3 min read

Uber has launched an EV campaign labeled “Green Future”. Their goal is to be an emission free company by 2030. Their untraditional fleet is incentivized to go all electric by offering an extra dollar per drive without emissions. 

They are pushing their drivers to make the switch. Uber along with many others are making moves to electrify their own fleets. But why are they trading traditional vehicles for all electric fleets?

As electric vehicles grow more popular across the globe, the need for infrastructure grows more apparent. Installations are ongoing and now there are over 130,000 EV charging ports across the country. With EV charging infrastructure all across the U.S, companies are now, more than ever, able to invest in Electric Fleets to save energy and costs.

What are Electric Fleets?

Electric Fleets offer a variety of capabilities. They can be light, medium, or heavy duty vehicles. With quiet power, EV fleets are able to produce the same, if not better performance as their counterparts.

Companies that need a vehicle fleet for their day-to-day business should consider electrifying the process. They are becoming so relevant in the United States, that it is estimated that 30% of vehicles on the road in 2025 will be electric.

Why Electrify Your Fleet?

Electric fleets offer long-term benefits. They cut costs with the switch from fuel to electricity. The percentage of breakdown repairs are much lower on EV fleets than other vehicles. With the growth of charging infrastructure, refueling will soon be as easy as going to a gas station.

Looking at the cost efficiency of these vehicles is important. Light duty electric fleets average 3 cents per mile while current gas mileage averages 65 cents per mile. No matter the state of the economy, EVs will stay relatively reasonable compared to normal fuel based vehicles.

Along with cost benefits, there are sustainable differences between these electrified fleets and fueled vehicles. EVs offer low to zero emissions, this will help to meet sustainability objectives of your company. 

With the growth of the EV industry, many companies are taking the risk with less concern. Yes, gas and diesel stations are more accessible but with government assistance, EV charging is becoming more prominent across the country. 

The Alternative Fuels Data Center is a great resource for those ready to plan for an all electric future. There you can locate charging centers by types and geographical areas. With the help of Rogers Electric, there will continue to be more chargers added to the map.
