Reflex Vehicle Hire has launched a new service aimed at helping fleets take on electric cars and vans.
EV:IE (Electric Vehicle Information Exchange) uses data about a company’s fleet and journey patterns to identify cars and vans that could transition to plug-in technology immediately and also helps to create a longer-term transition plan.
Lisa Spong, sales director at Reflex Vehicle Hire, said: “EV:IE is the result of more than a year of discussions with fleet operators.
“It empowers a conversation between fleets, management and suppliers about the future, so businesses can prepare for 2030 and beyond.
“EV:IE saves managers hours of work trawling through data: instead we provide an immediate vision of the future, with vital insights on fleet transition without the need for extensive additional analysis or research by under-resourced fleet departments.
“Our innovation provides a solid foundation on which to build the future of fleet, allowing manager to maintain their focus on day-to-day operation of safe and efficient vehicles.”
It focuses on three areas: range, recharging and cost.
The service also features an environmental impact summary, with a full calculation of potential CO2 savings from making the switch.
Aaron Cawrey, head of fleet, added: “EV:IE is the latest stage in our campaign to support the industry’s transition while ensuring fleets remain safe and efficient, whichever fuel they use.”
