Benefits

EVs are four times more efficient than diesel and gasoline vehicles and offer significant fuel cost savings, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Greenlining Institute.

With fewer and less complex parts, EVs are easier to maintain, resulting in less down time and lower lifetime operation costs.

EVs reduce your carbon footprint, supporting your emission and sustainability goals.

Compare emissions and payback of your fleet’s gasoline or diesel vehicles to EVs by using the AFLEET Tool.

EVs offer instantaneous torque with nearly silent acceleration. With much quieter motors than gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles, EVs reduce traffic noise.

Incentives

We offer rebates for DTE business and commercial electric customers with eligible fleets that install qualified EV chargers. Please see the Terms & Conditions for eligible fleets.


Rebates available:

Charge Speed

Level 2 Charge Time

One hour of Level 2 charging provides up to 30 miles of range and is best suited for charging eFleets with lower up time requirements.

DCFC Charge Time

Provides eFleets greater up time with the fastest charging available.
