Enter GoMetro’s EV-FIT – an encompassing toolkit crafted to assist fleet owners and operators on their electrification journey. EV-FIT, or Electric Vehicle Feasibility, Implementation, and Transformation, embodies a holistic approach to fleet electrification.

 

Delving into EV-FIT: A Three-Phased Approach

Enter GoMetro’s EV-FIT – an encompassing toolkit crafted to assist fleet owners and operators on their electrification journey. EV-FIT, or Electric Vehicle Feasibility, Implementation, and Transformation, embodies a holistic approach to fleet electrification.

 

FEASIBILITY

The initial step involves understanding the feasibility of electrification for your fleet, requiring a detailed analysis of current operations, vehicle usage, and energy needs. EV-FIT utilizes advanced telematics data to assess your fleet’s readiness, identifying optimal vehicles and necessary infrastructure for a practical and beneficial transition.

 

IMPLEMENTATION

With a well-defined plan in place, EV-FIT guides you through the implementation phase. This includes selecting suitable EVs from an updated vehicle library, establishing the required charging infrastructure, and seamlessly integrating these components into your existing operations. Collaborations with OEMs, energy providers, and infrastructure specialists ensure access to top-notch resources and technologies.

 

TRANSFORMATION

The final phase focuses on unlocking the full potential of your electrified fleet. EV-FIT supports ongoing training for drivers and fleet managers, provides operational support, and utilizes data analytics to optimize performance. The ultimate objective extends beyond mere vehicle replacement to transforming fleet operations into models of sustainability, efficiency, and alignment with future transportation trends.

 

Why EV-FIT is Significant for UK Commercial Fleets

Driven by the UK’s ambitious environmental targets, especially the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles, fleet electrification stands as an urgent priority. EV-FIT confronts this challenge head-on, presenting a structured pathway to electrification that minimizes disruption and maximizes benefits. From reducing carbon emissions to lowering operational costs, EV-FIT is meticulously designed to make the transition to an electric fleet as smooth as possible.
