How does the range of an electric vehicle and an ICE vehicle differ?

EVs aren’t the only vehicles that suffer from ice cold, winter conditions. ICEVs face their own challenges in the cold that weaken vehicle performance and fuel efficiency.

Can electrification have a negative impact on fleet performance?

Even when the right vehicles for your fleet become available, there is still the question of whether they are truly the better option. Fleet managers must justify that EVs would perform at the same level as their current ICE models.

should we be worried about ev battery degradation

For EV drivers, the main concern from the day the vehicle is driven off the lot is battery degradation. A degraded battery suffers permanent damage that reduces the energy capacity of the battery and the amount of power it can deliver.

Should I use telematics to track EVs? | Utilimarc blog

The benefits of connecting a fleet with telematics are pretty much indisputable. With such a deep collection of vehicle and driving insights, managers can dig into data to identify waste reduction opportunities and optimize performance. However, as many switch to electric vehicles they are wondering, are telematics just as useful for EV fleets?

Will temperature impact EV range?

Just as with any battery-operated item, there is an optimal operating temperature for EVs. Because of this, fleets operating in areas with extreme weather must keep this in mind during the peak of harsh winter and summer months.

Will take home vehicle policies remain prevalent after the pandemic?

Take-home policies are a common consideration for fleet mangers of police departments, emergency services and taxi companies. There can be many benefits to keeping vehicles out on the road instead of parked in a company garage overnight, and can help employees save on both costs and time.

Should you be cross training fleet technicians and fleet mechanics?

More often than not, companies cannot afford to slow down operations when a key employee is out of office. For this reason, cross-training employees is a great way to ensure that the show goes on.

What You Need to Know About Lithium Ion Battery Degradation for EV Fleets

There are many factors to consider when it comes to making EVs more sustainable at every life stage. When broken down from raw material extraction to vehicle disposal, is clear to see that EV’s zero-emissions claim is really only true in operation.

Can Thermal Monitoring Reduce Your Carbon Emission Output? | Utilimarc Blog

With EVs requiring such high processing power and fast charging times, battery temperature is a common concern and reason for accelerated degradation. High temperatures cause irreversible damage to batteries, ultimately affecting the battery’s state of health, performance and safety.
