The benefits associated with owning electric vehicles (EV) are leading to cities replacing the existing fleet of gas-powered vehicles with newer electric vehicles such as in school, public safety, and transit application.
Goals and Objectives
The goal is to eliminate tailpipe emissions leading to climate change, promote zero-emission powertrain technology with a minimal maintenance cost, and power vehicles with sustainable and renewable power sources.
Hardware: EV fleet charging infrastructure such as DC fast charging and battery swapping technology and secondary renewable power generation technology like solar and wind
Software: EV fleet management software and load balancing software
Use Case Summary
EV fleets are zero-emission and high-efficiency alternatives to conventional fleets and best suited for public transit and school busses, which involve extensive idling and city driving with stop-and-go traffic. The instant torque delivery is also a key benefit in public safety application.
