One truck powered by gas has gone the distance. Going green for fleet owners doesn’t have to mean electric
It would have been hard for anyone with a passing interest in cars to miss the progress of electric vehicles (EV) this summer. Volvo Cars started it by declaring it will phase out the internal combustion engine (ICE). The UK and French governments both announced they will ban diesel and petrol car sales from 2040, and Dutch bank ING predicted that all cars sold in Europe would be electric by 2035 anyway, thanks to government support and falling costs.
These plans and predictions are all about cars, so where does that leave fleet managers, who usually run a mix of cars, vans and freight vehicles? Where should the electric element come in and how can they maintain their environmental credentials across the whole fleet?
