Through a combination of innovative lease programs and grant investments, the BACC is facilitating the deployment of over 150 electric vehicles to municipal fleets. This includes the $5 million EV Fleet National Demonstration Project supported by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and lease programs with unique terms that address the needs of local governments. The project is encouraging EV adoption through best-practices and a regional visibility campaign.


Fleets provide an ideal way to demonstrate the benefits of EVs and government vehicle fleets account for the largest sector of fleets in the country, with state and local governments accounting for over 4.1 million cars and trucks alone. EVs provide lower total cost of ownership and emissions reductions. This EV fleet is projected to achieve fuel cost savings of $500,000 and 1.5 million lbs. of net CO2 avoidance over five years.
