In Germany 60% of newly registered vehicles are used commercially. However, many companies are lacking the foundation to make an informed decision in favor of e-mobility. Furthermore, 76 % of fleet operators demand that electric vehicles must not be more expensive in their total cost of ownership (TCO).
Because of the lower operating costs compared to the higher acquisition costs, a high utilization is the key for an economic use. However, a single company often cannot guarantee the necessary utilization.
Using electric vehicles across fleets through intelligent ICT-based organization in order to optimize their utilization whether it be in municipal, public or private fleets.
Examine the specific needs of a fleet with regard to the use of electric vehicles by means of a simulation. Based on the identified routes the economics of electric vehicles are then calculated on a TCO basis and potential cross-fleet usage scenarios are identified. Uneconomical routes are investigated in the form of secondary use options of e-vehicles from third parties.
The results of the analysis are used as the basis for an operating model and service contract for the (partial) conversion to electric vehicles. The operation will be conducted by [ui!] in a test phase [ui!] and then taken over by an independent service company.
At the moment the test fleet is comprised of full electric vehicles in Berlin and the Rhine-Neckar area in south of Germany. The user of the fast charging electric vehicles include a city administration, medical institutions as well as the security company Securitas Germany, as a reference user.
