Range Management
When we think of electric cars we automatically think of the future of mobility, because this is exactly what it is. But, before jumping into the idea of using electric vehicles, it’s important to know the processes of management before including them into your fleet vehicles. Let’s explain the diagram above to get a better idea on how to manage electric fleet vehicles with multiple bookings. To put it plain and simple, you need to be able to monitor how much charge the battery has before allowing additional bookings to make sure no one is left without power during their trip. With the e-mobility integration within fleetster we can manage this for you by showing you the level of battery after additional booking to warn you if all the trips are possible or not.

After each trip, the car should be charged up until the next one. Allowing maximum charging time between trips will ensure that the car is ready for the next user on time. More often than not a booking is made in the middle of other bookings, getting in the way of the original plan. This is initially okay providing the battery remains above the minimum buffer limit before any planned trip.
