Big Data helps fleets transition to EVs

Advertisement feature from Jaama

2030 is just over eight years away and many companies have already started to transition their car fleets to electric vehicles (EVs). For most fleets, eight years involves up to three replacement cycles.

There are many decisions that need to be made from a vehicle choice, operation and infrastructure perspective to manage the transition successfully. The growing car choice list and infrastructure changes over the coming years will constantly evolve which means fleets need to keep up-to-date with what is available.

Fleets will need Big Data and insight information, including wholelife costs to support choosing the most appropriate vehicles to ensure the transition is both timely and smooth.

Understanding mileage trends for each driver along with forthcoming charging infrastructure plans against real-world vehicle ranges and wholelife costs of new EVs will be a good place to start.

Jaama’s Key2 system has the ability to hold data from many different sources. Required data can then be served-up in an easy-to-understand format to ensure fleets are making well-informed strategic decisions. Key2 ‘is more advanced than its competitors when dealing with EVs’, according to Octopus Electric Vehicles which will help with any transition.

Ensuring a fleet management system stores comprehensive driver and vehicle data in real-time, which is easily accessible, will help make companies make the right decisions.

And, while 2030 still feels a long way away, Big Data will help companies shape plans of their fleet now to make that transition to zero emissions a much more enjoyable experience.
