Things are constantly evolving and changing – new technology, new electric vehicles, changes within your business – so continued analysis of your fleet is important to ensure your fleet remains optimised. On a continuous basis, we can use your fleet’s real world data to measure the success of your EVs and help inform your future EV strategy.
Using the mileage, fuel and charge data we collect via our app or online system, we provide dashboard reports highlighting cost, distance and CO2 output for your whole fleet.
We can compare the cost of EVs against your ICE vehicles on a regular basis to help you evaluate the performance of EVs in your fleet. We can also compare the real world kWh figures against those quoted by the manufacturer. This ongoing analysis will enable us to highlight any vehicles that are performing particularly well and those that are not performing as expected.
We will also compare costs by driver and provide support to drivers to encourage them to minimise costs by charging at home at every opportunity. This is particularly important for PHEV drivers – the success of PHEVs relies heavily on drivers charging them as much as possible. In the right hands, PHEVs will deliver financial, social and environmental wins but if not regularly charged, they cost more in fuel than traditional petrol and diesel vehicles – please see these articles in The Guardian and the BBC that use our real world data, for more info.
In addition, if your fleet uses Geotab telematics, the suite of EV reports will answer important questions such as:
- Will I lose productivity/time as a result of charging activity?
- How do I know if my EV has enough charge to complete the route for the day?
The EV charging report provides the complete charging history of each vehicle, including where and when EVs are charging, the length of time they were charging at each location and the amount of charge they actually received. You can also see how often PHEVs are being charged and check battery use is being maximised.
The MyGeotab Map functionality includes real-time battery charge % to identify which EVs in the fleet have the most battery charge. This increases response time when a vehicle, such as a service van or taxi, needs to be dispatched by finding the nearest vehicles with enough battery charge.
