With diesel fuel prices rising everyone wants to know whether electric commercial vehicles are a viable alternative for their operations. With a range of commercial battery electric vehicles (BEV) coming to market and options for public and private charging, many fleets are asking if the time is right. However, each operation is different and no one solution fits all. Our panel brings together key stakeholders to discuss their experiences with commercial BEV adoption and how changes in market factors such as fuel costs should be incorporated into plans for adoption.
