Geotab talks electric vehicle strategies, working during the pandemic

No script? No plan? No problem. Welcome to Fleet Equipment Unscripted—the video interview series that connects you with the greatest minds in the heavy-duty trucking world.


For our first episode, I connected with Matt Stevens, vice president of electric vehicles at Geotab, to see how Geotab continues to support its customers in these strange pandemic times and then we dived into electric vehicle planning. The world will go back to normal one day, and fleets need to keep an eye on what’s coming down the line both economically and technologically.

Watch the video above to find out how telematics data can inform your electric vehicle plan (or to take a break from the Coronavirus coverage and listen to something fun).

I'll play devil's advocate to: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"--it might not be broken, but could it be better? Sure, your tried-and-true truck spec has worked for you for years, but the latest trucks have model year generations of refinements built into them. Whenever an OEM unveils a new truck with improved fuel efficiency percentages, the rub is that they're comparing the brand-new spec to their previous "best spec". Chances are, as a fleet manager, you're not replacing the truck you bought last year. You're replacing a truck that's five or six years old (if your lifecycles have returned to pre-pandemic normal).
