Here on the West Coast, we've had a particularly challenging year with fires, floods, and arctic cold like we've never experienced before. It's time we start doing something about it, and one way business owners can have a big impact is by choosing electric vehicles for their fleets. Electric vehicles (EVs) are slowly but surely becoming the new normal within the automotive industry. Not only does the technology allow you to significantly reduce your carbon footprint, it's also a more cost-effective option in the long run. Not to mention, when you consider electric vehicles for your industry fleet, you’ll find a plethora of valuable features you can utilize to ensure your business runs at its optimal level of efficiency.
Whether you’re in construction or catering, making electric vehicles apart of your fleet opens up more doors for your business. As more people and organizations acquire electric vehicles, companies will have chances to lift their revenues not only by selling more electric power and charging infrastructure but also by providing services that support the charging of EVs. While EVs do cost more than engine vehicles, their superior efficiency, the moderate price of electricity, and the high utilization of fleet vehicles allow fleet operators to quickly recoup the extra up-front cost of an EV and achieve a lower total cost of ownership. Provinces across Canada also offer incentives and rebates to businesses that choose EVs for their fleets, including free chargers, tax deductions, and an average of $6,500 in rebates per vehicle.
Some popular brands of electric vehicles have surfaced recently, many of which are ideal options for commercial fleets.
