The start point for the best source of fleet information

EV charging explained

Date: 08 August 2014

As a growing number of businesses start to consider running electric cars
and vans that need to be plugged in, Tristan Young takes a detailed look
at the practicalities of operating a charged fleet.

So, you think your fleet would benefit from running some vehicles that you plug in and charge up, but where do you go from there? What do you need to know beyond the fact that your car won't go as far on a 'fill' as a liquid-fuelled car?

While many electric vehicle advocates push the benefits of driving or running cars that plug in, these same experts offer little in the way of practical advice on how to go about operating these vehicles and, vitally for fleets, how much they will actually cost to run.
