Creating An On-Demand Electrified Mobility Ecosystem: What Will It Take?

The electrification of private cars, commercial fleets and public transportation is inevitable. There’s a global movement for a cleaner, more sustainable world, and EV transport is a crucial part of that vision.

It will take a combination of regulation and incentive to move the world in that direction. While the savings in energy and maintenance already can make the switch to electric cost-effective, sweetening the deal with an incentive makes it an easier decision for fleet operators and transit agencies.
