Summary

Over the next five years commercial fleets will begin to invest in electric vehicles as they attempt to reduce transport costs.

More than 125,000 new electric vehicles will be sold in Western Europe between 2017 and 2022 as vehicle prices fall as more models are released to the market and recharging networks expand across Europe, making electric vehicles a viable option for commercial use. With electric commercial vehicles becoming more common and many Western European countries banning the sale of fossil fuel vehicles from 2030, card operators need to invest in electric vehicles services.

In Western Europe the average CRT vehicle has about 1.3 fuel cards as companies attempt to maximise the card acceptance networks and services offered by multiple fuel card operators.
