The EV Basics
There are three main kinds of electric vehicles: battery-electric (BEVs or EVs), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEVs) and hybrid electric (HEVs). Both BEVs and PHEVs need to be charged via special charging stations. HEVs use their onboard electric motor as a supplement to the existing internal combustion engine (ICE), and are charged via regenerative braking.
Because both BEVs and PHEVs require charging, you'll need to make some decisions about charging stations: where to install them, whether to install some at employees' homes, and how many you'll need.
It's well known that fully electric vehicles cost more upfront. But, what you may not realize is that over the lifespan of the vehicle, an EV could actually work out better for your bank balance, as well as better for the environment.
We'll review your goals and timeline, your particular vehicle needs, your charging expectations and financing needs so we can make the best recommendations.
We'll help you evaluate where to put charging stations, how to screen drivers, and what policies and training to offer.
From ordering your vehicles and installing charging units to training drivers, we'll get your fleet up and running.
We'll run your program just like we do for our non-EV fleets, with a few EV-specific needs too, like maintaining charging stations and employee electric bill reimbursement.
