Vehicle Range

Great strides have been taken in ensuring EVs have the best range possible, with many electric cars boasting a range of over 300 miles. However, you need to consider the mileage your fleet averages on a daily basis and think about how charging will fit around this.

Charging Time

Fitting the time to charge in amongst your busy fleet schedule can be a problem for some drivers. However, it is generally best practice for your drivers to take a break every 2 hours. These breaks are a great chance to charge you EV up.

Where To Charge Your Fleet

Where you charge your fleet can make a fundamental difference in how viable your e-fleet strategy is. There are three main options for charging, at work, at home or on the go. Each has its unique advantages and limitations.

Charging An Electric Fleet

When it comes to EV charging, there are several factors to consider. Can you charge your EV at home? Do you have off-street parking? Or perhaps you are interested in government grants for electric charging points. At Toomey Leasing Group we can help you find the best option for you and your business.
