Webfleet Solutions launches EV features

Webfleet Solutions has enhanced its offering with new features that provide fleet managers remote insights into their electric and hybrid vehicles.

The EV management tools are part of the new release of Webfleet (version 3.10) and provide real-time information on charge levels, driving range, charging status and remaining charging time, to ‘support fleet managers to electrify’.

Beverley Wise, sales director UK and Ireland of Webfleet Solutions, said: “With the electric vehicle (EV) management tools, we are helping our customers to adapt to EV operations and maximising their cost-saving potentials.

“By knowing exactly how much charge a vehicle has and how far it needs to travel, fleet managers can avoid higher charging costs during peak time or waiting in line for charging.”

Webfleet Solutions will develop its EV management tools throughout the year, said Wise.

“Adding EV features in our fleet management software is only a first step, in the course of this year we will – with the feedback of our strong global customer base – further develop our EV management tools.

“Our goal is to use our experience and expertise in telematics to help fleets get the most benefit out of the needed transformation,” she added..

In June, the company announced that Webfleet Solutions is seeking expansion into company cars.

The EV vehicle tools are available to customers of Webfleet Solutions.

The new version also offers features to help fleet managers in their day-to-day business, including a new road type usage report.

The report gives insights into how a selected vehicle was used with the distance driven per road type and can help to decide for the best tyre types for respective vehicles.
