Adopting electric vehicles into city fleets is one of the most innovative ways a city can show its leadership and commitment to clean transportation. Cities can reduce both fleet emissions, fueling, and operating costs by replacing their fleet vehicles with EVs.
This webinar will explore the key considerations for cities adopting electric vehicles into their fleets with commitments to go all-electric. You’ll hear best practices, lessons learned, and challenges.
