AlphaElectric — Alphabet’s EV Fleet Selection & Management Service

AlphaElectric — the electric vehicle consultancy service launched by the company car company Alphabet — now has a fleet of over 3000 vehicles, according to recent reports. This means that the company has more than doubled its electric fleet in just the last year.

The increase in electric vehicle (EV) fleet numbers for Alphabet was mostly the result of a “dramatic” increase in corporate interest since AlphaElectric was launched around 2 years ago.

Alphabet now has over more than 1000 customers that are operating at least one EV in their fleet — most, of course, operating notably more than simply one EV. Clients include Panasonic, West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust, and Gnewt Cargo, amongst others.

The e-Mobility Manager at Alphabet, Daniel St Claire, commented that the company had surpassed its targets for 2015:

“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. 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.”

“AlphaElectric helps fleet customers enhance their overall business mobility mix to include EVs that support their traditional fleet,” he continued. “Alphabet’s in-house e-Mobility experts provide comprehensive advice and support to fleet managers on effective adoption of EVs, covering a range of areas from fleet analysis and vehicle selection to charging infrastructure and solutions to cover occasional long journeys. The service is marque neutral, ensuring businesses have the right solution and vehicle mix for individual business mobility needs.”

The manager also noted that the company is currently working to combat common misconceptions amongst potential clients about “range anxiety.”
