Home EV Chargers a New Asset Class to be Managed by Fleet Managers


November 28, 2022

The 123rd State of the Fleet Industry video produced by Automotive Fleet offers insights into the state of the fleet market as presented by AF Editor Mike Antich.

🎙Today’s topics include:

  • Home EV chargers have emerged as a brand-new asset class that will be managed by fleet managers.
  • If the home charger is hardwired, no attempt will be made to recover it if the employee leaves and it will remain with the house.
  • Employees must sign a waiver before a charger is installed in their home saying they will hold the company harmless should something go wrong with the installation. 
  • Supply chain constraints exist for switch gears and upgraded transformers with lead times of 12-18 months before delivery.
