Public fleets are realizing significant benefits from the deployment of plug-in electric vehicles (EVs). Many public fleets also want to ‘lead by example’ by showing the general public the benefits of transitioning to EVs. Although EVs are increasingly becoming a successful application for fleets, higher incremental costs, procurement processes, and insufficient charging infrastructure remain critical barriers to adoption.
EV Smart Fleets seeks to overcome these challenges by aggregating state and local fleet purchases for EVs through a multi-state aggregated EV solicitation and procurement agreement. EV Smart Fleets goals include:
Accelerate electric vehicle adoption by public fleets
Lower the purchase price of electric vehicles for public fleets by at least 15% through volume purchases and creative financing and ownership tools
Increase access to a wider range of electric models
EV Smart Fleets will also seek to improve access to EV charging stations for public fleets.
