In today’s post, we learn from electric utility vehicle product expert Russ Ziegler how he helps organizations with large fleets find the right vehicles based on safety, sustainability and budget. Russ has extensive experience advising fleet managers who oversee higher education, transit and/or shuttle applications. Read on to learn more about the benefits of an LSV compared to conventional, gas-powered vehicles and how Russ helps fleet managers make data-driven decisions.
We help customers save thousands of dollars by switching to electric Polaris GEM vehicles. They’re low maintenance and can run up to 8 hours on a single charge. Large fleets can save six-figures in fuel and maintenance costs, not to mention significantly reducing their CO2 emissions.
When you think about it, most operations don't need a truck designed to be driven 80 mph on the freeway. On a typical campus, vehicles never exceed 25 mph and are only driven about 12 miles per day.

Polaris GEM vehicles are also eligible for alternative-fuel vehicle funding programs such as The San Joaquin Valley Air Grant (up to $20,000 per vehicle, $100,000 per agency per year).
