In an NPR article, Guidehouse explains the expected uptick in all-electric fleets for corporations and municipalities
As electric cars become more popular, experts believe corporations and municipalities will also begin transitioning to all-electric fleets.
In an NPR article, Guidehouse’s Ted Walker, partner, said that while electric vehicles (EVs) currently account for less than 1% of company fleets, that number is expected to rise 12%, with several factors pushing companies toward adoption within the decade.
Some of these factors include a new interest in sustainability, government pressure, and lower long-term costs.
"Electric vehicles are going to have a higher purchase price, but there's a lower maintenance, lower fuel cost," Walker explained.
Where individuals might focus on the sticker shock, a company is more likely to consider the lifetime cost of the vehicle, he said.
