Solving Business Challenges

Future Energy’s EV dealership solution helps dealers solve the current and future challenges of the growing EV market in each critical area, including:

  • Retail Lots
  • Public EV Charging
  • Showroom & Customer Evolution
  • Servicing & Vehicle Storage
  • Inventory Management
  • Vehicle Preparation
  • Power Management
  • Financial Incentives

Retail Lots

The Challenge

  • Customers may be unaccustomed to electric vehicles and charging stations causing apprehension to an EV purchase
  • Maintaining the charge levels of test-drive vehicles creates a new operational challenge

The Future Energy Solution

  • Acclimate first-time EV buyers to EV charging stations by showing them how they work and helping them install the station’s mobile app
  • Maintain the test-drive experience by remotely monitoring vehicle charge levels and health with MaestroTM software to keep retail lot vehicles charged

Public EV Charging

The Challenge

  • Creating increased brand awareness with current EV owners for future EV sales and service opportunities

The Future Energy Solution

  • Create more sales and service opportunities by offering EV charging stations to the public
  • Reinforce your brand and culture with customized graphics on EV charging unit hardware and software interfaces

Showroom & Customer Evolution

The Challenge

  • Dealerships need to find their role in making the transition to electric vehicles comfortable for private and commercial buyers
  • Private and commercial customers may be unaware of how to integrate EV charging into their lifestyle or business operations, or may be unaware of how to use or find a station, causing apprehension of an EV purchase

The Future Energy Solution

  • Engage and educate potential private and commercial EV customers by displaying and demonstrating residential, public and fleet EV charging stations in the showroom
  • Alleviate customer concerns of EV charge accessibility by demonstrating the mobile EV charging app – which notifies customer of where to utilize, reserve or obtain a charging station

Service & Vehicle Storage

The Challenge

  • Electric vehicles require less maintenance and will result in a loss of service revenue
  • Recharging electric vehicles that have been stored long-term for servicing or after service requires a new operational process

The Future Energy Solution

  • Create your own after-sales strategy to sell residential, commercial and fleet charging systems to customers with branded hardware
  • Access EV charger owner vehicle information and analytics post-sale to identify further sales opportunities
  • Charge vehicles on-site and deliver adequately charged vehicles to the customer as part of vehicle standard service offerings

Inventory Management

The Challenge

  • Monitoring in-lot and out-lot EV charge levels
  • Integrating EV charge level monitoring into existing or new vehicle inventory management software

The Future Energy Solution

  • Connect to every electric vehicle within any in-lot and out-lot location to MaestroTM software
  • Visualize, manage and get alerts for EV inventory charge levels from anywhere with MaestroTM software
  • Manage inventory with the analytic tools integrated with MaestroTM software

Vehicle Preparation

The Challenge

  • Integrating EV charging into the preparation processes of sold, lease turn-in and serviced vehicles

The Future Energy Solution

  • Create a consistent experience by remotely monitoring vehicle charge levels with MaestroTM software
  • Charge vehicles on-site and deliver adequately charged vehicles to the customer

Power Management

The Challenge

  • At a minimum, EV charging will double the electricity required to operate a dealership
  • Most properties do not have the utility power access capable of accommodating the increased usage for EV charging
  • Avoiding peak demand charges and controlling operating costs
  • Some properties may experience up to a two-year wait period for a utility company to deliver and install adequate power to match increasing demand

The Future Energy Solution

  • Work with utility companies to create strategies to obtain adequate power accommodations for your property and out-lot locations
  • Visualize, manage and get alerts of power usage with MaestroTM software to proactively avoid peak demand charges
