Free DriveTech white paper to support fleet switch to EVs

By / 7 months ago / UK News / No Comments

A new and free white paper is now available for fleets to help them switch to electric vehicles.

Published by DriveTech some four weeks after the Government’s announcement on the 2030 ban on new petrol/diesel cars and vans, the report provides insight and practical advice to help businesses adapt, innovate and prioritise safety when making the switch to EVs.

While interest in electric vehicles is fast-rising – a recent poll of 17,628 motorists by the AA and ITV’s Tonight programme found nearly half of respondents (47%) would consider switching to EVs – there are many decisions for fleet managers to consider to ensure that the transition period is a smooth one. This includes charging as well as cost and maintenance.

DriveTech’s new white paper on ‘Embracing an electric future: the right support for fleets’ explores the myths around EVs, the four steps to going electric and how drivers should be supported.

Charlie Norman, managing director at DriveTech, commented: “Today, there are almost 100,000 electric vehicles on the UK roads. As the adoption of electric vehicles continues at pace, it’s vital that businesses have the support they need to embrace an electric future. It’s our priority to help drivers to adapt and ensure they remain safe on the road and advise the role of driver training.

“Our pioneering white paper provides an overview of the current EV landscape and gives clear advice to fleets on how to maximise current and future opportunities. Completely free to download, we’d encourage all fleet managers to take a look.”
