New GSA Initiative Replaces Aging Federal Fleet with Hybrid Vehicles
May 29, 2013
The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) on April 22 announced a new GSA fleet consolidation initiative to give federal agencies the opportunity to replace their aging fleet with hybrid vehicles. Through this initiative, GSA will expand the number of hybrid vehicles in the federal fleet by up to 10,000 vehicles, resulting in the reduction of approximately one million gallons of fuel per year for the life of these vehicles. This opportunity will allow more efficient fleet operations, create significant savings through fuel efficiency, and make government more sustainable.
Through this initiative, federal agencies can now consolidate vehicles into the GSA Fleet inventory. If agencies choose to participate in the program, GSA will fund the total incremental cost to replace eligible vehicles with new hybrid sedans. See the GSA press release.
