Fleets using EVs “cut carbon by 15 tonnes” per vehicle

New data has shown that European fleets using EVs have cut their carbon emissions by more than 15 tonnes of CO2 per vehicle.

The information from Webfleet, Bridgestone’s fleet management solution, also shows a fuel saving of around 5,665 litres. The firm published the findings in its Electrifying Data report, which maps the commercial EV sector using telematics.

Speaking about the findings, Beverley Wise, Webfleet Regional Director for Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said: “The decarbonisation of the transport sector sits at the very heart of our collective ambitions to tackle climate change.

“Fleet businesses have been leading the charge in the transition from ICE to EV vehicles, and this data reinforces the impact they can have in helping to deliver a more sustainable future.

“Although electrification is gathering pace, it remains, however, a significant change management undertaking. Dedicated fleet management solutions such as Webfleet can play an important role in supporting fleets as they target net zero.”

Taco van der Leij, Vice President of Webfleet Europe added: “The significant CO2 savings shown in the Electrifying Data report emphasise how electrifying your fleet can have a significant environmental impact.

“We want to show all fleets that making the move to electric mobility is a game-changer when it comes to transport decarbonisation.”
