Why You Should Go Electric With Your Trucks

The cost to fuel and maintain gas or diesel vehicles adds up. An electric solution, however, can reduce those costs significantly. The cost of electricity is typically lower per mile traveled compared to the cost of gasoline or diesel fuel. Electric vehicle fleets often have lower fuel expenses. Electric vehicles also have fewer moving parts, requiring less frequent maintenance. Electric fleet owners report reduced service and repair expenses throughout the vehicle’s lifetime. 

This improved efficiency translates into lower energy consumption and reduced energy costs for EV owners.

In addition to a financial benefit, there’s an environmental component as well. Improved fuel efficiency of electric vehicles translates to lower energy consumption. Also, by reducing the number of gas-powered vehicles on the road, electric fleets can improve the overall air quality of our cities and communities.
