Volkswagen Financial Services (VWFS) fleet has launched a tool designed to help drivers integrate electric vehicles (EVs) into their daily routines. This initiative aims to facilitate EV adoption among businesses, aligning with the ZEV mandate and the 2035 ban on new internal combustion engine (ICE) cars and vans.

According to a press release, the free EV4ME online tool helps drivers understand life with an EV and find the best model for their needs. It considers factors like commuting distance, charging availability, and home life to recommend a suitable EV. By answering simple questions about driving habits and charging access, users receive tailored recommendations through the tool’s intuitive algorithm, which identifies the appropriate range category for their needs.

After determining the optimal range category, EV4ME connects users to VWFS Fleet’s comprehensive EV Directory. This platform allows drivers to explore specific EV models, compare key performance data — including real-world mileage range and charging times — and review other technical details.

James Fields-Davis, Head of Fleet Development at VWFS Fleet, said: “With EV adoption gathering real pace now, it’s important that businesses looking to transition their fleet ensure drivers are on board with the switch. The new EV4ME helps with exactly that, ensuring drivers can easily identify the right vehicle for their individual driving patterns – both for work and non-work purposes.

“As a first in the car leasing sector, EV4ME now provides a straightforward and accessible way for potential EV drivers to understand how easy, or hard, living with an EV might be for them. It also helps to focus their thinking on the type of EV that would best suit their needs, by helping them to make informed comparisons across different EVs.

“With so many models now available, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but this tool helps drivers to identify the best EV solution for their individual needs, arming them with the essential facts and figures they need, all from a single source.
