eIQ Mobility, Navigant to Launch Electric Vehicle Fleet as a Service
In the U.S. today, fleet operators spend more than $200 billion annually operating and maintaining vehicles, of which less than 1% are currently electrified.
Navigant Consulting and eIQ Mobility have entered into a strategic alliance to provide turnkey electric vehicle fleet as a service (eFaaS) solutions to clients across North America and Europe.
In the U.S. today, fleet operators spend more than $200 billion annually operating and maintaining vehicles, of which less than 1% are currently electrified. As efforts to decarbonize the global transportation sector gain momentum, the shift to electrified transportation has become a key component. According to Navigant, switching from conventional vehicles to EVs can reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as operating costs.
Navigant and eIQ Mobility will work with utilities and commercial and industrial clients to streamline electrified fleet deployments. The alliance plans to pilot a turnkey guaranteed-cost-per-mile contract that bundles EVs, charging infrastructure, energy, energy management, maintenance, performance tracking, and sustainability reporting.
The alliance combines Navigant’s innovative research and consulting work in the areas of EVs and mobility, and eIQ Mobility’s machine-learning technical and economic feasibility planning tools, which have already been applied to 13 major U.S. fleets, analyzing over 200 million miles traveled.
