Electric Vehicle Fleet Implications And Analysis

Report Number



Alternative Fuel Vehicles


This report evaluates the implementation and effectiveness of electric vehicles (EVs) used in fleet operations. The report reviews regulatory, operational and expense considerations and provides a review of current use and applications. Many classes of vehicles are included in this report, including Class 1 motorcycles and Class 8 semi-trucks; in total, twelve different classes and applications are reviewed. The report reveals a broad spectrum of current usage and a promising future for zero-emissions electric vehicles. The report identifies the programs, incentives and legislative mandates that encourage the expansion of EV fleet use, and how these programs may increase overall rates of market penetration and encourage new applications. The study focuses on Battery-Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs); collectively known as Plug-In Electric Vehicles (PEVs). Some vehicles can have a large impact, some much smaller; collectively they work to make a significant difference in fleet operational efficiency, and positive environmental and health impacts.
