You need to plan the integration of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) into your fleet over time. This is not something that happens immediately, transitioning your standard fleet vehicles takes planning, strategy, education, and time.
High-level examination of goals, timelines and feasibility of converting your fleet.
More comprehensive & detailed examination, specific plans on integrating hybrid/electric/hydrogen vehicles into your fleet.
Execution of the plan design.
You've started the pilot, now it's time to focus on gathering data and analyzing to optimize and make long-term decisions.
One of the most important decisions you’ll make on your journey to a zero emission fleet is selecting a fleet management partner. Selecting the right partner upfront is crucial to scaling your fleet quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
Sustainable fleet management solutions
Reducing emissions won’t impact your fleet's productivity. We offer you the solutions with the right technology. We’ll consider your location, geography, vehicle’s purpose, and range requirements.
Acquiring vehicles with less emissions doesn't have to be pricey. We assist you in decreasing the acquisition cost of vehicles and charging infrastructure by utilizing all available government incentives.
Zero-emission vehicles have different lifecycles from gas-powered ones. We conduct practice-based studies to anticipate and identify the total cost of ownership (TCO) for various vehicle types.
It's not just a matter of replacing gas-powered vehicles but also optimizing existing operations. Plan better routes and improve driver behavior to take action today while saving money.
Healthy vehicles help the environment. Our fleet card program, combined with telematics solutions, minimizes maintenance administration, so you can prevent damages instead of reacting to issues.
Start with a pilot program by integrating a few test vehicles into your fleet to gather insights and assess their performance. Use your actual data to determine how to roll out your zero-emissions fleet.
With this helpful guide, you can tell if your fleet is ready to go electric in 2023.

Sustainable fleet management is based on fleet management principles that reduce your fleet’s carbon footprint by choosing more environmentally friendly vehicles and improving fuel efficiency. A sustainable fleet management strategy will guide you on which sustainable vehicles to introduce into your fleet and how to reduce emissions from your existing gas and diesel vehicles.
The Government of Canada will require 100% of car and passenger truck sales be zero-emission by 2035 in Canada.
The cornerstones of an effective, sustainable fleet management strategy are to:
Identify inefficient vehicles and either replace them with cleaner alternatives or remove them from your fleet.
Optimize routes using telematics to reduce kilometres travelled.
Increase fuel efficiency by acquiring low-consumption vehicles, keeping up with preventative maintenance schedules, implementing driver training, and reducing idling.
A fleet management company can work with you to identify the areas that will most impact your organization.
In addition to the sustainable fleet options discussed already, you can begin transitioning to intermediary vehicles. Start by replacing your standard internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles with hybrid ICE vehicles. This will allow you to use a similar vehicle as you've been using historically, but it will consume less fuel.
Plug-in hybrid vehicles are another option. They combine the features of an electric vehicle and a hybrid ICE vehicle to further reduce your fleet’s fuel consumption. These vehicles have an immediate effect on reducing your carbon footprint.
Once suitable battery electric vehicles are available for your end use, you can then begin transitioning to them. Moving from internal combustion engine vehicles to all-electric vehicles is a multi-year strategy.
At Foss National Leasing, we’ll follow our four-phased approach to help you transition your fleet to electric vehicles.
- Assess - a preliminary examination of the feasibility of converting your vehicles from internal combustion engines to electric. We rely on the first party data, which we collect within our electric vehicles pilot program.
- Design - a more comprehensive and detailed examination, driver surveys, and the creation of your implementation plan
- Implement - execution of your plan
- Manage - review assumptions, confirm goals, and monitor performance
Focus on efficiency when acquiring new vehicles. Discover your options to build affordable, productive, and sustainable fleets.
Choose from open-end or closed-end lease offers—greater flexibility, fewer restrictions, and real benefits for businesses.
Consider switching to zero-emissions vehicles to reduce your organization's greenhouse gas emissions. We can help you transition to an electric or fuel-cell fleet in a smooth and cost-effective manner.
