How can zero-emissions vehicles support your business?
Electric vehicles (EV’s) and fleet sustainability have been gaining popularity over the last few years and for good reason. Many manufacturers, including major traditional manufacturers who produce commercial vehicles such as pickup trucks and commercial vans, are dedicating more resources to developing and producing electric vehicles.
Zero Tailpipe Emissions
Electric vehicles do not produce tailpipe emissions and can reduce your business fleet’s carbon footprint.
With the exception of electricity charging costs, fully electric vehicles will avoid conventional fuel costs.
On average, electric vehicles have approximately 85% fewer moving parts than internal combustion vehicles, which can result in lower maintenance costs.
With anticipated longer battery warranties and fewer moving parts, electric vehicles are expected to offer a longer vehicle lifecycle.
