The Big Jump: Making the Switch to EVs
The transition to electric vehicles (EVs) is moving fast with government grants to support a stronger charging infrastructure and inventory. By 2035 California will no longer be selling fuel vehicles but it will take time for fleets to retire or transition their vehicles to electric. Mixed fleet management will be the way of the near future and fleets must find ways to simplify a very complex ecosystem for fuel + EVs. Keagan Russo and Carolyn Edwards of Fleetcor break down these changes.
