When you’re considering electrifying your fleet, you’re considering an overwhelming about of data points. Don’t worry – GPS Insight is here to help. 

Start with the total cost of ownership – how much will everything be, upfront? Consider fleet maintenance, fuel and energy costs, and how much the vehicle would be worth at the end of its service. You’ll want to ensure an electric vehicle will lower the total cost of ownership. 

Consider your ESG goals. What are your long-term environmental, social, and governance goals? These goals could include planetary, community, and philanthropic causes. Does electrifying your vehicle bring you closer to your ESG goals? It’s important to remember the typical electric vehicle is more environmentally friendly than an internal combustion engine vehicle, as it will produce zero emissions by having an electric motor. 

Ensure you’re reducing maintenance costs. With fewer parts, less liquid, and better builds, EV’s typically require less maintenance than the typical fleet truck. Do your research, check reviews, and ensure the EV you’re looking at is less work than the vehicle you’re trying to replace. 

Below we have “the best” electric vehicles, according to J.D. Power. We’re not just talking about a Prius or a Tesla Model Y – or even those Amazon Rivian vans that have taken control of every U.S. highway and state route. We’re talking about reliable, affordable electric vehicles with a high driving range and a solid EV charging infrastructure.
