Navigant and eIQ Mobility offer turnkey electric fleet deployments to utilities and corporations

News

Navigant Consulting, Inc. and eIQ Mobility, Inc. announced that they have entered into a strategic alliance to provide turnkey electric vehicle fleet as a service (eFaaS) solutions to clients across North America and Europe.

In the US today, fleet operators spend more than $200 billion annually operating and maintaining vehicles, of which less than 1% are currently electrified. As efforts to decarbonise the global transportation sector gain momentum, the shift to electrified transportation has become a key component. According to Navigant, switching from conventional vehicles to EVs can reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as operating costs.

“EVs often have a lifetime cost advantage, but fleet conversion can be a challenge and integration can be complex,” said Jan Vrins, leader of Navigant's global Energy practice. “Navigant and eIQ Mobility can help simplify the process through eFaaS, offering our clients a seamless service provider for leasing EVs and procuring EV charging stations in bulk on a per-mile basis, resulting in immediate savings.”

Navigant and eIQ Mobility will work with utilities and commercial and industrial clients to streamline electrified fleet deployments. The alliance plans to pilot a turnkey guaranteed-cost-per-mile contract that bundles EVs, charging infrastructure, energy, energy management, maintenance, performance tracking, and sustainability reporting.

“Fleets in North America represent a massive market of over 300 billion miles per year that is on the cusp of electrification, but fleet executives need to find solutions to reduce risk in this transition,” said Sila Kiliccote, CEO of eIQ Mobility. “That's exactly what eIQ Mobility is doing with our data-driven decision tools and eFaaS solutions. Our existing major fleet customers are very excited. And with Navigant, we can dramatically expand our customer base and execution.”

The alliance combines Navigant's innovative research and consulting work in the areas of EVs and mobility, and eIQ Mobility's machine-learning technical and economic feasibility planning tools, which have already been applied to 13 major US fleets, analysing over 200 million miles traveled.

“Transportation makes up 29% of US greenhouse gas emissions,” said Ted Walker, Managing Director at Navigant. “To tackle growing emissions from the transportation sector, we will start with light-duty vehicles, but expect to quickly move into delivery and services fleets, in particular medium-duty vehicle fleets, which may offer an optimal solution to curb emissions in the near term.”
