Choosing to electrify your commercial fleet is a large-scale process. However, ten companies are taking the lead and showing other businesses how to successfully transition from fossil-fuel-powered trucks and cars to electric vehicles (EVs).

Paying attention to how these organizations completed their fleet electrification process will help other companies successfully make the switch to EVs. Here’s a brief look at the ten organizations electrifying their commercial fleets.

Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport owns one of the largest commercial electric fleets in the United Kingdom. The fleet includes 50 Jaguar I-PACEs capable of providing the airport with an estimated 1,000 chauffeur-driven rides. Electric vehicles are also being employed on runaways to support and assist in ground operational tasks.


BrightDrop, a General Motors-owned business, is helping FedEx meet its commercial fleet electrification goals. The delivery giant is using electric vehicles for the last stage of their logistics operations. BrightDrop delivered 150 of its Zevo 600 model EVs in 2022 and is planning to add another 2,500 electric vehicles.
