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 EVs 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.

Financial analysis

Will going electric actually save you money. If so, how much? Determine how your cost structure may change with the addition of EVs. Understand the total cost of ownership when switching to EVs.

Range assurance

Silence range anxiety for good. Find out which EVs in the market meet your fleet’s range requirements. This analysis takes charging times into consideration and if the battery will still cover your required range in extreme weather conditions.

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
