Fleet electric vehicles can help an organization reduce emissions, cut fuel costs, and lower operating costs. Over 40 light duty EVs are available in California, and the medium and heavy duty EV market is quickly expanding. We can help you identify the best opportunities to utilize cleaner electric vehicles in your operations.
Are you a fleet operator who currently owns or leases electric fleet vehicles, or is planning to purchase or lease electric fleet vehicles?
If so, you can access several fleet-focused programs for vehicle electrification and charging infrastructure development.
