Electrification

Electrification is happening now

The transition to electrified vehicles is accelerating thanks to a mix of multiple factors that directly impact your mobility strategy:

electrification
  • Growing concern about air pollution and climate change 
  • Increasing focus on corporate CO2 emission reduction objectives 
  • Evolving legislation, regulation and attractive government incentive policies
  • Technology readiness and increased range capacity 
  • A broad range of vehicles across all categories, including vans, with increasingly competitive pricing
  • Expanding charging infrastructure 

The world is changing as we know it and your fleet needs to change with it. Your challenge is to successfully make this transition for your company and our goal is to make it simple for you.

 

Our electrification strategy

As a first mover in  powertrain transition, we intend to lead the market in the shift to low emission vehicles. We truly believe that the future is electric. 

To make this possible, we aim to increase our share of electric vehicles in new car deliveries over the next decade to support our strategic development plan, Move 2025, and beyond:

30-3 50-2

 

Our goal is to make this transition simple and accessible thanks to our global Electric Vehicle Programme, energy transition advisory support and expertise, targeted partnerships and all-inclusive EV offering. 

 

EV experience and expertise make the difference

Making the switch to electric requires rethinking the way you operate. In 2019, we launched an Electric Vehicle Programme to address the entire electric vehicle value chain across the company. 

This programme aims at consistently addressing and adapting to the challenges raised by the powertrain transition by reviewing internal processes, modifying business policies and procedures, acquiring new knowledge about the electric vehicle ecosystem, innovating our service offerings and onboarding new partners. 

Our goal has been to fundamentally change our business model to adapt to electric vehicles and facilitate adoption.

Getting your EV strategy right

Each company is unique, and no mobility policy is the same. We provide tailored support across all aspects of the electric journey to adapt your mobility policy and help you manage the energy transition by addressing key aspects: 

  1. Identify the right powertrain for the right driver
  2. Set electrification objectives
  3. Provide an attractive electric vehicle offering
  4. Manage charging infrastructure requirements
  5. Boost electric vehicle adoption
  6. Monitor progress with EV data-metrics and fleet reporting 

 

Electrification doesn’t happen overnight, but you can get it right if you do your homework.

Switch on step by step

The powertrain transition is a complex process and represents the biggest challenge the automotive industry has had to face. As a fleet manager, you will inevitably be faced with the following questions:

  1. Why should I electrify my fleet?
  2. How do I electrify my fleet? 
  3. How do I encourage EV adoption in my company?

To address the various aspects of electrification and troubleshoot some of the challenges that may arise, we regularly produce quick reference guides “EV Basics”, dedicated Q&As and other related articles on a regular basis. 

This section is updated on an ongoing basis – so watch this space!
