Electrify your fleet

Why should you electrify your fleet? 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 Ayvens, the question is not why go electric, but when. And the answer is now.

We can actively support your transition to an electric fleet with a 5 step approach:

  1. Diagnose

    In the first phase of fleet electrification, Ayvens Consultants help clients benchmark against peers, assess country and employee readiness, establish CO2 and TCO baselines, and define achievable targets. These steps are crucial for a successful transition to an electric fleet, tailored to our clients' specific goals.

  2. Model TCO & CO2 scenarios

    Working with you we will create TCO and CO2 models and scenarios tailored to your fleet strategy.

  3. Select the best mobility solutions

    Optimising fleet costs, selecting the right vehicles and OEM partners, exploring multimodal mobility options, and tailoring charging solutions to both your commercial and passenger fleets are all crucial at this stage.

  4. Engage your stakeholders and employees

    Working with you, we will help engage your stakeholders and employees to strengthen your business case by providing materials for employee training and internal meetings

  5. Implement, monitor and optimise

    Updating mobility policies, introducing reporting capabilities to track TCO and CO2 evolution, measing employee satisfaction and more are all included in the final stage of the transition plan.

We also help you conduct a price comparison, to see what kind of financial benefits you could gain.

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 Ayvens 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)?
