How to: communicate your EV policy

Advertisement feature from Zenith

Once you’ve defined your future-ready electric vehicle (EV) fleet policy, it’s time to take the next, vital step – communicating with your drivers to inform them about it.

After investing a lot of time in developing your new policy to transition to a net zero fleet, you want to ensure your employees see this as a real benefit.

Communication needs to go further than a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) car policy and should educate drivers on the requirements of running of an EV and changes to their driving style, such as battery efficiency, usage and charging, including how to plan charging for daily use and longer journeys.

A well-drafted EV policy will help to improve the driver experience and give employees greater assurance that an EV can work for them.

Transparent communication of your decarbonisation goals and how EV fits within the company’s plans is also key.

Arming your drivers with this knowledge enhances the benefit of your company car scheme to them and makes EVs an even more attractive proposition. In turn, this boosts your company’s environmental credentials too.

By working with your fleet partner, you can access the expert knowledge of EV gurus. They will offer guidance on all things EV, from the developing nationwide charging infrastructure to Government initiatives put in place to help EV drivers.

Working with Zenith won’t just help you make the switch to EV. Our consultancy experts guide you through every fleet decision.
