EU project puts 900 electric vehicles on European fleets
A European Commission on sustainable electric mobility has led to the replacement of 900 petrol and diesel vehicles with EVs.
The Incentives for Cleaner Vehicles in Urban Europe (I-CVUE) project provided fleets with guidance on the business case for switching to electric vehicles with over 50 fleets participating.
The project also saw analysis undertaken in six countries – Austria, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Spain and the UK – on the fiscal incentives and charging infrastructure requirements needed to encourage a switch, which led to the development of the I-CVUE Total Costs of Ownership (TCO) web-tool.
The tool enables users to compare the total cost of ownership of EVs with petrol or diesel alternatives, with reference data sets for several European countries are available.
The web-tool will remain available to users until March 208: http://dsm.icvue.eu.
