Pittsburgh to Add 10 Electric Cars to Fleet

The vehicles — and the stations that will charge them — will be made possible through two state grants. They will be among the first public fruits from the city’s Department of Innovation and Performance, which has spent nearly two years studying the city’s vehicle fleet and how to improve its efficiency and cost while reducing pollution, said Grant Ervin, the city’s chief resilience officer.

Gov. Tom Wolf announced last week that the city would receive Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants through the Department of Environmental Protection of $80,000 to help buy 10 vehicles and $175,000 to establish charging stations.
