Prove the business case of electrification and secure internal buy-in
What is your organization’s motivation to begin electrifying?
For instance, is your organization driven to do this because of sustainability goals, cost savings strategy, current or anticipated government regulations, available funding/grants or PR potential?
Your specific fleet may not see the exact same outputs that other fleets have.
At this time, long-term data is lacking on specifics such as EV maintenance costs, EV longevity and EV value at retirement, especially for medium and heavy-duty vehicles. Most data is still communicated anecdotally. That data is still valuable; it simply should be framed for your senior staff as, “Our peers/competitors have seen results like [… ]. Our results will not be exactly the same, but we will regularly measure outcomes as we deploy our pilot.”
