EV Readiness Index
The largest single shift impacting the entire fleet and mobility industry is the move from internal combustion engines (ICEs) to zero emission electric vehicles (EVs). The Why for this global transition has long since been answered: public concern over climate change, regulatory pressure, varying fuel prices, corporate social responsibility and, increasingly, falling EV prices, have all made going electric the common sense choice in 2022.
What remains to be answered for many, however, are the How and the When. This is where things get complicated; the framework and circumstances that facilitate electrification differ significantly from state to state. That’s why this EV Readiness Index was developed. It provides a clear overview, across all 50 states (plus the District of Columbia), of five key factors for electrification: favorable state legislation and incentives, EV penetration,
