IBM proves enlightening drivers is key to electric vehicle take-up

Delegates at ACFO’s electric vehicle seminar heard from IBM’s fleet manager and ACFO director Phil Redman, who documented his experience of successfully running two electric Nissan Leafs on his fleet, both of which were used as daily commuting vehicles and for longer trips.

Redman initially arranged a six-month demonstrator loan of a Leaf. “There was only one week when that car wasn’t out” he said.

He made staff aware of their EV options via the company intranet and magazine and produced a separate tab for EVs on the company’s choice list to increase the chance of take-up. He also advised that considering where and when the vehicles would be charged was essential if they were to work as company vehicles, as it rarely happened at the firm’s offices.
