It seems like every fleet today is searching for a simple answer to their sustainability concerns. Whether that be exploring alternative fuels, using data analytics to minimize waste, or phasing out internal combustion engine vehicles - it’s pretty clear that there is no quick fix. Especially as each fleet is unique in its operation and needs.
And sustainability is complicated. We all know I love sounding a bit like a broken record on this topic – so if you’ve heard this before, bear with me, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Sustainability is multi-faceted. Truly. And we’ll be digging into this topic in a very near-future episode.
For those opting to phase out ICEVs, the go-to alternative is typically electric vehicles. There are nearly 100 different models of EVs on the market today and the promise of electric pick-up trucks in the near future is an exciting prospect as well. For fleets with heavier duty vehicles, however, EVs will not be an option for a very long time.
Another technology being explored and invested into by OEMs is hydrogen-powered vehicles. There is a ton of potential for using the most abundant element on Earth to power vehicles, though the idea has not become mainstream as of yet.
