LAS VEGAS and TORONTO — Geotab Inc. is involved in the way electric vehicles are managed with its telematics and data intelligence solutions. Geotab’s platform reportedly provides near real time data on battery charge, range, energy and fuel usage and charging history for over 300 different EV makes and models.

Geotab announced this at its new Innovation and Research Hub in High Wycombe, England. This facility, which has been active since 2020, is dedicated to advancing the data intelligence required to support the electrification of the transportation sector at scale.

“We understand how the quality and richness of the data captured from the vehicle can define the success of analytics that support the fleet’s operations and sustainability program, which is why access to comprehensive data insights is critical,” added Neil Cawse, CEO of Geotab. “Our world-class EV support is a differentiator, and we are proud to lead the industry in this area.”

Despite the rapid growth of the EV industry, there is still a lack of official vehicle information standards, creating unique data challenges for fleet managers. Geotab offers comprehensive data insights that provide fleet managers with the information needed to make informed decisions for fleet electrification and sustainability goals, such as vehicle range, efficiency and state-of-charge. Without access to this data, fleets can face issues such as inefficiency, unexpected breakdowns, decreased productivity and an unsatisfactory electric vehicle experience.

“With EVs, data is vital from the outset. The lack of an industry standard means each EV model that is released could potentially require a new approach for accessing its data,” said Charlotte Argue, Senior Manager, Sustainable Mobility, Geotab. “With the full EV support that Geotab offers, we’ve ensured fleets get the insights they need to optimize their fleets, as they deploy and scale zero-emission vehicles in their operations.”
