The Fleet platform supports vehicles with externally charged (non-hybrid) fully electric drivetrains from General Motors (model year 2017 and newer) and Iveco. Supported GM vehicles include:
- 2017 Chevrolet Bolt and newer
- 2022 GM Hummer and newer
- 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and newer
- All upcoming (post-2022) GM electric vehicles
This support includes Fleet’s conventional fleet management features such as vehicle tracking and routing, depot and base assignment, assignment of drivers to vehicles, maintenance tracking, scorecards, advanced reporting and vehicle InSight Alerts.
However, EVs (electric vehicles) require monitoring of additional metrics not used by traditional internal combustion engined vehicles. These include battery pack charging and discharging (time, location, duration, and type of charging); battery charge state to maximize usable battery cell life; and vehicle efficiency (distance per kWh).
See the summary below for a list of EV-specific features currently provided by Fleet for owners of GM and Iveco electric vehicles and fleets.
Electric Vehicle Features in Fleet
Fleet includes the following EV-specific features for electrified fleets:
- EV Charging Status on the Map and in the History Timeline: A lightning "Charging" icon is shown on the map when an electric vehicle is currently charging. This icon indicates in near real-time the vehicle status. The history timeline below the map, and the single history panel, also indicates exactly when, where and for how long your vehicles were in a charging state (shown in orange on the timeline). Hover over the charging period on the timeline to view detailed information about the charging speed and the vehicle’s electric fuel economy at the time.
You can create a PDF detailed history report from the single history panel by clicking the "View report" link at the top of the "History" tab. This report includes information about the vehicle's average electric fuel economy, battery state of charge as a percentage, device battery life remaining as a percentage, and remaining battery charge as a percentage.
- Vehicles List EV Data Columns: The Vehicles list includes several EV-specific data columns:
- EV Battery Range shows an estimate of the driving distance remaining in miles or kilometers.
- EV Battery Remaining shows the remaining charge in the vehicle battery, as a percentage.
- Average Fuel Economy Electric shows the average efficiency of the vehicle in miles or kilometers per kilowatt hour (kWh).
- Battery Charge shows the current charge of the vehicle battery, as a percentage.
- Battery State of Charge shows the current battery state of health, as a percentage (used to indicate how much of the battery pack's viable life remains).
- Electric Vehicle Battery Capacity shows the vehicle's battery capacity in kilowatt hours.
- Electric Vehicle Battery Charging shows whether the vehicle battery is currently charging or not.
- EV Recharge Type shows the charging type being used by the vehicle, when charging (for example, 120/240/400 Volts, also known as level 1, 2 or DCFC).
- Total EV Energy Used shows the total energy used by the vehicle over the current journey (from ignition on to ignition off) in kilowatt hours.
To filter the Vehicles list or the map to show only electric vehicles that are currently charging, open the filter (located in the top right corner of the map and list screens) and check the vehicle status box "Charging".
- KPI Scorecards: Configure a scorecard using any of the pre-defined EV-specific KPIs available (those starting with “EV” or “Electric” from the KPI drop-down menus under the “Columns” section), and then quickly see the status of your EV fleet over time from the dashboard. Note that support for GM and Iveco diagnostic data varies, as indicated in this table.
- EV InSight Alerts: Set up a standard Gauge Diagnostic InSight Alert from the Parameters tab using any of the EV-specific Diagnostic Parameters to receive alerts relating to distance driven, idle electric energy consumed, electric motor failures, charger power type, battery performance status and more. These alerts can be emailed or shown as a standard alert pop-up message in your browser.
- EV Reports: Standard reports for your EVs can be created using data from any of the scorecards and InSIght Alerts (described above) that you configure for your electric vehicles.
