As the focus on sustainability and lowering emission grows, electric vehicles (EV) have garnered a lot of attention. But does electrifying your fleet really bring any direct benefit to your company? Westward Industries has developed several lines of incredible EVs that not only reduce emissions, but also come with several other cost-saving benefits that aren’t immediately obvious. Let’s take a look.
Lower Operational Costs
Cutting straight to your bottom dollar, what makes a Westward EV really beneficial for any fleet? Naturally when weighing your options for your fleet it has to make sense from a financial standpoint. There’s really three ways in which adding an EV to your fleet can impact your cost.
- Up Front Cost: Electric Vehicles are more expensive up front than combustion-engined alternatives. This price however is often aided by tax credits and rebates and government incentives which can lower your purchasing price substantially.
- Reduced Fuel Costs: EVs are known for their efficiency, and Westward Industries EVs are no exception. Running solely on electricity is generally cheaper per mile than gasoline or diesel. Additionally, as charging infrastructure becomes more accessible and affordable, charging your fleet only becomes easier and more affordable.
- Maintenance Savings: Westward Industries EVs have fewer moving parts compared to traditional internal combustion engine vehicles resulting in less maintenance. There are no oil changes, and the brakes tend to last longer due to their regenerative braking system. Less maintenance cost means lower overhead and more revenue for your business.
Westward Industries Environmental Benefits
Understanding that pollution is largely what EVs are designed to combat, Westward Industries has developed an electric fleet that dramatically reduces emissions and noise pollution.
- Zero Emissions: Perhaps the most significant environmental benefit of Westward Industries EVs is their lack of tailpipe emissions. By running on electricity, these vehicles produce no harmful pollutants, contributing to cleaner air and reduced urban smog.
- Noise Reduction: Electric vehicles are notably quieter than their combustion engine counterparts, which contributes to a reduction in noise pollution in urban areas, improving the quality of life for both residents and workers.
Beyond cost savings and environmental advantages, Westward Industries EVs can enhance productivity for businesses:
- Versatile Design: Westward Industries offers a range of specialized EVs designed for various industries, including parking enforcement, security, and delivery. Their versatility allows businesses to choose the model that best suits their needs, optimizing efficiency.
- Quieter Operations: In urban settings, where noise regulations may apply, the quiet operation of Westward Industries EVs can be an asset by allowing for work to be done during mornings and evenings. This ensures that work can be carried out without disruptions or disturbances.
Incentives and Rebates
Many governments and municipalities offer incentives and rebates to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles. This can greatly reduce the cost of owning an EV.
Westward Industries Long-Term Sustainability
Built with longevity in mind, the durability and reliability of these vehicles can result in a longer service life compared to traditional vehicles. This durability greatly reduces the need for frequent replacements and associated costs, thus lowering overhead.
