The Fleet Electrification Report (Reports > Fuel & Energy > Fleet Electrification) helps you identify which light-duty vehicles in your fleet are most qualified for replacement with Electric Vehicles (EVs).
To determine whether or not a vehicle is suitable for electrification, this report uses the following major criteria:
Lifetime usage: You’ll likely want to replace your vehicles with the most mileage, first.
Average daily range: EVs in the market today can drive up to 200 miles on a single charge. To combat range anxiety, this report showcases vehicles that currently fit that range value on an average basis.
Estimated annual fuel savings: Based on the national average fuel cost, or your organization’s fuel cost number.
Average fuel efficiency: If your fuel economy is low, you can save a lot of money by going electric.
Max range: In order to minimize times in which your drivers get range anxiety, there is a cap on the max range, to ensure that drivers are not-as-stressed about charging their EVs during the day.
Estimated annual emissions saved: Based on the national average emissions per gallon of gas you would not use.
The following electrification methodology applies to light-duty vehicles (i.e. vehicles weighing less than 6,000 lbs):
Must have a minimum lifetime usage > 30,000 miles (since you typically do not want to replace newly-purchased vehicles)
Must have an average daily range < 200 miles, so that a vehicle can do a full day's work with one charge
Must meet 2 of the 6 criteria on lifetime usage, range, efficiency, or savings.
Samsara also currently removes pickup trucks from this evaluation.
The Fleet Electrification Report summarizes the qualifications of candidate vehicles below the criteria. To gauge whether vehicles as suitable for electrification, the report also calculates an Electrification Suitability score using the following scoring system:
Excellent: Meets 5-6 criteria
Good: Meets 3-4 criteria
Okay: Meets 2 criteria
