Business case information

Assessing the business case is critical to making a decision about using electric vehicles in your fleet. Some of the things to think about are;

  • What are the up-front costs?
  • What are the electricity costs?
  • What is the pay-back time?

The business case will vary from user to user, and depend on which vehicles you need and how you use them. 

Feedback from a trial of electric vehicles at the airport may also help you develop your own business case.

Please be aware that costs will vary between suppliers and over time.
