A Guide for EV Charging Network for Uber, Fleets and E-truck

In the previous article, we explored the electric vehicle (EV) charging station market and delved deeply into the usage patterns and user behaviors of public charging infrastructure. Now, let’s turn our attention to specific operational user groups, which include Uber drivers, taxi drivers, logistics fleets, and electric heavy truck fleets, among others.

The operational user groups are the most important group of high-frequency users of fast EV charging. The charging habits of these users are crucial for charging station operators, as they directly impact the design, operation, and profitability of the charging stations.

Analysis of Operational User Charging Habits

 

High-Frequency Usage:

Operational users, such as Uber and taxi drivers, need to keep their vehicles running and therefore frequently use charging stations. This means that charging stations need to be able to handle the usage pressure during peak times, especially during working hours.

Preference for Fast Charging:

Logistics fleets and electric heavy truck fleets tend to prefer direct current (DC) fast chargers because they can minimize downtime and quickly restore driving capability. Therefore, it is a wise choice to set up fast charging stations along highways or near logistics centers with higher-power DC charging stations.

Those fleets and E-trucks for inner cities will come back to their logistic parks or specific parking areas to charge at night. In this case, the small DC EV charger will be the best choice for them.

Concentrated Charging on Workdays:

Operational users tend to charge more frequently during the daytime on workdays, indicating that charging stations need sufficient operational capacity to meet demand during these times.

Location Choice:

Operational users may choose charging stations near industrial areas or city centers because these locations are closer to their workplaces or areas where customers are concentrated. The geographical location of charging stations is vital for attracting operational users.

Energy Demand:

Due to the high frequency of vehicle use, operational users may need to charge more energy during each charging event to ensure sufficient driving range. This means that charging stations need to provide enough energy output to meet these users’ needs.

Strategic Charging:

Operational users may choose their charging times based on charging prices and demand peaks to reduce costs and avoid waiting in line. Therefore, charging stations may need to adopt dynamic pricing strategies to attract these users to charge during off-peak periods.
