An increasing number of cities are striving to improve local air quality by discouraging or banning ICE vehicles, whether with the introduction of low-/zero-emission zones, urban road tolls or access regulation schemes. Many fleet operators will feel the impact of these governmental and municipal measures. This could put companies with an ICE-powered fleet at a disadvantage compared to competitors operating electric light commercial vehicles.

Electrifying your fleet is important to tackle such accessibility challenges but it is also a great way to combat climate change. But what do you need to know before transforming your LCV fleet to electric?

From availability, battery, to cost of e-LCVs

In this white paper we discuss the main topics that arise when transitioning to an e-LCV fleet, ranging from availability, battery, to the cost of e-LCVs.

Here's some of the main takeaways:

  • The government incentives, the wider choice of e-LCV models and the introduction of zero- and low-emission zones in many European cities are driving the growth in demand for e-LCVs
  • To understand the total cost of ownership (TCO) of e-LCVs, we need to take three cost components into account: purchase price, running costs and taxation
  • Workplace charging is the main charging requirement for e-LCVs
