Benchmarking electric vehicle policies - a Fleet News survey

A new Fleet News survey will offer fleets the opportunity to benchmark their electric vehicle policies against their peers.

The ‘Transition to Electric’ survey, in association with BP, asks fleet decision-makers a series of questions about:

  • their current electric vehicles, including number of vehicles on fleet and on order
  • funding policies
  • the catalyst for change
  • charge point infrastructure
  • major challenges faced and how soon they will make the switch to EV for both cars and vans.

The quick-fire multiple-choice survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete and will give Fleet News and the fleet sector a valuable snapshot of the major EV challenges over the coming years.

At the end of last year, a Fleet News survey completed by more than 600 fleet decision-makers showed widespread dissatisfaction at the Government’s planned ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans from 2030. It showed that fewer than a third (29%) agreed with the implementation date for cars.

One-in-five fleets (21%) would have preferred the ban for cars to be introduced from 2035, with a similar number (22%) suggesting a start date of 2040 – the original date chosen by the Government.

How the fleet sector is transitioning to electric vehicles

Take our quick-fire survey to help Fleet News reveal how quickly and smoothly the fleet sector is making the transition.

The results and analysis will be published across a two-part feature in the May and June editions of Feet News.
