Increasingly, local authorities and even national governments are banning the most polluting diesel and petrol cars. Some have even announced a ban on all cars with combustion engines by 2025 to 2030.
At the same time, electric vehicles are slowly hitting the mainstream. More and more carmakers are introducing affordable EVs with ranges of well over 300 kilometers. So, the time is now to electrify your fleet!
Optimal fleet electrification
Many international fleet managers ask themselves “To what extend can I optimally ‘electrify’ my fleet?”. Electric cars are everywhere. Or, at least, you’d expect them to be everywhere, judging from how much people in the fleet and mobility industry are talking about them.
The answer to the question can be found in looking at the problem country by country. Realistically, each country has different circumstances, i.e. terrain, government incentives, taxes, public charging grid, maintenance grid, and many more. These have an effect not only on your TCO but it also effects the time drivers spend to get to the nearest garage, the time they wait at a charging station while their car is recharging, or even the time spend finding a charging station and planning their trips.
Only few fleets are walking the talk. European-wide EVs don’t even represent 6% of new vehicle fleet registrations but that is likely to change now new EU regulations have fixed the threshold in 2030 for manufacturers to allow selling fully electric vehicles from that point on.
The E-mobility Factsheet
Business Lease has studied the numbers of charging stations, the number of PHEVs and EVs, and governmental regulations in Central Europe country-by-country and made a comparison with Western European countries. This study resulted in the E-mobility Factsheet, and shows you the latest data about electric vehicle adoption and charge point infrastructure. We share this factsheet upon your request, just to show we put our clients needs first.
