Virtual Fleet Week, for your electric eyes only

2020 is the year to start electrifying your fleet. Fleet Europe wants to help you overcome the obstacles to do that by holding a Virtual Fleet Week from Monday 12 until Friday 16 October, dedicated entirely to fleet electrification.

For many years, the push for electrification has been accelerating, steered by legislative and governmental pressure, climate change, health awareness, the rising importance of CSR and expectations of new employees regarding efficient and emission-friendly mobility solutions.

The current COVID-19 pandemic which has a direct impact on health and safety and has stimulated a more conscious mobility pattern with reduced transportation/miles and home working is also impacting the search for fleet electrification.

This is why we are going 100% Electric and Connected in this first ever Fleet Europe Fleet Week. Have a look at the full programme below.

Learning webinar: the 2020-2021 EVs ready for your fleet

Monday, 12 October, 3pm CET - Register for this webinar

This webinar will give a full overview of all new models entering the market this year and next year, detailing the new technology they will have on board.

Driven by EU carbon reduction policy, OEMs are spawning electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles as if their future depends on it. Actually, it does. And the expanding offer makes it easier for the fleet manager to introduce EVs.

In this Learning Webinar you will discover the new models fit for your EV fleet, with insight into the evolution of the battery cost and the TCO parity between ICE and EV.

  • Moderated by Dieter Quartier of Fleet Europe
  • Presentation of the evolution of different EV powertrains (BEV; PHEV Hybrid) and current and future market positioning
  • View on the EV offer and new EV models
  • With Thomas Chretien, Chief Marketing Manager Nissan Ariya at Nissan Europe with presentation of Nissan Leaf and Nissan Ariya
  • Interview with Frost & Sullivan on battery cost evolution and TCO parity between ICEs and EVs
  • Q&A

This webinar is sponsored by Nissan Europe.

Deep dive Webinar: Electric cars expensive? Never judge by first appearance, go TCO

Tuesday 13 October, 3pm CET - Register for this webinar

The list price of an electric vehicle is in many cases higher than the price of its ICE brother. But cost-wise you will see that the picture has a slightly different colour and will change even more over time. In this webinar, you will get insights into the TCO set-up of an electric car and the TCO-comparison between EVs and ICEs. Tackling the challenges of your fleet electrification future is a process and TCO is a key tactical driver in this.

  • TCO in action between powertrains and countries
  • Deep dives on individual attention points linked to the two “hot” technologies of the moment
  • PHEV: charging vs fueling
  • BEV: home vs office vs public charging slow vs public fast
  • Expert Speakers:
    • Pieter Goossens – Manager Global Business Development
    • Thor Konings – International Account Director
    • Maarten Weijenberg - International Account Director

This webinar is sponsored by Athlon International.
