GSA Plans to Add 10,000 Hybrid Cars to Federal Fleet
April 22, 2013
The General Services Administration plans to add up to 10,000 hybrid cars to its fleet — effectively doubling the number — in an attempt to get agencies to replace conventional vehicles with more fuel-efficient ones.
Acting administrator Dan Tangherlini announced Monday that agencies will be able to lease the new hybrid vehicles at the same cost as conventional vehicles if they join GSA’s fleet management system.
If all 10,000 hybrids are leased, agencies will save a combined 1 million gallons of fuel a year, he said. The number of hybrids GSA acquires will be determined by demand from customer agencies, Tangherlini said.
GSA currently has 10,672 hybrids in its fleet.
