Car rental operators are well aware that electric vehicle penetration is increasing, and that, at some point, they’ll need to start renting them. But are the real challenges to EV rentals being examined and solved, from the operators’ POV? In this seminar, panelists will first discuss recent developments in this fast-moving market that matter to car rental. Then, the panel will interact with an operator who has lots of questions for how to make this work. The discussion will delve into the on-the-ground challenges with vehicle costs, charging infrastructure, operational logistics, and staff education. They’ll also share insights into new revenue stream opportunities and the new customer experience.
