EV100 is a global initiative bringing together forward looking companies committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles (EVs) and making electric transport the new normal by 2030.

The transport sector is the fastest-growing contributor to climate change, accounting for 23% of global energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Electric transport offers a major solution in cutting millions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year, as well as curbing transport related air and noise pollution.

With businesses owning over half of all new registered vehicles on the road, it is crucial that companies lead the shift to electric vehicles. Through their investment, and influence on millions of staff and customers worldwide, they can address rising global transport emissions. They can also significantly enhance mass demand for electric vehicles. By setting out their future EV purchasing requirements on an ambitious timescale, companies can drive mass roll-out and make electric cars more rapidly affordable for everyone around the world.

  • Join the club

    Through EV100, companies can showcase their electric transport leadership, and help members to reduce electric vehicle investment costs through best practice sharing. The campaign drives engagement and dialogue between governments and other stakeholders to collaboratively address the remaining barriers to EV uptake and infrastructure roll-out.

    To join, companies are invited to make a public commitment to one or more of the following areas with a 2030 target date:

    • Integrating electric vehicles into directly owned or leased corporate fleets
    • Placing requirements in service contracts for electric vehicle usage
    • Supporting staff to use electric vehicles by installing charging infrastructure at all premises
    • Supporting electric vehicle uptake by customers by installing charging infrastructure at all premises

    EV100 applies to battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids/extended range (minimum 30 miles/50km electric) and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

  • Our impact

    More and more leading companies are joining EV100 to accelerate the electric transport transition, reduce air pollution and tackle climate change.

    At the end of its first year in September 2018, EV100 members had made fleet and charging commitments across more than 66 markets and a wide range of sectors, from postal and logistics to retail and telecommunications.

    To date, more than 2 million vehicles are committed under EV100 and members will provide millions of staff and customers with additional charging infrastructure by 2030. EV100 members have committed to install charging infrastructure at around 2,000 workplace and customer parking sites.

    Through EV100, The Climate Group harnesses the collective purchasing power of EV100 members to build demand for electric vehicles and send a clear signal to the market.

  • The business case

    The market for electric vehicles is rapidly expanding. In 2017, a new global sales record of over 1 million cars was reached. Over 5 million electric vehicles are now on the road worldwide.  

    Customer charging is good for customer engagement.  Our EV100 members in the retail sector see charging facilities as an added service for their customers.

    EV integration can dramatically reduce running costs of fleets. Our EV100 member Deutsche Post DHL, for example, is already seeing 60-70% savings on fuel costs and 60-80% savings on maintenance and repair from its StreetScooter EVs compared to internal combustion engine vehicles.  

    EVs are becoming increasingly price competitive. Battery pack costs – one of the major price factors for EVs – have gone down 85% since 2010. Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) predicts that unsubsidized up-front costs for battery electric vehicles will be less than internal combustion engine vehicles by 2024.  

    OEMs are rapidly moving away from petrol and diesel. Over $300 billion of investments in electric vehicles has been announced by global automakers.

    Air quality legislation is expected to increasingly restrict polluting vehicles. Cities such as London, Paris, Los Angeles, Seattle, Mexico City  and Tokyo, have already committed to creating zero emission zones by 2030.
