Electrification of commercial vehicles has recently grown as EV technology becomes more accessible, governments provide incentives, and companies look to become more environmentally conscious while saving on transportation and diesel costs. As more manufacturers enter the market, demand for not only the vehicles, but an infrastructure to support such vehicles has also risen. However, many companies interested in adopting this technology for their commercial fleets still have a lot to consider about when and how to invest and make this transition.
In this insightful interview SCI’s VP of Transportation, Guy Toksoy, talks with Frans Tjallingii, the CEO and Co-founder of 7Gen to get an insiders view on charging infrastructure deployment and fleet electrification. They discuss the challenges and opportunities in electrifying medium and heavy-duty fleets, including:
- Who should transition their commercial fleet to EV?
- What’s the typical investment horizon for transitioning a fleet to EV?
- What are the pros and cons of a purchase model vs lease model?
- How will the charging infrastructure grow to help support the transition to EV fleets?
