DriveElectric is helping organisations in the United Kingdom move to a cleaner, brighter, quieter future by switching to electric vehicles and away from diesel and petrol power.
Our expertise goes beyond just electric cars and electric vans too, our team has run numerous clean energy and charging projects over the years, helping to shape policy at a regional and national level. But even before we had the EV light bulb moment we've been helping businesses operate efficient fleets of vehicles, with a successful history stretching back to 1994, when we were known as Fleetdrive.
We have helped hundreds of organisations operate their fleets and we can help you do the same.
We know how tricky it can be to transition away from a diesel-powered fleet and into electric vehicles. But the good news is, it is getting easier and with our help we can smooth out most of the issues and barriers you are likely to face.
We have learned that the key to success is to concentrate on your drivers by winning their hearts and minds. If you can prove the benefits of an electric van to its driver then you’re more than halfway there – and let’s be honest, driving an electric van is a lot easier and healthier than driving a diesel van.
Other areas of expertise include charging strategy (taking in public, workplace and home charging), energy management, process and policy adoption and telematics analysis.
Whole life cost considerations
We always say don't just look at the headline lease figure when it comes to comparing an electric van with a diesel alternative. Our customers have found that in the long run an electric van is cheaper to run.
Whether through reduced maintenance, longer life, improved employee satisfaction or free access to London ULEZ and congestion zones, the comparison against diesel is won when you consider all costs associated with your fleet.
