Teletrac Navman launches electric vehicle evaluator, sustainability dashboard 

Teletrac Navman updated its alternative energy product portfolio by launching an Electric Vehicle Evaluator that will enable fleets to strategically plan, implement, and track the transition from internal combustion engine (ICE) to multi-fuel capabilities, the company announced in a news release.

Teletrac Navman’s EVE is an electric vehicle transition platform that utilizes telematics data and predictive analytics to build a plan that supports a fleet’s decarbonization goals. The platform provides intelligence for transition planning in three areas: feasibility and financial planning, as well as infrastructure design.

“Fleets all over the globe are facing pressures to change to low carbon energy types efficiently and cost-effectively, without disrupting business operations,” said Mayank Sharma, the company’s head of global product management & user experience, through the release. 

“We have designed EVE to help fleet managers navigate the journey to alternative energy by simplifying what can be a very complex process.”

While the feasibility planning tool helps to identify the vehicles suitable for transition to electric based on trip and cargo data and the optimum battery and charger types to use, the financial planning element provides a detailed cost analysis of the total cost ownership between EV and ICE vehicles, indicating which ones would be more cost-effective to transition, Teletrac Navma claims.

The infrastructure design tool models the most efficient charging infrastructure to support and sustain a transition plan for a fleet. It also factors in weather conditions, different charger powers, site charge fuse limits and varying base load.

Sustainability Dashboard

The launch of EVE is complemented by a new sustainability dashboard that enables fleet managers to monitor progress against their decarbonization targets once their energy transition has commenced.

The dashboard gives fleets a score out of 100, so fleet managers can see progress and simplify internal and external company reporting on their targets, and in particular their emissions. It provides a snapshot of savings in fuel costs and feeds in data from individual vehicles to help identify areas of improvement in driver performance that can impact emissions.
