Small businesses predict electric fleets in 20 years

Small businesses predict electric fleets in 20 years

Two thirds of small businesses predict their fleets will be fully electric within the next 20 years, with 50% expecting this to happen in half that time, global data shows.

The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi LCV business commissioned this survey to gain insight into thousands of small business owners and decision makers globally and found that almost all (93%) of business owners or decision-makers responsible for 50 vehicles or more, consider environmental sustainability of high importance.

This development comes at a time when automakers are dramatically increasing their efforts to respond to a growing customer need for sustainable vehicles, as businesses prepare for tighter emissions regulations and seek ways to address climate change.

This latest research has shown that the higher the turnover of the company and the bigger the fleet, the more important sustainability is to them.

Ashwani Gupta, senior vice president of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi LCV business, said, 'These results show that the electrification of fleets is increasingly on the minds of our customers – not just for the financial efficiencies that EVs can deliver, but because environmental sustainability is clearly crucial to the future of their businesses. I'm impressed at how optimistic these fleet managers are about the speed in which their vehicles will be fully electrified.'
