LeasePlan's second annual Virtual EV Summit provided a full spectrum of EV information both within the fleet environment and beyond, highlighting both the challenges and solutions in the journey to vehicle electrification in the US. It also gave us an excellent opportunity to discuss learnings from our inaugural Virtual EV Summit in 2021, as we heard from previous attendees who are experiencing fleet electrification first-hand.
