Fleet Electric Vehicles: Is EV Right for Your Fleet?

Many fleets are considering the switch to electric vehicles (EVs) in order to reduce costs and emissions. However, it’s crucial to determine if EV adoption is the right fit for your specific fleet needs.

Geotab’s Telematics Data Helps You Make an Informed Decision

Considerations for Electric Vehicles

With Geotab’s telematics devices, you gain access to detailed data on your fleet’s driving patterns, fuel consumption, and more. This data allows you to accurately assess the suitability of EVs for your operation by considering factors like:

Daily driving distances

Compare your vehicles’ daily mileage to the range estimates of potential EVs.


Fuel consumption

Analyze your fleet’s fuel usage to estimate potential savings with EVs.

Routine maintenance & repair costs

Understand the projected cost differences between EV and conventional vehicle maintenance and repairs.

Electric Vehicles – Specific Reports and Alerts

With Electric Vehicles you need to stay on top of things that are not so critical with internal combustion engines. State of Charge (SOC) is just one example. Knowing the state of charge tells you if a vehicle can make it to one more job today and still get back to the charging station. Being able to see the SOC displayed on the map allows you to easily see the closest vehicle to a job with sufficient charge to make the round trip.

Green Goals for Electric Vehicles

Some of the largest fleet operations worldwide are committed to converting their fleets to electric vehicles. They anticipate immediate fuel savings as they reduce carbon emissions and that is a win-win, but electrification may not be the best choice for all vehicles doing all jobs. Geotab’s Electric Vehicle Suitability Assessment (EVSA) makes it possible to receive EV procurement recommendations that fit each vehicles driving profile while also understanding the total cost of ownership when switching to EVs.

Our EVSA tool helps you receive personalized recommendations on which vehicles in your fleet are best suited for electrification, considering their individual driving profiles. This analysis provides you with the data needed to make informed decisions about EV adoption and maximize your return on investment.

Electric Vehicle Range

Combating Range Anxiety:

Range anxiety is a major concern for many fleet managers considering EVs. Geotab’s telematics data allows you to proactively manage your EV fleet and charging infrastructure to minimize the risk of range anxiety. By analyzing historical data and identifying charging opportunities, you can confidently optimize your EV usage and ensure your vehicles are always ready for operation.

Geotab’s advanced telematics solutions provide you with the data and insights you need to make informed decisions about EV adoption, optimize your EV fleet, and maximize your ROI.
