Current goals of reducing local and global emissions increase the popularity of electric vehicles. Furthermore a growing number of companies are considering to change their vehicle fleet and their company car policies. These sometimes fundamental changes pose multiple strategic and operational planning challenges.

In a first part we will examine the strategic problem of integrating electric vehicles into an existing fleet in a corporate environment. Based on historic and estimated mobility demand as well as on scenarios for the future development of prices and the availability of recharging infrastructure our method is able to propose plans for buying and selling conventional and electric vehicles. The bi-objective approach allows to take decisions based the trade-off between CO2 emissions and cost.
