Geotab has launched an electric vehicle analytics solution that is designed to help fleets find optimal usage of EVs.
The ezEV solution uses telematics data to assess where electric vehicles could be better utilized by fleets, which is part of Geotab's Marketplace’s growing portfolio of new solutions to help fleet manage their vehicles, according to the company.
Designed by Sawatch Labs, ezEV provides fleet managers with an assessment of individual vehicles in order to determine how an EV would perform following the same drive cycles and driving patterns of an existing vehicle, Geotab said. Each vehicle is then scored on its energy use, economics, and parking consistency in order to produce an overall EV suitability score.
This score is designed to enable businesses to determine financial savings, reduced fuel use, and reduced GHG emissions if existing vehicles were replaced with recommended EVs as well as to confidently determine when an EV would and would not be a good decision.
Sawatch Labs is an analytics firm that helps organizations of all sizes make informed, data-driven fleet management decisions.
