Most New Zealand businesses which have a fleet of commercial vehicles know they will switch to low emission electric vehicles at some future time. Compiling useful data to build a business case can be an obstacle that may delay this.

If you’re in this situation, then SwitchMyFleet is designed for you.

There are several factors you need to consider in order to switch some or all of your current internal combustion engine fleet to an EV fleet.  We know it’s much more than just purchase price, maintenance costs and electricity prices.

You need to consider vehicle types, number of vehicles, vehicle sizes and loads, and whether the vehicles are collecting or delivering goods – and importantly, the typical destinations they go to, and battery capacity needed to return to base.


We’ve thought of all of these important variables (and more) and built them into this free evaluation calculator.

SwitchMyFleet does the heavy lifting for you, giving you metrics you need to build your business case to switch some or all of your fleet to electric.

We’ve been helping businesses like yours for over 30 years by empowering them to make smarter business and operational decisions to achieve their goals faster. Our solutions are powered by NationalMap, for authoritative and comprehensive road, address, and location data for New Zealand.

Critchlow Geospatial’s heritage is in developing smart routing solutions that makes transport and service delivery design easier and more effective.

How does SwitchMyFleet work?

SwitchMyFleet, powered by NationalMap, is a free online tool that provides operational cost comparisons between internal combustion engine vehicles (ICE) and electric vehicles (EV).

You will use your real-world business scenarios to compare the costs of operating different sizes and types of vehicles.

The results provide you with the metrics you need to build your business case for switching some or all of your commercial fleet to EV.

The goal of SwitchMyFleet is to bring EV purchase decisions forward to kick-start New Zealand’s conversion to commercial EVs.

Challenging our assumptions about commercial EV's

When Critchlow Geospatial applied for co-funding from New Zealand government in 2020 to build a tool that would assist fleet operators to compare and contrast an electric vehicle fleet to their current ICE fleet, we knew that we were entering uncharted territory.

Critchlow responded to this complex informational challenge by creating SwitchMyFleet, a free-to-air website that enables fleet operators to compare the costs and the results of various fleet sizes and vehicle configurations, including battery sizes.
