Fleet Logistics UK launches new EV driver profiling tool

Date: 05 July 2021   |   Author: Sean Keywood

A new EV driver profiling tool has been launched by Fleet Logistics UK.

Embedded in the firm's Fleet Wizard car configurator, it is designed to help with electrification by guiding drivers through questions on subjects such as how many miles they drive, the types of journeys completed, and access to vehicle chargers.

The tool then guides the driver towards the optimum fuel choice, which may be full EV, plug-in hybrid, or in some cases still petrol or diesel.

Fleet Logistics UK and Ireland country head Sue Branston said: "Selecting the correct vehicles for your fleet is paramount in the success of any EV change or pilot programme.

"Firstly, part of the review is to discuss with your chosen vehicle manufacturers the opportunity to test their products in real world scenarios. A review may be required to consider manufacturers outside of your current policy with a view to assess their suitability and sustainability versus the need in the new normal.

"This can be done by benchmarking or a request for proposal (RFP) to determine available bonuses and any additional dealer discounts on top of the manufacturer discount percentage.

"It may also be relevant to review the acquisition method and maintenance approach for some fleet operators that have not considered this for a while.''
