Electric fleets

Thinking about electrifying your fleet? Now‘s a great time for organizations to develop their fleet electrification strategies. Electric options are readily available for many vehicle classes, with production of other classes not far off, and charging equipment suppliers offer a vast range of reliable and cost-effective solutions for fleets.

With significant fuel savings and less maintenance costs, there’s a strong business case for transitioning to electric fleets. Plus, B.C.’s an advantageous environment for going electric, with reliable, clean, affordable electricity, and a relatively moderate climate that’s ideal for EV performance.

If you’re ready to get started with your fleet electrification plan – from estimating your return on investment to mapping out your charging infrastructure – we have resources to support you.

Follow our fleet electrification guide
