5. Boost driver safety and retention

One of the lesser known upsides of fleet electrification is the benefit for drivers. EVs are quieter and enable one-pedal driving, since releasing the gas pedal engages regenerative braking that not only slows the vehicle but recharges the battery in the process. Fleet EV drivers report less fatigue compared to driving a conventional vehicle.

Electric vehicles are proven to lead to large air pollution benefits, and reduce one’s exposure to harmful pollutants such as diesel (which can cause respiratory conditions like asthma), fine particulate matter and carbon dioxide. 

All of this is healthier for drivers and, once they’ve driven an EV at work, they’re less likely to go back to the old way.
