Not only do small fleet owners face very high costs and lots of planning. There is also a huge gap in education around the benefits of the transition. That, what the process looks like, and what’s actually possible for a successfully transitioning fleet.
Moreover, the website is going to be updating continuously say to feature the latest zero-emissions vehicle industry news. They provide educational information about electric trucks, how they work, where to find them, and how to implement them into small fleets today. As the platform grows up, Calstart will feature fleet electrification success stories.
