Developing Your Fleet – Light and Heavy Duty Considerations

By 2025, 40% of procured light-duty vehicles must be EVs, and in 2030 that percentage will jump to 75%. Procurement of medium-duty vehicles must be 30% in 2030 and 55% in 2035. Ground transportation fleets ranging from utilities to e-commerce, to food and beverage are considering making the switch, with some industries converting faster than others. This session will cover key considerations that play a role in light and medium-duty fleets such as economics, workforce needs, infrastructure, incentives, and EV strategy rollouts.
