Webfleet: Connected fleets cut emissions up to 15 tonnes per vehicle

Bridgestone-owned fleet management solutions provider Webfleet revealed that electrifying commercial fleets in Europe remarkably impact decarbonisation. 

Presented in the first Electrifying Data report, aimed to map the commercial EV opportunity based on exclusive telematics data, figures show that electrifying commercial fleets in Europe save 15 tonnes of CO2 per vehicle on average, equaling 5,665 litres of fuel. 

The UK and the Netherlands are leading the CO2 cuts in Europe; both have reduced more than 13 tonnes of CO2 per vehicle on average. The average amount for Spain, France and Denmark is between 10-13 tonnes; in Germany and Poland, it is up to 10 tonnes of CO2, the Electrifying Data report says. 

Underlining the fact that the transport sector was responsible for the highest amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the UK in 2020, with 24%, Webfleet believes it is vital to support the transition from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to electric vehicles (EV) in fleets.

Providing exclusive telematics data is to reveal the true impact of becoming sustainable for fleets, as Webfleet wants to play an important role in the journey towards the zero-emission target, says Beverley Wise, Webfleet Regional Director for Bridgestone Mobility Solutions.

The use of Webfleet’s Fleet Electrification Report, which helps fleet managers and drivers to choose the right EV to replace an ICE, has increased 300% since last March, says Taco van der Leij, Vice President of Webfleet Europe: “So, it’s clear the electrification of fleets is top of mind for many businesses.”
