Fleet Evolution and Aston University team up for EV survey

Date: 16 December 2021   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Salary sacrifice and fleet management company Fleet Evolution is working with Aston University on a research project into current perceptions of EVs.

The study is open to participants including fleet and transport managers and drivers, and is designed to gauge views on electric cars and charging infrastructure, as well as looking to highlight gaps in current product ranges and charging networks.

It asks participants about their current vehicle and mileage, and reasons why they might not want an EV, as well as covering issues such as home charging and clean air zones.

Fleet Evolution founder and managing director Andrew Leech said: "There are still plenty of misconceptions around EVs, particularly the availability of charge points and the extent of the charging networks.

"One respondent said that there were no public chargers near his location, but when I Google mapped it, there was a 50kW charger just a three-minute walk away.

"There is still a general lack of knowledge about EV charging, the costs involved, the ranges that can be driven and the costs involved.

"We hope this study will highlights some of the misconceptions around EVs and help increase awareness and knowledge around the process of going electric, and we will be publishing the results to help that education process."

The survey is available here.
