New CleanPEA tool to see if fleets can switch to EVs

Dubbed CleanPEA (Promoting Electric Alternatives), the new system is based on the short-term use of a small GPS device to record driver usage behaviours. The data is then compared to the range restrictions and running costs of available electric cars to identify the drivers that could run an EV and what potential savings would be available.

Alex Baker, MD of Fleet Innovations, explained: “We have been using GPS devices in cars for some time with the CleanPEA sister product, PEAK Miles, which is used by more than 35000 users for their monthly mileage expenses. The process therefore is simple and proven with the driver placing a small device in their cigarette lighter for a few weeks. Once we have enough data we can run our reports and help an organisation decide what their EV policy should look like going forward.”

Baker added: “In a nutshell we are using real world driving to work out an incredibly accurate whole life cost. This can then be compared to a driver’s current car to see if there is a valid saving.”
