Electrify Your Fleet With These Offerings

Electrify Your Fleet With These Offerings

In this article we’ll explore electrification programs and incentives to help fleet managers:
● Swap out old vehicles for electric models
● Install charging infrastructure

Buses and light-duty fleet vehicles make up around 21% of vehicles on the road and more than a quarter of transport-related emissions. Transportation authorities and local governments across California are taking steps to encourage the electrification of vehicle fleets for a cleaner and more sustainable transportation future.

Are you a fleet manager interested in electrification? Electrifying your fleet can help your organization reduce operating costs and meet emissions reduction goals. EVs also offer lower maintenance & higher uptime that directly benefit fleet operators. MCE wants to connect you to the resources and information that you need to start electrifying.
