The maximum range of an electric vehicle is still the main concern of fleet managers. It rightly creates a barrier to purchase, despite the undeniable advantages of EVs. This is why it is necessary to understand the notions of maximum available range and maximum daily range of a vehicle. It is also necessary to explain to drivers what strongly affects the actual range. Training even when vehicles are purchased can be useful. Especially since it can be free!
Each GFA must therefore ask itself certain questions in order to choose the electric vehicle that is really adapted to the company’s activity.
First, clearly define your needs. Do you need an electric vehicle with a range of over 320 km? Will a battery with a shorter range be sufficient? Wouldn’t a partial electric conversion with a plug-in hybrid (or not) be preferable, given that you sometimes drive more than 600 km in a day?
It is wise to ask yourself, to exchange freely with the stakeholders and not to be tempted because it is “in the air of time”. Don’t be mistaken. This kind of mistake is paid for in cash.
