The BMW-owned fleet management company Alphabet has doubled its zero-emission fleet over the past year, to over 3,000 EVs. The company has seen a “dramatic increase” in corporate interest in EVs since the launch of its EV consultancy service AlphaElectric two years ago, and now has over 1,000 customers operating at least one EV in their fleet.
AlphaElectric provides advice and support to fleet managers on effective adoption of EVs (not only BMWs), covering fleet analysis, vehicle selection and charging infrastructure.
“It is not only proof that our EV vision is correct and that we were right to place our full backing behind electric vehicles, but also of the value that our AlphaElectric consultancy service brings to customers,” said Daniel St Claire, e-Mobility Manager at Alphabet. “Appetite among companies for electric cars and vans just keeps growing, especially as the price of EVs continues to drop and misconceptions are dispelled. As a result, in 2016 we expect to see the orders of electric vehicles continue to increase significantly.”
