What is the EVSA?

Our EV Suitability Assessment offers EV adoption recommendations by matching your existing fleet telematics data to real-world EV performance data. Find out which EV’s can meet your range requirements, and make the most financial sense, to help make your electrification transition as seamless as possible.

The EVSA analyses your fleet’s telematics data over a period of 6 to 12 months, and creates an electrification recommendation based on each vehicle’s distinctive driving patterns. The recommendation takes into consideration available EVs in the local market, EV performance in extreme weather conditions, as well as the financials related to procuring the EVs.

Our best fit analysis identifies which of your vehicles are the best candidates for replacement by EVs. Analysis includes vehicle type, range capability and projected savings

Support for the largest set of EV models

We have your entire fleet covered with support for the largest set of EV makes and models available including passenger, light to heavy goods vehicles and buses. Unlike conventional vehicles, EVs do not follow mandatory telematics data standards, making data access a challenge. Working directly with manufacturers, we have developed unique capabilities to access critical EV data, ensuring your EVs will have strong data support today, and in the future as you grow your electric vehicle fleet. Operate your EVs with confidence as there are no data gaps in your reporting and your performance questions are answered using the world’s largest EV dataset.

Benefits of managing your electric vehicle fleet with Geotab

  • Supports the largest set of EV models, including passenger, light to heavy goods vehicles and buses
  • Monitor both EVs and non-EVs in the same platform, reviewing fuel and EV energy usage and directly comparing performance with equivalent fuel efficiency (Mpg-e)
  • Get insight into battery use and identify if any PHEVs are running solely on conventional fuel
  • View real-time data on your electric vehicle fleet’s battery charge percentage and charging status with live map functionality

Fuel and EV energy usage report

Review both fuel and EV energy usage. This helps answer questions such as the typical electric range and the performance of electric fleet vehicles compared to fuel vehicles. This report provides insight into battery use -- specifically is it being maximised and identifying if any of the PHEVs are running solely on conventional fuel.

EV charging report

Quantify the environmental benefits of switching to EVs. Find out how much your fleet’s carbon emissions will go down as well as the overall reduction in fuel compared to the fleet’s actual current stats.

Map functionality

Now includes real-time data on battery charge percentage and charging status. Real-time battery charge percentage helps you identify which EVs/PHEVs in your fleet have the most (or least) battery charge so you can dispatch the nearest vehicle with enough battery charge to get the job done. Real-time charging status provides a view of which vehicles are actively being charged at any given time.



Commonly asked questions

An electric vehicle suitability assessment (EVSA) offers EV adoption recommendations by matching your existing fleet telematics data to real-world EV performance data. Geotab’s EVSA analyses your fleet’s telematics data over a period of 6 to 12 months, and creates an electrification recommendation based on each vehicle’s distinctive driving patterns.

The recommendation takes into consideration available EVs in the local market, EV performance in extreme weather conditions, as well as the financials related to procuring the EVs. Our best fit analysis identifies which of your vehicles are the best candidates for replacement by EVs. Analysis includes vehicle type, range capability and projected savings.
Telematics solutions provide access to a rich set of data points that can be used to refine the accuracy of EV assessments. An EVSA can use location information to get data on the local terrain where vehicles are driven. This data can be correlated to outside temperatures to figure out when to factor in climate control systems when modeling the EV battery capacity.

More advanced models can look at driving behavior parameters such as speed, hard acceleration and braking to further refine the estimated range of an electric vehicle under the same driving patterns. With Geotab’s support, we can help make your transition as seamless as possible.
EVSA stands for electric vehicle suitability assessment. It is a tool that helps fleet managers create a blueprint for electrification. The EVSA delivers the data analysis needed to make the case to transition a fleet to electric in a way that makes sense for the organisation's budget and time frame.
A key benefit of an electric vehicle suitability assessment is that it can save fleet managers time by making it easy to look up EVs and compare them based on factors such as:

• Retail price
• EV type (Battery Electric vs. Plug-in Hybrid)
• Vehicle class
• Battery capacity/range
• Local availability
• Maintenance schedules
• Charging speeds
An electric vehicle fleet is a company or organisation that utilises electric vehicles as part or all of their fleet vehicle inventory. Electric vehicle fleets are made up of a variety of vehicle types including hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), battery electric vehicles (BEV) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV).
There are many advantages to going electric. These include:
• EVs may help keep your employees and assets safe
• Fleet electrification may help improve your bottom line
• Electric vehicles may improve quality of life
