As an owner or operator of a business fleet, you’re probably always analyzing costs and efficiency. This may lead you to wonder if you should add electric vehicles to your fleet or change over entirely to them. Integrity Automotive in Williamstown, New Jersey, can assist you with that thought process as well as provide the auto services and repairs you need for fleet management regardless of the makes and models you use. Let’s begin with a clear understanding in case this is all new to you. A hybrid vehicle has both electrical and traditional combustion power. One can take over from the other depending upon the demands and availability of the stored electrical energy. An electric vehicle, on the other hand, operates solely on battery power (stored electrical energy). There is no internal combustion engine.
As you’re thinking about whether EV’s would work for your company, ask yourself a few relevant questions. Is the switch financially feasible? EV’s cost more upfront, and will eventually need battery replacement. However, the total operating cost across time is lower. If you can afford the initial purchase, your business will likely benefit over the long haul. Also, you can check to see if incentives, grants, or loans will help you make the fleet conversion. Next, how far and where do your fleet vehicles travel? You’ll need to match the vehicle’s range and/or the availability and location of charging stations with your company’s unique routes. You’ll want to ensure that you can optimize your business services and minimize down time.
