Fleet management is evolving. Businesses are looking for ways to reduce emissions and save on fuel costs. Many fleet managers are hesitant to switch to electric vehicles, but it can be a smooth transition with proper planning. CEO & Co-Founder of Spiffy, Scot Wingo, and Salim Morsy, Senior Director, Shell Recharge Solutions, held a Webinar that focused on how this transition will bring sweeping infrastructure changes and how forward-thinking fleet managers are tackling challenges.
After leveraging insights from their fleet clients and years of industry experience, Scot and Salim focused on answering questions about navigating the shift towards EV fleets, and the infrastructural and logistical hurdles fleet managers need to clear for success.
- The top factors driving fleet electrification and the companies leading the charge.
- Step-by-step strategies to transition your fleet to electric vehicles.
- EVs' current and upcoming landscape and their estimated cost savings.
Despite recent years of shifting regulatory policies, OEMs are committed to a gradual shift to EVs, with as many as 130 available EV models by 2026, according to IHS Markit. For businesses that utilize fleets looking to get ahead of the curve, reduce emissions and promote clean energy, there are a few things to remember as you switch to electric vehicles.
