Alphabet exceeds 2015 electric car target after supplying 3,000th EV

AlphaElectric

Growing demand from fleets for electric vehicles has helped Alphabet surpass its EV target for 2015.

The company launched its electric vehicle consultancy service, AlphaElectric, two years ago, and since then it has seen a dramatic increase in interest from organisations looking to incorporate EVs within their corporate fleets.

Since the end of last year, the number of EVs on Alphabet’s portfolio has more than doubled to more than 3,000, with more than 1,000 of its customers having at least one on their fleet.

Key customers include Panasonic, Gnewt Cargo and West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust.

Daniel St Claire, e-mobility manager at Alphabet, said: “Exceeding our 2015 EV target is not only proof that our EV vision is correct and that we were right to place our full backing behind them, but also of the value that our AlphaElectric consultancy service brings to customers.

"Appetite among companies for electric cars and vans just keeps growing, especially as the price of EVs continues to drop and misconceptions are dispelled.

"As a result, in 2016 we expect to see the orders of electric vehicles continue to increase significantly.”
