Electrify your fleet

Why plug into electric mobility?

It’s simple: internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles account for a significant quantity of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. There’s an urgent need to reduce emissions to prevent the worst effects of climate change, and with 50% of vehicles on the roads today registered to corporate organisations, businesses have a key part to play.

But electrification is not only an opportunity to lower your business’s environmental footprint (and keep your customers, partners and investors happy). It’s also a way to improve cost efficiency thanks to a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO; see below) and to give employees a better and more high-tech driving experience.

At the same time, many companies are recognising not just the benefits of making the switch, but also the necessity of doing so. With greater regulatory pressure from governments and other authorities and higher sustainability requirements in commercial tenders, going electric is a vital condition for securing business continuity.

For LeasePlan, the question is not why go electric, but when. And the answer is now.

An international perspective on electrification

The experts from LeasePlan’s International Consultancy Services have been helping international clients embrace EV for many years. Our consultants work with you from the first spark of an idea all the way through to vehicle delivery and beyond.

Our first step is to carry out a Fleet Opportunity Scan, where we define the opportunities for your international fleet in line with your business sustainability targets. We also help you conduct a price comparison, to see what kind of financial benefits you could gain. But it doesn’t stop there: our team supports you in updating your fleet policy and planning how, together, we can put your EV transition into practice – all around the world.

Getting your drivers up to speed

Are your drivers wary of EVs or eager to step on the electric accelerator? Either way, fleet managers need to make sure employees are both motivated and trained to make the switch safely and efficiently. It’s also important that they can easily find answers to their questions – from the best EV driving behaviours and how to make sure they always have enough charge to whether they can use their EV to go on holiday.

Meanwhile, making the right EV choices for your employees is key to building up an enthusiastic workplace community of EV drivers. These ‘ambassadors’ will in turn be more likely to encourage colleagues to join the drive to zero-emission mobility.

Our experiences with our own fleet electrification programme and those of our many EV customers make LeasePlan the ideal partner for fleet managers. We can provide numerous tips and tricks to make the transition as smooth and positive as possible.

Should my company fleet go electric?

When it comes to the big decision, there are three major factors to consider:

  1. The route

    Can your employees easily drive between home and work? Or do some people need to cover longer distances on their commute, or to reach clients?

  2. Charging options

    Is home charging possible for your employees? Or will they rely on public charging stations or office charging points?

  3. The models

    Do some of your employees need more from their vehicle when using it outside work (like a large boot or space for all the kids)?

And remember: a one-powertrain-fits-all approach is usually the wrong route to take. Consider a mix of hybrids, plug-in hybrids and battery electric vehicles – to account for the different situations and requirements of your employees.

Expertise on eLCVs

Commercial vehicle fleets made up of LCVs have different electrification requirements than passenger vehicle fleets – but at LeasePlan, we don’t believe the process needs to be more complicated. We always take care to understand the specific needs of your company, ensuring a smooth transition to eLCVs for your commercial fleet.
