Corporate EV fleets doubled in 2020
The number of electric vehicles operated by the companies which form part of the EV100 group – a collective of large companies which have committed to making their vehicle fleets electric by 2030 – doubled in 2020 to almost 170,000.
The Climate Group EV100 comprises companies including Siemens, Sky, Lloyds and AstraZeneca.
Sandra Roling, head of transport at the Climate Group, said: “Corporate uptake of electric vehicles is on a roll. Despite the uncertainty of 2020, the business community has made remarkable progress in transitioning its fleets. The EV revolution is underway.”
A report published by the Climate Group found that the number of EV100 companies committed to installing electric vehicle charging points (EVCPs) increased by 103% in 2020.
The report also found an 84% increase in the number of locations with charging already installed, to nearly 2,100, and the number of individual chargepoints installed has increased 79% to nearly 16,900.
