A new service designed to help fleets adopt and manage EVs has been launched by fuel management firm TMC.
It says its TMC-e service can help fleets identify where they can deploy EVs, using data from its online system, app and via telematics feeds to analyse journey profiles, and provide ongoing analysis once they are up and running, measuring the vehicles' impact and identifying further opportunities for electrification.
It also covers electric charging reimbursement, taking domestic charging data and overlaying it with mileage data to pay back employees for business mileage, with TMC either providing payroll files to reimburse employees or arranging a credit to the driver's energy bill.
Reimbursement can either be using HMRC's AER rate, or at actual cost.
The system can also cover employees using public chargers, either via charge card solutions, or with drivers using TMC's online system to reclaim public charging costs for business mileage.
Existing TMC mileage capture and fuel services customers benefit automatically from TMC-e.
TMC managing director Paul Hollick said: "Although there is a lot of desire to go electric, many companies are asking for support on where to start.
"We help identify where EVs will work well and provide ongoing analysis to measure their effectiveness and highlight where else EVs could be deployed.
"We also manage the reimbursement of domestic and public charging - giving fleets the confidence and tools to get their electric ambitions underway."
