On February 1, Targa Telematics announced a partnership with SAP Labs (France) to launch a joint project that accelerates digital transformation as well as the transition to electric vehicles for leasing and rental companies, corporate fleets, and airport services vehicles.  This project aims to support customers in fleet electrification and management.
The solution reduces the company’s environmental impact by evaluating its entire fleet and vehicles that can potentially be replaced by electric models. According to an analysis by Targa Telematics, 70% of vehicles within large fleets could be easily replaced with electric cars.
The solution provides fleet managers with advanced tools to manage and book charging stations with the required power output, automatically setting the correct KWH value to optimize recharging. The project can be completed with a Corporate Car Sharing solution with Keyless access to the latest electric vehicle models, optimizing its power supply via the Open E-Mobility platform.
