Auto manufacturers are investing in EVs for the consumer market—with battery-powered vehicles, hybrids and plug-in hybrids increasing in sales. As of 2023, there are more than 90 makes and models of Electric Vehicles available in Canada.
As major OEMs continue to roll out vehicles with longer range and higher performance, electrification will become a more practical solution for a broader range of fleet applications. These fleet-friendly electric pickup trucks, transit vehicles and others will give forward-thinking fleet managers new options as they craft their strategic plans.
While you may not be ready to begin electrification today, this is the perfect time to ensure you are optimizing the composition and performance of your fleet. Staying ahead of vehicle technologies–including EVs–and measuring their potential benefits to your organization is a critical component of any sound fleet strategy.
Of course, a big part of moving forward is knowing if there are electric vehicles–or other alternative fuel vehicles–that fit your fleet’s needs. The Canadian Government website is a source of valuable information, and a good place to start. Start you search now.
