Taking Charge: On the road to the EV future

Our latest research finds: 

  • 81% of medium-duty ICE vehicles have a daily average distance of less than 150 miles, indicating an opportunity for electrification. 
  • EVs could have sufficient range for 58% of locally operating medium-duty vehicles and 46% of locally operating heavy-duty vehicles. 
  • 56% of medium-duty vehicles never exceed 250 miles even on their longest day. 

Find out more about what fleet electrification can do for your organization in our study of 1.3 million connected vehicles.
