re seeing stations popping up at popular chains like Walgreens, Kroger, and Wawa, among others.
