EV100 continues to grow, with companies now running over 400,000 EVs worldwide

20 February 2023, 9:53 UTC 2 min read

Leading businesses are already operating over 400,000 electric vehicles (EVs) across the globe as part of Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, a new report released today can reveal.

Total reported EVs put on the road by EV100 members jumped 93% in the last 12 months. By 2030, EV100 businesses will collectively transition over 5.75 million vehicles to electric as part of their commitment to making electric transport the new normal.

Today’s newly released Progress and Insights Report also shows the EV100 network has already rolled out over 30,000 individual charging units across 72 markets worldwide, with commitments to install infrastructure at over 6,000 sites globally by the end of the decade.

The speed at which businesses are transitioning their fleets from petrol and diesel to electric clearly shows there is strong demand for affordable EVs supported by comprehensive, reliable charging networks.

Support from policymakers, in particular through clear phase-out dates for petrol and diesel vehicles, and implementing measures such as zero emission vehicle (ZEV) mandates and CO2 standards, will help businesses to invest with more clarity and confidence in EVs as the future of road transport, Climate Group said.

“In the fifth year of EV100, it’s fantastic to see how much we have grown together. It’s not just about committing to transition to EVs, it’s making it happen. Our members are taking action today to take polluting petrol and diesel vehicles off the road, almost doubling the number of EVs within their combined fleets in last 12 months. It’s great, too, to see them roll-out charging stations at their premises and invest in the wider infrastructure that will make electric road transport the new reality for all.”

Sandra Roling, Director of Transport, Climate Group

Now in its fifth year, EV100 has grown from an initial group of 10 businesses in 2017 to a group of 127 EV pioneers spanning 100 global markets, continually raising their level of ambition on the way to going fully electric by 2030.

In a further vote of confidence in zero-emission road transport, Climate Group recently announced a new EV100+ commitment focused on medium- and heavy-duty vehicles larger than 7.5 tonnes. Its five launch members alone will together transition over 90,000 vehicles to zero emission by 2040 in OECD markets, China and India.

“More and more businesses are viewing a transition to EVs as a necessary part of their sustainability drive and EV100 members are at the cutting edge of this transition. We need their ambition to be matched by governments, carmakers and businesses across the globe. To limit global temperature rises to no more than 1.5 degrees, far more vehicles need to switch to electric. To support this, charging infrastructure must be built out rapidly and manufacturers must expand the volume and variety of vehicles on the market. Governments need to provide clear direction in the form of phase-out dates, supported by measures such as ZEV mandates and CO2 standards.

“Our Progress and Insights Report launched today is clear – EV100 members are taking bold steps now to increase the number of EVs on the road. It shows businesses can really shift the needle when they put their collective weight behind it, and make sure the transition to electric is as swift as possible.”

Sandra Roling, Director of Transport, Climate Group

A collection of global businesses, all EV100 members, have commented on the launch.

“Sustainability is a top priority at Siemens. Therefore, we’ve committed ourselves to fully electrify our fleet till 2030 by joining the EV100 initiative. To further accelerate the EV transition, we incentivize home charging, offer free charging at Siemens locations, and track CO2 emissions to constantly reduce our carbon footprint.”

Stefan Kurz, Head of Global Fleet Management at Siemens AG

“Zomato is proud to have been an early adopter of the EV100 pledge. We firmly believe that EVs can transform our business into one that's green, safe, inclusive while enhancing livelihoods for our delivery partners. We are grateful to be working with nearly 20 start-ups and clean mobility firms that have helped thousands of our partners access EVs at affordable rates to undertake deliveries across 43 Indian cities.

“We ask that state and local governments support an orderly transition to high quality and safe EVs through policies that a) favour the development of a reliable and dense battery swapping and charging network b) overcome the hurdles of access to finance for delivery partners and c) ensure all players meet rigorous safety standards.”

Anjalli Ravi Kumar, Chief Sustainability Officer, Zomato

“Deloitte’s commitment as a ‘triple-joiner’ of the Climate Group’s RE100, EP100, and EV100 campaigns is an example of our efforts in action to hold ourselves accountable and drive responsible climate choices within our organization and beyond. As of 2022, we have converted nearly 25% of our fleet to electric vehicles, marking an important milestone in our commitment to convert 100% of our global fleet to hybrid and electric vehicles by 2030. To continue driving progress, we must work across industries and governments to speed EV adoption in global markets by working to improve supply chain surety, solve for EV delivery delays, fast-track charging infrastructure development, and combat perceptions of technological limitations.”

Kathy Alsegaf, Global Chief Sustainability Officer, Deloitte

"The TEPCO Group aims to be a leader in building a safe and sustainable society. By creating value centred on "carbon neutrality" and "disaster prevention," and driven by our corporate philosophy of "Develop the future of energy; Deliver a comfortable life," we strive to be a company that is chosen by customers and trusted by society.

EVs are a key tool in order to realize this goal, and we are working on EV promotion as one of our priority projects.

In 2019, we became the first Japanese energy company to participate in the EV100 Commitment, and since then we have been working diligently to shift our fleet of vehicles to EVs.

As new "Kei," or minicars, were released in 2022, we are actively introducing them for business use.

By solving various issues that come to light in the process of deploying EVs ourselves, we will accumulate knowledge and help support domestic companies in their introduction of EVs.

Through the EV100 Commitment, we will contribute to the promotion of carbon neutrality."

Shota Shinjo, Manager of Electric Vehicle Promotion Office, Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings

"In 2018, NTT became the first telecommunications operator in the world to join the EP100 and EV100 initiatives. To support a sustainable society, the NTT Group has reduced its corporate fleet and converted internal combustion engine vehicles(ICEV) into electric vehicles(EV).

In addition, we have been installing EV charging stations at our telecommunications and office buildings, providing and developing smart charging services on our own. To address the challenges of EV adoption,  we are taking initiative with our partners to find solutions.

Through these initiatives in terms of sustainability, we are striving to promote the development and growth of the NTT Group and to contribute to Japanese society and global society."

Susumu Yoneoka, Senior Manager (Energy Planning), Technology Planning Department, NTT Corporation

“Allianz Group is truly dedicated and committed to supporting the EV 100 initiative. Even before joining the program, we had started with the transition to decommission pure-combustion engine vehicles in many of our entities. Sustainable Car Mobility for us at Allianz is not limited to policy changes, but also includes convincing and changing all of our mindsets. We do this by offering alternative sustainable means of transportation to colleagues who rely on their vehicles and additionally providing charging infrastructure at home, at the office and on the road to make it as convenient as possible. Our path to net-zero is not only a corporate program but it’s also a value that connects the global Allianz community.”

Jens Bäringhausen, Head of Global Mobility Services, Allianz Services
