Scores of Cities, Counties Commit to Electric Fleet Future

Dozens of cities and counties from across the nation pledged to purchasing hundreds of electric vehicles and buses by the end of 2020.

The Climate Mayors Electric Vehicle Purchasing Collaborative announced that 142 cities and counties from 38 states have committed to purchasing more than 2,100 EVs by the end of next year.

The collaborative leverages the buying power of its dozens of member cities to better negotiate fleet vehicle purchases. It will apply that same approach to work through the bid process for electric school buses, hoping to transform those fleets as well.
