Training Your Drivers For Your Company's New Electric Vehicle Fleet

Posted on

Many businesses are making the c choice to upgrade the vehicles in their fleet to modern electric models. To help facilitate this change, you may want to enroll your drivers in an EV training program to help them learn more about the vehicles that they will be using. In particular, there are a handful of particularly important benefits that can come from completing this type of training program.

Ready Employees To Handle Recharging The Electric Vehicle

While it is common for businesses to install charging stations on their own property for their vehicles, there may be instances where your employees will simply have no choice but to stop and recharge their vehicles. Not surprisingly, this can be a very different experience from filling a car with gasoline. Luckily, an EV training presentation can help to provide your drivers with the knowledge that they will need to be able to effectively recharge their vehicles when they are running low on power.

Provide Training On The Advanced Controls And Other Features Of The Electric Vehicle

One of the most noticeable benefits of an electric vehicle can be the wide range of sophisticated and advanced features that it may provide to the driver or the occupants of the car. In particular, many of these vehicles may include driver assistance technologies that can assist the driver with operating the vehicle. While these features can make the car more comfortable and safer for the operator, they can be somewhat intimidating when a person is first acclimating to using these vehicles. For the best results, the EV training presentation should be targeted at the type of vehicles that you will be using in your fleet so that it can provide an accurate description and training information of the systems that are available to the driver.

Comply With The Requirements For Your Company's Insurance Carrier

Insuring your business's commercial vehicle fleet can be one of the largest monthly expenses that your firm may have to pay. Fortunately, there are many discounts that are available to businesses that provide safety training to their drivers. When choosing an EV training program for your drivers, you may want to check with your insurance carrier to determine whether this type of training could qualify for a discount as well as a list of the approved training programs that your company can use. These two steps will make it much easier to choose a training service that will meet these requirements so you can qualify for the discount.
