Yesterday, the news broke that both Ford and GM are phasing out the internal combustion engine and are aiming toward on an all-electric future. In addition to Norway, France, the U.K. and others, China, with a severe air pollution problem, is pressuring the auto industry to make the switch, and now California is considering banning fossil-fuel powered vehicles.
At the recent AFLA Conference, we talked with a number of fleet service providers about the effect of the electric-powered fleet on their business models and on fleets themselves. In many cases, it is a revolution.
If you’re new to fleet or want to sharpen your skills, NAFA’s Essentials of Fleet Management Seminar – October 16-18, 2017 in Philadelphia – is still open for enrollment. This is a timely and perfect venue to talk with experts in the business about how you can position your fleet in the face of this revolution.
