Electric vehicles (EVs) can not only provide a lower total cost of ownership, but with 7Gen’s EV-as-a-Service solution, they can also lower your total monthly costs.
Switching to EVs can save you up to 90% in energy costs and up to 60% in maintenance costs in comparison to equivalent gasoline or diesel powered vehicles. Combined with governmental incentives programs, the total costs of ownership of EVs can be considerably lower.
With 7Gen’s EV-as-a-Service you pay a single monthly fee for your EV, charging infrastructure, all installation & commissioning, software and 7Gen’s expertise and support on everything EV related. That way, you evenly spread the initial acquisition costs over the life of the vehicle, and start saving money from operational cost savings (fuel & maintenance) from day one.

Medium and Heavy Duty Vehicle (MHDV) segments that can benefit the most from the advantages of electric vehicles include last-mile/regional delivery, garbage collection, and passenger transport in urban areas. Pick-up trucks are on the near term horizon as well.
For drivers and fleet managers, operational requirements are the leading consideration when purchasing an EV. The majority of medium and heavy-duty trucks are used for short enough routes to be electrified with EVs available today.
The majority of electric trucks can travel around 160 to 320 km on a single charge; some have an even greater range like the Volvo VNR Electric tractor offering 440 km.

Launched in January 2020, 7Gen helps companies confidently transition to zero emission vehicles by providing full service EV and chargers leasing, its industry expertise, tailored optimization software, as well as planning & implementing the new technology.
The name 7Gen refers to an ancient Iroquois philosophy on which the company was built upon: Our actions consider the impact beyond the current generation, expanding our outlook to include the next 7 generations to come, while equally reflecting on learnings from previous generations.
“One of Ikea’s home delivery partners obtained their first EVs through working with 7Gen, which helped that delivery partner find the investments and technology to start replacing their current vehicles with EVs, says Melissa Barbosa, Ikea Canada’s country sustainability manager.
Ikea has a global goal for 100 percent of its transport for customer deliveries and services to use electric vehicles or other zero-emissions solutions by 2025. Without 7Gen’s help, Barbosa says she doesn’t think “we’d get here as quickly or bring as many service providers on board.”
Few companies have this sort of knowledge, Barbosa notes, and securing 7Gen’s expertise in the Canadian market is “critical.” “
