Public fleets are realizing significant benefits from the deployment of plug-in electric vehicles (EVs), and many public fleets want to ‘lead by example’ by showing the public the benefits of transitioning to EVs. Although EVs are increasingly becoming a cost-effective and viable opportunity for fleets, higher purchase costs, complex procurement processes, and insufficient charging infrastructure remain barriers to adoption.
The EV Smart Fleets initiative sought to overcome these challenges and increase state and local fleet EV adoption by educating public fleets about EV benefits and conducting research on important elements for a new vehicle procurement.
Our featured resources includes a case study of a successful multi-jurisdictional electric vehicle (EV) procurement of 90 EVs for ten county and municipal public fleets that captured the value of the federal electric vehicle tax credit.
